Recipe Tips

  • It may help to heat the milk and mix with cocoa powder first before combining with the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Make sure you continue to stir the mixture as it stays on the warm setting. 
  • If adding in alcohol, wait to spike your drink until serving.
  • If you need to extend the servings a bit as it’s being served, you can add some milk to thin it out a bit and increase the number of servings. 
  • Sieve the cocoa before adding it into the Slow Cooker to reduce the chance of lumps.
  • Do break the chocolate into small pieces so that they melt quicker.
