It’s hard to believe, but we had our first snow of the year and it was only January 3rd!!!
It was a chance, but that chance turned into some beautiful winter weather.
We made ourselves cozy inside with some good food, books, and time together. I puttered around in the kitchen most of the day… but did stop to fold the mountain of laundry with Carlie as we watched some shows together. It’s a fun way to pass the time of laundry!
As Eli headed to work, he called me letting me know that there was a problem! We had a tree down over the road. So he and Abe went and removed the tree so he could go to work and Abe could go hunt!
I knew everyone was cold and after Shannon and Abe being out in the weather Carlie suggested we make a pot of hot chocolate.
I gathered the ingredients and pulled out the crockpot.
This is what I used
Crockpot Hot Chocolate
6 cups milk
2 cups cream
(or, like I used 8 cups of whole milk)
1-2 cups of sugar or sweetener of choice and depending on how sweet you like it
1 can of sweetened condensed milk or you could use 1 cup sugar and 1 can sweetened cond. milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups chocolate chips
(we did a mix of milk and semi sweet)
Whisk all ingredients and cook on low stirring occasionally til it is all warmed through and the chocolate is melted.
Usually takes about 2 hours…
DO NOT turn on hot and walk away too long… it can scorch the milk.
