Crock Pot Cocoa

It's been cooler and drizzling rain here, so it's got me thinking of fall recipes. Here's a great drink recipe for a cool day.

Crock Pot Cocoa

3 1/2 C non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 C sugar (or Splenda?)
1/2 C unsweetened cocoa
6 C water
1 tsp. vanilla

In a 3 1/2-6 qt. crock pot, combine milk, sugar and cocoa powder. Add water and vanilla; stir well to dissolve. Cover; cook on low for 3 to 4 hrs. or on high for 1 to 1 1/2 hrs.

Before serving, carefully beat cocoa w/ mixer to make it frothy. Can also top w/ cinnamon or marshmallows. Makes 9 (6 oz.) servings.

I will be at DiningwithDebbie for Crock Pot Wednesday today!
