Winter has come to Michigan and when it gets cold and snowy, hot chocolate hits the spot! This is a recipe for a group. We used it after taking some members of the youth group sledding a few years back. It was great to have it hot and ready when we came in.
Crock pot Cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups boiling water
3 1/2 cups nonfat dry powdered milk
6 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon or a few candy canes(optional)
Combine sugar, cocoa and cinnamon (if using) in slow cooker. Add 2 cups boiling water. Stir well to dissolve.
Add dry milk powder, 6 cups water and vanilla. Stir well to dissolve. Add candy canes if desired.
Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.
Before serving, beat with rotary beater to make frothy. Ladle into mugs and top with marshmallows. Enjoy!
*makes 9-12 servings depending on size of mug
