Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

Merry Christmas! We really enjoyed this super easy hot chocolate.  It was so easy to put together and I had everything on hand.  I've made a few white hot chocolate recipes in the crock pot before but never a "regular" one. This was nice, thick and rich.  It was a little too sweet, so I think I'd cut the sugar next time.  Maybe in half.  But one could always use half the sugar, then taste an hour before serving, and add more if needed.  We had leftovers and it was good the next day (just refrigerate and heat up later).

adapted from Delish

1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (just use a regular-sized bag- can use milk choc. but don't add sugar)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar (try cutting in half, then tasting after cooking for a while)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
6 cups milk (I used 2%)

1.  Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Stir to combine.  Cook until everything is melted, stirring or whisking occasionally, 2 hours on LOW.
