Witch’s Brew Hot Chocolate {in the slow cooker}

Witch's Brew Hot Chocolate
We make my Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate a lot around here!  I love it because it keeps warm in my slow cooker and I don’t have to mess with it, but my kids love it because it’s so darn good!  The other day, we made a white chocolate version and turned it green…and named it Witch’s Brew because #halloween.  This was a HUGE hit!  On Halloween night, I’m thinking we could have this in our slow cooker and then when we’re back at the house and the kids are counting their loot, they can have a cup (and me too!).  Happy (almost) Halloween!
This makes enough to serve a crowd!  Depending on how big your mugs are, depends on how much this yields.  You will use a gallon of milk for this recipe…so you should have plenty for a party!  This recipe is simple to divide as well, so you can make half as much if you’re only serving your family.
Shopping List
2 (14 oz) cans of sweetened condensed milk
2 (12 oz) bags of white chocolate chips
1 gallon of milk (I used 2%)
1 teaspoon vanilla
green food coloring
whipped cream to garnish, optional
Marshmallows to garnish, optional (we used pumpkin spice marshmallows)
For easy clean up, use a slow cooker liner.
In your slow cooker, layer in your sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips. Turn slow cooker to high and stir every 15 minutes for the first 30 minutes (this will help it melt faster).  Once your chocolate chips have melted, whisk in your milk and vanilla.  Next, whisk in a few drops of green food coloring until you reach your desired color.  Cover and continue to cook on high as you serve this cocoa for the next 3 to 4 hours.  Continue to stir periodically.  Garnish with whipped cream and marshmallows.
That’s it!  Keep it cooking on high so that it stays warm as guests enjoy it.
Ashby asked me if I could make this every day 🙂 .

    Before I retired, I taught kindergarten. I would make white hot chocolate in the crock pot for my students in January. It was a recipe much like yours called Snowman Soup. January is such a long dreary month in Missouri so I would plan different weekly snowman activities as a behavior incentive. At the end of the month we would celebrate with snowman soup! Students would get to take home a packet of hot chocolate mix, marshmallows chocolate chips and pretzels(The snowman’s arms of course!). It was a nice way to break up the winter blahs!

    I halved the recipe, and it still made a ton! Any idea how long it will save in the fridge?

    • Mix and Match Mama November 1, 2017 at 5:32 am

      I would say three days!
