With the days getting shorter and much colder I thought I would share with you guys my delicious Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate Recipe. If you are a fan of creamy and rich hot chocolate then you are going to love this unique twist on a classic Fall drink. The fact that it is made in a slow cooker gains it extra bonus points in my opinion, who doesn’t love a “no-watch” recipe right?

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate Recipe

The ingredients that go into our Hot Chocolate Recipe are simple and sweet! To make it creamy we used both condensed milk and cream which helps to create a thickness you won’t get with milk alone. We also use the traditional spices you would find in a Pumpkin Muffin or Pumpkin Spice Latte. You can adjust the amount of spices you use to fit your tastes, but I think we found a pretty good balance in our recipe. So are you ready for a sweetly spiced cup of Hot Chocolate?

how do you make hot chocolate in a slow cooker?

It is as easy as throwing everything together, giving it a stir and setting it to cook! Honestly, this is my preferred method of making Hot Chocolate as I don’t have to stand over the stove for 45 minutes to ensure the milk doesn’t scorch. And the best part of this Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate is that it is big enough for a crowd which makes it  great for holidays and gatherings!

You can even make it ahead of time and keep it in a sealed container in the fridge, then you just set your slow cooker to “keep warm” to reheat it slowly before your guests arrive. Anything that saves me time when I am trying to entertain is a win-win, especially when it only uses 1 dish.

toppings for your hot chocolate

You can get as creative as you would like with toppings for yours but personally I find this Hot Chocolate recipe perfect just the way it is. That being said, you can never go wrong with a dollop of whipped cream or a nice fluffy marshmallow.

Other toppings could include:

  • Fresh grated nutmeg
  • Chocolate dipped cinnamon sticks – a garnish with a purpose!
  • Cookies (cut and placed on the side of your mug)
  • Homemade Caramel Sauce for drizzle
  • Flavored marshmallows
  • Sprinkles for on top of whipped cream
  • Chopped Pecans or Walnuts – both delicious with the pumpkin flavors
