This Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is a delicious party drink that you and your guests will love.
A few years ago I published a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Lattes for a crowd, it’s been my most popular winter and fall recipe for 4 years! I believe it was in the comment section on Facebook where someone suggested doing hot chocolate instead of coffee. I had to try it! I am such a huge fan of pumpkin spice that I had my friends over for a pumpkin spice party, I am kicking myself that I didn’t make this! We all made pumpkin spice desserts!
I use whole milk for the base and then add chocolate chips, cocoa powder, vanilla, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. In the recipe card below I also give directions for the spices if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice.
This is a full pot of hot chocolate, I suggest making this at the party location and not trying to travel with it.
You can top this recipe with marshmallows or whipped cream or give your guests a choice of both. I hope you enjoy this recipe. I can’t get enough pumpkin spice recipes, I don’t know about you. Have a great week.
- 24 oz. milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 gallon whole milk
- 6 quart or larger
Add everything to the slow cooker, stir.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 2.5 hours. Stirring occasionally.
Serve topped with whipped cream or marshmallows.
If you can't find pumpkin pie spice I would personally start with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and a dash of cloves. After the cocoa has heated, taste and add more of what you think it needs.
This is a full pot of hot chocolate, it would be hard to travel with all made up. I suggest making this at your party location. You can heat up the milk in the microwave a bit in a glass container to speed up the process.
