  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup malted milk powder optional


  • In a 4 quart slow cooker, mix the cocoa and hot water together and stir until smooth.  This helps prevent the cocoa from becoming lumpy.
  • Add the sugar, salt, vanilla and milk (optional malted milk powder) and stir to combine.
  • Heat on high for one hour and then turn down to low or warm while serving.
