Christmas treats

I had a holiday cookie exchange yesterday with some friends! So much fun! I love getting new recipes and treats and trying them out at the same time. Then you know what they should taste and look like. :)

Here's a yummy hot chocolate recipe I wanted to share! It makes a ton! And takes a few hours to get good and warm. Perfect for winter break and snow days. Make it mid morning, let the kids go out in the snow after lunch and it will be good and hot when they come in!!


  • 1.5 cups whipping cream
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips (milk chocolate OR semi-sweet depending on how sweet you like it. I have a heck of a sweet tooth, and I love the milk chocolate, but others prefer the semi-sweet)
  1. Stir together the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips in a crockpot.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted. Stir again before serving. Garnish as desired.
