Hot Chocolate

Our slow cooker recipe for hot chocolate is so sweet and creamy it’s sure to be a hit with all your guests, perfect for those who are driving or the little ones at your get together.

Turn your slow cooker on high then add your single cream, Nutella, drinking chocolate powder and milk ensuring you give it a good stir. Leave to heat up for 2 hours before serving. After 2 hours keep your slow cooker on the warm setting and everyone can help themselves. Using glass mason jars is one of our favourite ways to serve this drink, spread Nutella round the rim of your glass and press sprinkles into it. Use a ladle to spoon in your hot steamy drink, top with squirty cream and sprinkles.
