Crockpot Hot Chocolate Bar - treat your guests or your children during the cold holidays which are just around the corner

Crockpot Hot Chocolate Bar
After a day of shopping, or when friends gather during the holidays, set up a Hot Chocolate Bar and let everyone create their own drink. The condiments vary - children or adults, daytime or evening etc. Nothing warms your soul, spirits, and hands like a warm cup of hot chocolate. . . and I don't mean those flavored mixes to which you add water, I'm talking about the real thing and this is one rich and creamy version.  

1-1/2 cups of heavy cream
1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups of bittersweet chocolate chips
6 cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Add all of the above ingredients to a crockpot a few hours before guests arrive. Provide a ladle and mugs and let them serve themselves. Allow your guests to select their own final touches such as: marshmallows, marshmallow cream, whipped cream, peppermint sticks, marshmallow lollipops, crushed toffee bars, liqueurs such as chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, peppermint, or butter-rum, cinnamon, chocolate shavings, syrups such as hazelnut, vanilla, raspberry, peppermint or praline, chocolate spoons, cinammon sticks, or hard rock candy swizzle sticks. Use your imagination!
