  • 4 cups milk (you can also use condensed milk or whole milk, if preferred)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (you can also use white chocolate or 1/4 cup cocoa powder, if preferred) 
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup Rumchata (feel free to add more!)
  • 1.4 cup granulated sugar (optional.  it still tastes great, in my opinion, without) 
  • Toppings: whipped cream, marshmallows, ground cinnamon, toffee bits, peppermint bits, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and more!



  • In a large saucepan on medium, heat milk, chocolate chips and cocoa. Stir well. Once milk has warmed, remove from stove and add in vanilla and rumchata. Served with all your favorite toppings.


  • Add all ingredients to your slow cooker with the exception of toppings. Whisk together until well combined. Cook on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until chocolate chips are melted. Using a ladle, pour into coffee mugs. Served with all your favorite toppings.
