We don’t have a fancy back porch, but we do have a large covered area, a nice table and chairs, and a chiminea that has housed many fall and winter fires.
One of our favorite things to do is have people over for the aforementioned porch parties. We grill, or bring snacks, light a fire and stay up way too late talking and laughing loudly.
I saw this recipe for slow cooker hot chocolate and know it’ll be a welcome addition to cold nights on the back porch.
Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate
5 cups milk
1/2 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup hot water
Combine cocoa, sugar and hot water in a large pan. Stir and bring to a gentle boil. Transfer mixture to slow cooker and add milk. Stir, then cook on high for 2 hours (or low for 4 hours), or until hot. Pour into mugs then top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
