There is a sugary hot chocolate recipe floating around Pinterest made in the crock pot with sweetened condensed milk, powdered sugar, and chocolate chips. It is convenient and looks delicious.

 

Sugar-Free Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

 

I decided that sugar-free people shouldn’t have to go without the best hot chocolate (especially at Christmas time!), so I set out to re-create that recipe in a healthier manner—and without sugar and/or many carbohydrates. And it worked!

 

The first version (and the one on the pinnable meme) is one in which you simply put everything in the crock pot and stir. Easy peasy. I have essentially taken the recipe for my homemade sweetened condensed milk and put those ingredients directly into the crock pot without making the “Eagle Brand” separately. The second version is the one in which you first make the sugar-free sweetened condensed milk then add it to the crock with the other ingredients.

 

My recipe testing assistant and I made them side-by-side, and to be honest, there was hardly a difference between the two. I am a short-cut queen, and I doubt that I will ever make option two again—the easier recipe is great, so there’s no reason for extra work!

 

That said, I am putting both of the recipes here in case you want to try the side-by-side test!

Make a double batch for your Christmas Eve!

 

Sugar-Free Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

 

 

This is the even simpler version of the crock pot hot cocoa! Side-by-side, there was only a small difference in creaminess between the recipe with the homemade “Eagle Brand” and this one in which the ingredients for the “Eagle Brand” are just added to the crock with the other ingredients. Take your pick!
