Eggnog Hot Chocolate Recipe- double the batch and make in the crockpot for parties!

If you know me at all you know that between October through February you will most likely see me carrying a mug of coffee. Coffee mugs are permanently attached to my hand for the duration of winter. But here’s the sad truth… I’m getting old and can’t drink caffeine long into the evenings like I used to. No worries!! Eggnog Hot Chocolate to the rescue!
Eggnog Hot Chocolate Recipe- warm and creamy with white chocolate!

What can I say? I like a frilly, festive, holiday drink. Sure some days I open an envelope of chocolate powder and stir it into hot milk, but homemade hot chocolate is SO easy. In fact I love entertaining with this Eggnog Hot Chocolate by doubling the recipe and putting the ingredients in the slow cooker before my guests arrive. It tastes delicious, requires almost zero effort, and makes your home smell AMAZING.

I like to top it with frothed milk, nutmeg, and sometimes a few white chocolate shavings. You know I love working with the American Dairy Association Mideast around the holidays.

Together we are working with The Great American Milk Drive again this year to provide gallons of milk for families in your local community. Milk is the MOST requested item at food pantries, but the LEAST donated? I know I’m guilty of raiding my cupboard for a few cans of beans and soup when our school asks for food bank donations.

But this year I would really challenge all of us to ask what we would really like provided to us if we were on the other end and needing help. I can tell you personally our family spent time needing assistance and I was so happy to have coupons for milk that my toddler needed.

So I’m sharing the recipe for this Eggnog Hot Chocolate- I hope you love it. If you want to know an easy way to help your local food bank please scroll down. Thank you so much!

Ingredients:
