Step 1: Mix All Your Ingredients in Your Slow Cooker
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (~2 cups)
1 carton of cream (16oz)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz)
6 cups of milk (I used 2% because that is what we drink)
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
Mix everything together in the slow cooker.
Alternatively you can use whatever your favorite hot chocolate recipe is and mix it all in the slow cooker. Subbing your favorite type of chocolate in for the semisweet chips is also a way to mix it up (white chocolate chips also make a very yummy hot chocolate).
Step 2: Let the Slow Cooker Do Its Thing
I whisked the mixture after about 1 hour and then 1.5 hours in. After 2 hours I whisked again to make sure all was incorporated, after 2 hrs all the chocolate should have melted and it should be a delicious hot chocolate.

People can ladle hot chocolate into cups and mix with all the extras!
I forgot to take a picture before I went and there wasn't any left afterwards to take a picture of!
