Winter Beverage Crock Pot Recipes

Betty Crocker has an extravagant hot cocoa recipe that you can top with pretty much anything your heart desires. You will need:

* 2 quarts (or 8 cups) of milk
* 1 tablespoon of vanilla

Toppings are optional. Betty Crocker suggests whipped cream, mini marshmallows, crushed peppermints, and a whole list of other ideas.

Combine the unsweetened chocolate, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk into a 4 quart slow cooker. Mix well, and cover it. Cook on high for 30 minutes. Stir it every 10 minutes (or until the chocolate melts). Use a wire whisk, and stir in 2 cups of milk. Gradually stir in the rest of the milk and the vanilla. Cover it again, and cook on high for 2 hours.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
