The first of December.
It’s a magical day in my household! It’s the day that we embrace all things Christmas.
Whilst I start to get excited for the festive season from September (cough June cough), not everybody in my family feels the same way! So Christmas builds and bubbles inside of me for months and then on the first of December I throw Christmas up all over the place!!
Tis the season of Christmas movies and music, cosy evenings, blankets, candles, hot chocolate, slow cookers and tinsel!
On the 1st December we decorate!! And whilst we decorate we drink the best hot chocolate in all the land. This hot chocolate recipe is brewed in the slow cooker and is thick, creamy and decadent. I only make it once a year…on 1st December!
6 cups of milk
2 cups of double cream
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
226g semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to the slow cooker and whisk well.
Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 hours.
Whisk every 45 minutes so that the chocolate doesn’t burn on the bottom.
Easy peasy. So if you love hot chocolate then give it a go! You could even make a white hot chocolate using white hot chocolate powder and white chocolate instead!
Love, Loz x
