How do you make Rumchata Hot Chocolate in the slow cooker?

To convert this recipe for your crock pot you are going to want to double (or even triple) the ingredients. Combine the milk, sugar, chocolate, and powdered cocoa in your crock pot, and heat on low for 2-3 hours, until chocolate has melted and everything is well heated through. Stir in Rumchata just before serving, and allow 10-15 minutes for the mixture to warm back up fully. This is perfect for serving to a large group (of adults, of course).
