DIY Chai Hot Chocolate

Slow Cooker Chai Hot Chocolate is a spiced chai tea recipe that can be made in the crockpot. It is a great way to make a warm, cozy drink for those cold winter nights. This would be an awesome treat for your Mum on Mother's Day or for yourself!

This Slow Cooker Chai Hot Chocolate is not your average hot cocoa recipe. The ingredients are all spices, herbs, and essential oils, which gives it an exotic flavor that is perfect for chilly days and nights. It's also easy to make and can be made with or without alcohol.

This recipe uses the slow cooker to cook the spices and herbs so that they infuse into the chocolate when it cooks in the crockpot.
