WW Recipe of the Day: Crock Pot Caramel Hot Cocoa
(177 calories | 6 6 6 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
The season for indulging in hot cocoa is short here in Phoenix.
So, when the temperatures dipped into the 30s and 40s for several days recently, I took the opportunity to make a small batch of caramel crock pot hot cocoa.
The secret ingredient?
A little bit of caramel filled milk chocolate, which I just happened to have tucked away in the pantry, stirred in just before serving.
Surprisingly rich, sweet and creamy, considering it's made with dry nonfat milk powder, this crock pot hot cocoa was the perfect way to take off the chill while indulging my sweet tooth.
