Crockpot Hot Chocolate with Cool Whip Toppers

Silky smooth, rich hot chocolate is easier than you think. Ditch the packets, and get out your slow cooker. This version cooks all by itself and is ready to be served & enjoyed with hardly any effort at all. The creamy cool whip toppers are even better than traditional marshmallows and give it a velvety smooth finish.

To Make The Crockpot Hot Chocolate
