Spicy Cinnamon Crockpot Hot Chocolate
Can I get a show of hands in the air if you’ve been freezing your bippy off this December already!? Personally, I love the blustery weather around the Holidays, but no doubt we need to help ourselves out to stay warm.
Enter hot chocolate. Wait make that cinnamon hot chocolate. NO WAIT, let’s do spicy cinnamon whiskey hot chocolate. Yeahhh buddy, now we’re talking. While we’re at it, let’s throw everything in the crock pot so we can officially spend more time by the fire and less by the stove. Ahhhhh, can you feel the relaxation or what?
Yes, I know, I’ve been posting more cocktail recipes than I normally do (I’ll make up for it in January, I promise) but I’m just tryin’ to be real wit ya. I’ll be making this for my family on Christmas Eve, so I want to release the recipe just in time for you to do the same. Adding the cinnamon whiskey is totally optional, you actually add it in your mug after the hot cocoa melts and melds in the crock pot, so it isn’t necessary, but it sure is tasty.
If you use Dairy Free Chocolate chips (I’ll post what I use below), this recipe is entirely dairy free, and if you decide to omit the cinnamon whiskey, entirely refined sugar-free, too!
Let’s get roasting by the open fire
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Almond or Cashew Milk
Full-Fat Coconut Milk
Cayenne Powder or to taste – optional
Cinnamon Whisky – optional
WHAT YOU’LL DO:
Add all ingredients, except the Cinnamon Whisky, into your crockpot. Turn the crockpot on low and let the chocolate chips melt, while occasionally stirring for 2 hours. After 2 hours turn the crockpot to warm; this can be left unattended and served all night!
When you’re ready to serve, pour 1 shot of cinnamon whiskey into a mug, if you desire. Fill the mug with hot cocoa, mix and top with extra cinnamon and cayenne.
