Happy Monday and Happy New Year’s Eve! Can you believe it’s the last day of 2018?
Despite the fact that this New Year’s Eve happens to be unusually warm compared to most years, we’re always in the mood for warm drinks during wintertime. These two recipes in particular are perfect for New Year’s Eve parties, Christmas gatherings, or just a Friday night in. 🙂 Add booze for a little extra warmth, or keep it non-alcoholic for a family-friendly beverage. Get your crockpot out and dive in to these delicious and cozy recipes:

First up is Glogg, a Scandinavian warm mulled wine. Think hot cider, but more berry-y. This is a family-favorite for our Christmas Eve gathering. You will need:
First, pour your two bottles of Glogg into the crockpot.
Then add one cup of the Onos juice.
Add in your cup (give or take) of Vodka.
Then mix in your two bottles of water and turn the crockpot on to a low setting for a few hours.
That’s it! It’s like a cozy, delicious, hot sangria…and who could say no to that?
Our next recipe is for hot chocolate with Baileys…perfect for a cozy night on the couch or a post-ice skating, skiing or sledding drink. This recipe is courtesy of themagicalslowcooker.com.
You will need:
2 (4-oz.) pkgs. Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
6 cups whole milk
1 cup Baileys® Irish Cream
- Break up the chocolate squares and add the slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients (except the Baileys).
- Cover and cook on HIGH for 1.5 hours stirring every 30 minutes.
- After the cocoa is hot, stir in the Baileys Irish Cream. Set the slow cooker to warm for serving.
- Serve with marshmallows or whipped cream.
Voila! These recipes are the epitome of crockpot simplicity.
