How to Make Hot Cocoa 

You’ll find that recipes for crockpot hot chocolate can involve cocoa powder or it can use chocolate chips.

We like to choose to use chocolate chips because it creates a rich and creamy crockpot hot chocolate recipe. 

For this last batch we actually used unsweetened chocolate chips since we were looking for a richer hot chocolate that wasn’t too sweet.

While we were on a tour of London, we stopped into a chocolatier who was famous for their hot chocolate. This recipe is similar to that famous chocolate shop recipe!
