- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp whole cloves
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 2 sliced oranges
Combine all ingredients into a crockpot.
Cook on High for 1.5 hours or Low for 3 hours.
Before serving, remove the whole spices and oranges
We top ours with thin apple or oranges slices, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries.

Brooklyn’s Favorite Hot Cocoa
She definitely loves her chocolate drinks!This is a great recipe for a large crowd. We have served this at very large events by tripling the recipe and using roasters.
- 6 cups whole milk You can also use lactose free
- 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips Enjoy Life is a great brand!
Combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips into a crockpot
Whisk well (until it is no longer lumpy)
Add the chocolate chips and stir well
Cook on low for 2 hours or until the chocolate chips are melted (I will stir every 45 minutes while it's cooking)
Brooklyn’s favorite toppings are: regular whip cream and sprinkles
The rest of the family uses peppermint sticks and flavored whip cream toppings.
Extra suggestion: Turn on a Christmas movie and light a fire. Enjoy!
