Ultra rich, creamy, decadent VEGAN crockpot (or slow cooker) hot chocolate is a definite crowd pleaser. With real chocolate, cocoa, thick coconut milk and sweetened condensed coconut milk- this recipe is no fail, delicious hot chocolate. Just in time for Christmas!

The idea of making crockpot or slow cooker hot chocolate is one that makes me so happy! You get to dump all the ingredients in, set it to low and walk away for 4 hours.

But the best part? You get the smell of warm chocolate with a hint of vanilla wafting through your house while it’s cooking. 

What a great addition to a family gathering or Christmas party!

We tested this recipe on kids and adults, vegans and meat/dairy eaters. It got one hell of a thumbs up from everyone ?

The sweetened condensed coconut milk adds a whole other level to this recipe. As does the real chocolate chips! 

The chocolate chips at Costco are accidentally vegan, in case you were wondering.

HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN CROCKPOT HOT CHOCOLATE?

Start by mixing the cocoa powder and 1 cup of the almond milk in a small bowl until smooth. 

Add everything, including the cocoa mixture, into your crockpot or slow cooker. Set to low and cook for 4 hours.

There are two types of people in this world-

Those that open the crockpot lid while something is cooking.

Those that do not.

I am an opener, regardless of what the recipe calls for, I’ll admit it. I LOVE to open the lid, stir it and see what’s up in there.

So, for this recipe, I stirred it. A little. Okay, maybe a lot. It’s so tempting!! And it smells so damn good.

If you are an opener, you’re in luck. You kind of have to stir this recipe once in a while, to keep the chocolate chips from coating the bottom. 

Stir occasionally while it cooks on low for 4 hours.

When it’s done, give it a really good whisk. Serve with vegan marshmallows, vegan whip cream, cinnamon, whatever you feel like!
