I meant to post this recipe a few days ago because its what I’ve been CHUGGING…trying to get rid this cold (and subsequent man voice.)

Did you know that Portland got me hooked onto juicing? That city certainly knows their health food.

That city also knows their pie. I’m talkin’ about you, Tilt. But I digress.

There are lots of little juice bars and health food stores in and around the downtown area that made amazing concoctions, but when it came to recreating them at home, my husband was and continues to be the real professional at juicing. But since he’s gone until June, mama had to take the reins.

I’ve been a little enamored with the idea of a crockpot hot chocolate for a few weeks now. I first heard about it from a girl at church and since then I haven’t been able to get it out of my head {….along with this %#@#& song.}

DON’T CLICK THROUGH. You’ll regret it.

Anyways, I did a little research/internet trolling and a lot of recipe testing and came up with my favorite version of a Crockpot Hot Chocolate! It’s not too creamy, too sweet or too cocoa-y. It’s balanced really well AND!! I even included my secret ingredient that takes this over the top! People will try it and be amazed that homemade hot chocolate could be this good.

You could totally make this lower in fat by using 1 or 2% milk and no half & half, buuuuuut I wouldn’t recommend it. Didn’t you know I’m giving you bellies that shake like bowls full of jelly for Christmas? You’re welcome.
