By: Kimberly Boyd

One of my favorite things to do is to make homemade hot chocolate, curl up with a blanket, toast my toes by the fire, and settle in for a Hallmark Christmas movie with my family! Hot chocolate is the best way to relax after all the hustle and bustle from the craziness of the holidays.

However, with the upcoming holidays, there are plenty of parties and festivities. The search is always on for the best festive treats to host at your Christmas party. If you like a little spice in your drink, Christmas Wassail is the best drink to serve!

Below I have listed the best recipes for Homemade Hot Chocolate as well as Christmas Wassail. You pick! Chocolate or Spice? Everything’s Nice!

Crockpot Hot Chocolate
Ingredients
6 Cups of Milk
1 ½ cups of Heavy Cream
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 oz)
1 package of Milk Chocolate Chips (12 oz)
1 teaspoon of Vanilla

Directions
Place all ingredients in your crockpot and mix well. Cook on low for two hours, but make sure you stir frequently about every 10 minutes. Once all the chocolate chips are melted, turn your crockpot to warm. Top off your cup with mini marshmallows if you like! Enjoy!

Christmas Wassail
Ingredients:
2 quarts of Apple Cider
2 cups of Orange Juice
1 cup of Lemon Juice
5 cups of Pineapple Juice
1 ½ tsp of Whole Cloves
1 Cinnamon Stick
Sugar or Honey to taste

*I suggest a cup of sugar added but it also depends on the sweetness you prefer. Add sugar or honey slowly in and taste test as you go for your best judgement on sweetness!

*Also, one added bonus, your house will smell amazing while warming this up!

Directions
Place all ingredients in large pot or your crockpot. If using a pot, simmer for 30 minutes and remove cloves and cinnamon stick before serving. If using a crockpot, heat on low for 2 to 4 hours before serving.
