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.

You’ll need:

  • 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.

  1. OMG Shelli,

    It looks heavenly. You’ve just solved my after school snack decision for today – thanks! I’m sure my kiblets will thank you too 😉

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. 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.


    1. Hi Jimmy! *waves*

      Ha, ha, your comment made me laugh . . . horror writers using the word yummy! 😀 Well, if you don’t have an entire bottle of lactaid around, you could probably make it with soy milk (the chocolate ought to drown out the soy milk taste). I’m doing great, thanks. I hope you are, too. Cheers, my friend.
