I made Janelle’s hot cocoa for my family and we drank it for days! So this recipe comes with 2 thumbs up from my family!
Janelle says “There is nothing more comforting on a cool day than to walk into a nice warm home and be welcomed with a cup of homemade hot cocoa. This is a special treat I make for my children and my neighbors. It is simple and can be kept warm in the Crockpot. This recipe combines cocoa with chocolate chips to make it extra chocolaty. I also add 1 container of cool whip to make it extra creamy.”
Milk, cocoa, chocolate chips, hot water, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and salt
Add chocolate chips and whisk well until melted.
Add milk, vanilla, and cinnamon and whisk well.
Add an 8 oz container of cool whip- this makes it very creamy!!!
Transfer into a Crockpot on the lowest heat to keep warm
When ready to serve, top with whipped cream or marshmallows. Ahhhhh….this is not your instant cocoa mix, my friends! This is a REAL treat… Enjoy!
