Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate has the perfect mix of sweet and salty in one deliciously comforting drink!
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.
Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
- 1 (14 ocan sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 6 cups milk
- 2 cups chocolate chips milk or semi-sweet, we used milk
- 1/2 cup caramel sauce
- 1-2 tsp sea salt
- In a 5-6 qt crock pot pour all ingredients.
- Stir to combine.
- Cook on low for 2-3 hours until chocolate chips are melted and it is warm.
- Stir every so often to prevent the chocolate chips from sticking to bottom.
- Pour into mugs and top with whip cream or marshmallows and a drizzle of caramel sauce if desired.
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!

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.
I am too that’s why I couldn’t help but dedicate a whole week to salted caramel!! Thank you for picking my hot chocolate to be featured, what an honor 🙂
I feel like the way the house would smell with this in the slow cooker would be as good as the taste.
Thanks Melissa I think the smell of melted chocolate over taking my house is the perfect example of an amazing day.
This looks INCREDIBLE! We are going to have to try this one soon! #SmallVictories

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.
Run, get slow cooker now! Seriously I’d be lost without mine. This was great and loved by everyone. Hope you get your hands on a slow cooker and try it.

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!
That sounds so fun. And adding caramel is always amazing.
