Use your Crock-pot or slow cooker to make the easiest hot chocolate ever, then top mugs with pre-made and frozen dollops of whipped cream. 

Ingredients

    • 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 2 quarts whole milk
    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Frozen Whipped Cream

    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preparation

For the slow-cooker hot chocolate:

Combine all ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker and mix well. Cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Ladle the hot chocolate into mugs, top with frozen whipped cream dollops and serve.

For the frozen whipped cream:

In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the heavy cream with the sugar and vanilla at medium-high speed until smooth and thick.

Decoratively dollop the whipped cream on a foil-lined baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Using a small offset spatula, transfer the dollops onto mugs of hot chocolate and serve.
