Mint Hot Chocolate in a Slow Cooker

I was given samples of Stephen's Gourmet to review in exchange for this post and giveaway. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Who doesn't love Hot Chocolate? My husband. Seriously. From the second I found out his dislike for all drinks that are hot, I have been trying to find the exception to his no hot chocolate rule, and I finally found it. Stephen's Gourmet Hot Chocolate. The Mint Truffle in particular won his vote. It is seriously the only brand he will drink. 

I have wanted to make Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate for awhile, but I wanted it to be something my husband would drink. I found the solution with this simple, easy way to make hot chocolate with Stephen's Gourmet. Recipe adapted from Stephen's Gourmet. 

You will need: 
1 cup Stephen's Gourmet Milk Hot Chocolate, 
8 cups of hot water (You might be able to replace this with milk for creamier hot chocolate)
3/4 cup chocolate syrup
2 tsp. Mint Extract (I have also seen this replaced with 1/4 c. Peanut Butter for Peanut Butter Hot chocolate)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Mint Chocolate Chips or Sprinkle
Whipped Cream

Pour the water over the cocoa mix in the crock pot. Stir until smooth. Add the chocolate syrup and stir until smooth. Cook on low for about 4 hours until piping hot. Add the mint extract and vanilla, stir well. Add to mugs, top with whipped cream and mint chocolate chips. 

We love the creamy taste of this hot chocolate and it is fun to be able to customize it with your favorite flavors. I love that even if I don't have time to make my own mint or peanut butter hot chocolate, I can still have a cup of my favorite flavors with all of Stephen's Gourmet different flavor options. Some of their flavors include, White Chocolate, Pumpkin Spice, Candy Cane, Marshmallow, Cherry Chocolate and many many more.
