I love hot chocolate. I always have. Something about it just warms me up – and not just the fact that it’s hot. It can take a hard day and turn it around for me. But I am picky. I’m not one for those flavored hot chocolates. We were at IHOP last week for Princess C’s birthday dinner, and I ordered one of their new caramel hot chocolates. I thought, caramel and hot chocolate would be perfect together, but I didn’t much care for it. Mark thoroughly enjoyed it though. I’ve decided it’s really just a taste preference. I prefer my hot chocolate to be thick and creamy.
Well, I’ve been stumbling across a bunch of hot chocolates on pinterest lately. Even though our winter has been more like spring this year, I still wanted some good old hot cocoa to chase away the dreary undecided weather (seriously, it needs to make up it’s mind!). So today I hit up the local grocery store for some chocolate chips and made this fabulous Crock Pot Hot Chocolate from Real Mom Kitchen.
