I know this week has been all about Guinness, but I had to switch it up for this week’s beverage post. Why on earth would I do that? Well, Guinness is terrific in stew and brownies, but I really wanted to try another hot drink. I just couldn’t find a hot drink made with Guinness, and I’m not sure I want to try one. Hot beer seems wrong. So here we are with hot cocoa spiked with coffee liqueur and made in a slow cooker. Sounds good to me!
Slow cooker Kahlua hot cocoa warms you up in more ways than one! Add some marshmallows to this hot chocolate and you’re all set for chilly winter nights or holiday parties! This is going to become your favorite winter cocktail / dessert combination!
Like the brownies I made earlier this week, this cocoa recipe has only 5 ingredients. I don’t know about you, but I love that! I had to shop for the milk and half and half, but I had the rest of the ingredients on hand. Yes, even the mini chocolate chips, leftovers from the chocolate tiramisu I made last month. How perfect is that?
This recipe couldn’t have been any easier. Just throw all the ingredients except the Kahlua into the crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours. Switch to warm (unless your crockpot does that automatically), add the Kahlua and stir. I had the best hot cocoa I’ve ever tried ready in 2 hours 2 minutes, including garnishing with marshmallows.
