Over Christmas break we had some snow and the boys wanted to go out and play. So I decided this would be a perfect time to put Crockpot Hot Cocoa on. It only takes 2 hours on high to make and that is just enough time for me.

We like to top our Hot Cocoa with Homemade Whipped Cream!  What I love is that I know what ingredients are in this tasty hot cocoa!  Better tasting than the powder for sure!
