This hot chocolate recipe is absolute perfection. It is creamy smooth, has just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate flavor, and tastes better than anything that can be bought. This recipe boasts not just one but two bars of freshly chopped chocolate as well as a bit of heavy cream to help give it just the right texture.
One of the wonderful things about this recipe is that there is no need to keep watch on a simmering pot on the stove- this hot chocolate is prepared in a slow cooker. Because it slowly builds up heat and simmers for several hours, it winds up being the perfect flavor and texture. Just be sure to whisk it about every hour to make sure that the chocolate melts into the liquid perfectly.
Another good thing about this recipe is that it is a good base- any number of ingredients and toppings may be added to it to give the hot chocolate additional flavor. Sally’s Baking Addiction suggests adding candy canes, chocolate syrup, salted caramel, or traditional marshmallows.
