Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

So I’m officially dubbing this week Salted Caramel Week! This was in no way on purpose but I’m not going to complain at all. I must have been craving salted caramel because everything I made, or had actually gotten time to getting around to editing happened to be salted caramel. While there are going to be a few posts possibly that don’t fall into this category, the majority will.

We had my 2 older son’s birthday party (we do a weekend in between both their actually birthday’s) this past weekend and I felt like doing something different. I’m sick of always having the traditional pop (soda if you aren’t a Minnesotan) or punch so I made my homemade slow cooker hot chocolate! I felt like switching it up this time and decided to add some caramel…um yes. Chocolatey, caramely, salty goodness. Pretty much heaven in a mug.

The slow cooker is a great method to making this, it makes a big batch AND it constantly keeps your cocoa warm! Love it. If you aren’t a HUGE salted caramel fan like moi you can definitely leave out the salt and caramel, but would be sadly missing out. Top this with some whip cream or marshmallows and drizzle with some more caramel and you have a drink that everyone (especially the kids) will love.

  1. Oh yummy! If we can find a weekend that both my husband and I will be home this month, I was hoping to have a cookies and cocoa open house. I had slow cooker hot cocoa on the brain already, but now I must add caramel! mmmmmmmmmm!

  2. Sounds like a molten chocolate bar in a mug to me and that’s very tempting. I can guarantee all members of my family will like this. I don’t have a slow cooker, but I wish I did, as the thought of constantly warm hot chocolate to keep dipping into is just a bit tempting.

  3. Oh Forevermore! This looks to die for….I’m wild about anything salted caramel, especially if it’s warm. I love this recipe so much I’ve chosen it as my personal favorite at this week’s Weekend Potluck party. 😉 Please be sure to stop by – we’re having a giveaway this week! Hope to see you over there…enjoy a wonderful weekend.

  4. Just stopping back by from #SmallVictories to let you know you’re my featured blogger this week! Have a blessed weekend and we look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to this week.

  5. Look I FINALLY made it to pin this tasty sounding recipe – I think I’ll try to make this in a few weeks when the snow finally decides to stick around!
