  • 2 cups semi sweet OR milk chocolate chips see note
  • ½ cup caramels unwrapped
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt (for regular non-salted caramel hot chocolate, leave this out)
  • optional: whipping cream, caramel sauce (like caramel ice cream topping)


  • Add chocolate chips, caramels, milk, heavy cream, and vanilla to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours.
  • Stir the hot chocolate. If the chocolate chips or caramels are not completely melted, cover and allow to cook for 20-30 minutes longer. When ready to serve, stir in the sea salt. Serve hot with whipped cream and additional caramel sauce if desired.


Chocolate: milk chocolate chips will yield a much richer flavor - I like to use a combination of both!
