Make those holiday drinks the easy way in the crockpot! This chai-spiced white hot chocolate is a breeze to throw together and so cozy for winter sipping!
DANG, guys! And just like that the first semester is over.
Yesterday was my last day of finals (thank the LORD!) and now begins the five weeks of break! Time seriously flies, whoa. The past few months have been awesome, and I’m currently working on a recap of of it all. Stay tuned, yo!
So question: what in the world am I even going to do with myself now for over a month?? Oh, right. Maybe chip away at that mile-long to-do list that mostly consists of food I wanna make before I’m 30, things I want to share with you on the blog, and eating as many cookies as humanely possible.
Just the basic stuff, guys. If you’re in the neighborhood feel free to drop by. I’ll probably feed you. 😉
If you’re lucky I might even have batch #5 of white hot chocolate happily cooking away in the crockpot for your winter sipping delight. It’s entirely possible. ♥
Question: on a scale of one to ten, how would you rate my obsession with white chocolate recently? I would probably give it a twelve, because uh, seriously? Have you even spent 5 minutes on my blog?
It’s kinda ridiculous but totally in the most glorious white chocolate-iest way possible. ???
And no amount of heart-eyed emojiis could even explain how glorious this hot chocolate is.
Why? Because chai spice met white hot chocolate. And the two clearly belong together forever in their home called Mr. Crockpot.
Let’s discuss the prep involved in this white hot chocolate. Um, there is basically NONE! Throw everything in the crockpot and go hang out with those holiday guests! Observe. —>
- Make the chai spice mix. Simple, simple, simple!
- Throw everything else in the crockpot and then stir in the chai spice.
- Let ‘er cook itself a few hours and FORGET about it! Then remember you have some sipping to do and break out the whipped cream and grab your prettiest glass mugs!
This white hot chocolate is kinda like winter hugs in a glass if we want to get technical here.
And let’s be honest here: we ALL want to experience hugs like that. Smother me with your piping-hot, extra-cozy chai-flavored white chocolate-y goodness, puh-leeeeeeeze and thanks.
So many heck, yeaaaaaaahs I think I’m hearing right now. 😉
Shall we go sipping now and pretend it’s actually winter? (cause uh, the weather is seriously backwards here.)
I’m so doing it. 😀

Hooray for finals being over! I bet that’s a great feeling! And this hot chocolate looks amazing. I love chai lattes, so the combination of chai with white chocolate sounds SO good! Love that this is made in the crock pot, too!
Yes, it’s definitely an awesome feeling! Thanks for the kind words, Gayle! xoxo
Mel @ The Refreshanista says
Oh WOW this looks good! It’s definitely winter up here in Canada and this looks like the perfect drink to cozy up with by the fireplace when I’m done exams (tomorrow!).
Good luck with your exams, Mel!! You’ll do awesome, I know it!

Looks so good, Sarah! I need a warm drink this morning.
Thank you, girly! xoxo 🙂
So easy to make, festive and delicious! Love the photos, pinned!
Thanks for pinning as always Mira! 🙂
I’ve had white hot chocolate before, but never with chai spices! This sounds so good. And I love that you can make it in a crockpot!
The chai spice is such a fun and different twist! You must try it, Amanda!
Rachel @ Bakerita says
Sarah, congrats on your first semester! I’m sure you killed your finals 🙂 this hot chocolate is EVERYTHING. I absolutely need to make this!!
Aww thank you Rachel! You’re so awesome! 😉 You totally need to try this white hot choc!
Yay for finals! Hope you enjoy your break too, Sarah. After a semester of school it’s always much needed. I’m also thinking this white hot chocolate needs to happen soon! That chai spice mix sounds like such a great addition to it too!
Thank you Danielle! I’m definitely looking forward to some chill time that’s for sure! 😉
Congrats on finishing up your first trimester and finals! This white hot chocolate looks so spicy and amazing, and perfect that it’s made in a slow cooker! Note: I have its dark chocolate peppermint cousin posting tomorrow. 🙂
No way, girl! Our recipes are always SO in sync with each other and I kinda love that! LOL. 😉
Thankyou so much for this recipe! I can’t wait to make it! Question – what do you do if there are (gasp) leftovers – can you refrigerate them? I’d hate to waste it but this seems like a make every weekend type of drink that my daughter and I would enjoy!
Hi Sandy! Yes, any leftovers would keep fine in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
Mary Stiefel-Smith says
Delicious! Could not have been easier! Everyone loved it!
So glad to hear that, Mary! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
Great choccy recipe!
I’m now gonna try to make it before my GF gets home (I’m in the dog house for forgetting our anniversary!!!) This is her favorite so hopefully it will do the trick.
Keep up the great work!
This is BEYOND delicious! So easy to put together and then just sit back and wait for the magic! I almost always double the recipe if there are more than 2 of us…and if you have some left, I like to put some in my coffee the next morning instead of my normal creamer…so good!
Love the sound of using this white hot chocolate as coffee creamer! Such a good idea. 🙂
