Crock Pot Hot Chocolate Recipe

Sometimes it’s completely necessary to gather a couple friends and cozy up for some hot chocolate and great company. In Nebraska you often hear, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes.” This winter has proven to be no different; one day we’re hit with snow, and the next day it’s 60 degrees. To make the most of the cold front that swept through this weekend, I teamed up with my dear friend Jordan Brunmeier to throw a vintage-inspired hot chocolate party.

The fixings included cinnamon sticks, crushed peppermint, marshmallows, chocolate chips and Hershey’s kisses. These wooden spoons made perfect stir sticks.

An authentic letterpress tray and vintage crates set the foundation for the hot chocolate bar. A variety of glassware was used to add classic appeal while mixing old with new.
