Decadent Homemade Hot Chocolate

Well, if you’re a chocoholic & can’t ever get enough chocolate (like me!), then this is the recipe for you. Prep. time: about 5 minutes. Costs less than $10. Feeds 8 – 10.


  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao)
  • 5 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups whole milk
  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk


  1. In a medium saucepan, mix bittersweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, & heavy cream.
  2. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into crock-pot.
  4. Add vanilla extract, whole milk, & sweetened condensed milk to crock-pot & stir.
  5. Cover & heat on HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until hot.
  6. Enjoy!

Careful, it’ll be hot.

Please keep in mind that cooking times may vary so the first time you make a recipe, keep an eye on the crock-pot. You may need to adjust the amount of cooking time.

  3. Hi, Shellie. It looks yummy… Darn it! Do horror writers use words like yummy? *sigh* I hate it when I reveal that I’m really soft and not tough in the least. Now I have to send you a confidentiality agreement. ;)
    Seriously, being lactose intolerant, about how much lactaid am I gonna need for that bad boy?
    I hope life’s treating you well, as always, my friend. Take care.
