Christmas Eve Hot Cocoa
- 1 ½ cups heavy cream
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 6 ½ cups milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Candy canes
- Aerosol spray whipped cream, such as Redi Whip
You’ll also need:
- Crock Pot or 6 quart stock pot (see note)
- Serving mugs
Combine first five ingredients in Crock Pot or stock pot* and heat on low until chocolate chips are melted. Whisk to stir and help melt the chocolate. When hot cocoa is fully melted and warm, serve topped with marshmallows, a swirl of whipped cream, or a candy cane stick for stirring. Enjoy!
*Note: if you use a stock pot on your cook top, keep a close eye on it and stir frequently to prevent the milk and chocolate from scalding to the bottom. Crock Pots do heat more evenly and slowly and will prevent this.
Special treats like homemade hot cocoa are perfect paired with a big bowl of popcorn and your favorite Christmas movie played on your new or used RV’s entertainment center and in front of a cozy roaring fireplace.
