This Crockpot Nutella Hot Chocolate only takes 5 minutes to prep and 2 hours to cook! It’s the easiest recipe you’ll ever make and is full of nutella!
First of all – you guys know I’m obsessed with my crockpot. I haven’t given you guys a dessert/drink crockpot recipe, so I thought it was about that time! I’m sorry to keep you waiting for so long. 😉

Secondly – Nutella. ‘Nough said.
Lastly – it’s winter. Hot chocolate is necessary.
This crockpot nutella hot chocolate was actually a last minute decision. I was working at my computer, f.r.e.e.z.i.n.g. – shocker, I know and I’d already had three mugs of tea. A girl can only drink so much tea, you know? It was late, so I didn’t want coffee … so I decided to whip up a quick batch of hot chocolate.
I threw all my ingredients into my crockpot and let it cook on low for about 2 hours – which was perfect, because while it cooked I had to venture outside and go to my PureBarre class < — obsessed and run to the grocery store.
By the time I came back, I was even more freezing than before, but this time, I had crockpot nutella hot chocolate waiting for me.
Trevor, Teddy, and I snuggled up on the couch, watched While You Were Sleeping, and sipped on our hot chocolate. Ahhh. It was great. ♡
Now. Reasons why this crockpot nutella hot chocolate > all other hot chocolate.
Before I tell you, though, I have a confession. My favorite hot chocolate comes from a gas station. 😱
Did I really just say that? “Casey’s General Store” , I kid you not, has the best hot chocolate. When Trevor and I were living at our loft in Cedar Rapids, we lived right around the corner from a Casey’s and Trevor would often surprise me with a cup after work during the winter months. #keeper
Ever since, I’ve been a HUGE hot chocolate snob, so I was very pleasantly surprised when I finally made a homemade hot chocolate recipe that could stand up to my beloved gas station hot chocolate.
Everyone has their guilty pleasures…right? 😉
But back to it: Reasons why crockpot nutella hot chocolate > all other hot chocolate (even the gas station kind).
Reason #1: It’s literally the easiest thing you’ll ever make.
- Spray crockpot with cooking spray.
- Whisk in ingredients: skim milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, nutella, cocoa powder, and salt.
- Cook on low until warm.
- Drink your weight in hot cocoa. Btw – Hot chocolate or hot cocoa? I typically call it hot chocolate.
Reason #2: The crockpot somehow magically keeps it at the perfect temperature. Once it’s finished “cooking” the warm setting keeps the hot chocolate at the best sippable temperature.
Reason #3: Nutella. Need I say more?
Reason #4: It makes a TON! Perfect for a party, or maybe for the kids after they’ve had their fun in the snow? ⛄
Reason #5: It just tastes amazing. It’s rich – but not too rich, it’s creamy, it’s chocolate-y, and of course, it’s nutella-y.
Make this crockpot nutella hot chocolate and all your wintery blues will go away.
