Crock-Pot Hot Chocolate

I feel weird writing this post because it is currently 70 degrees in Vegas (yes, it’s January—it still blows my mind), but I wanted to share this recipe for Crock-Pot hot chocolate. It’s a cozy Valentine’s Day treat, especially when paired with these strawberry heart-shaped marshmallows and a cute mug (both found at Target). My boyfriend’s mom (update: my mother-in-law) made this delicious hot chocolate while we were visiting them in Wyoming for Christmas. She had it waiting for us when we got back from snowmobiling and it was much appreciated! After freezing on the mountain, it felt amazing to put on fleece sweats, sit by the fire and sip on this rich hot chocolate while watching the snow fall outside. I have learned that my favorite part of outdoor winter sports is warming up with a warm drink in the lodge afterwards—preferably spiked with Baileys or peppermint schnapps :)
