For at least 10 years, I have made Homemade Hot Chocolate for our family Christmas Eve gathering. It has always been a hit with everyone. This warm delicious drink is now synonymous with my thoughts of Christmas!

I have tweaked the recipe that I found many years ago and now consider this my own recipe.  In fact, I can’t even seem to locate the original recipe that I used in the beginning. I hope you enjoy this and add it to your family Christmas traditions!

Sweet and Creamy Homemade Hot Chocolate made in a slow cooker or crock pot is the perfect beverage for a holiday or winter gathering. My family loves this on Christmas Eve! #HotChocolate #ChristmasLeftovers?

If there are leftovers. just put it in a sealed container (an old milk jug works great) and refrigerate for up to 3 days. The Hot Chocolate can be put back into the slow cooker to warm back up or you can stir it and pour some in your mugs and warm in the microwave to enjoy quickly. I have also warmed this on the stove but you need to stir continually to keep it from scorching on the bottom.

I think that your family will love adding this the the list of holiday traditions and will expect it every year.
