Crockpot Lavender Rose Cocoa

I originally made this as a Valentine cocoa, but romance shouldn’t be limited to just one day. Surprise your someone special with the yummy dessert cocoa. The lavender and rose flavors blend together to form its own taste that’s not as floral as you think.

I used lavender extract which I got at Savory Spice Shop, but if you can’t find any you could fill a muslin tea bag or tea ball with 1 to 2 teaspoons of culinary lavender and add this at the beginning of cooking. This will infuse the milk with a great lavender flavor too.

I do use real sugar in this recipe, because it helps to thicken it up. The longer you cook it the thicker it will be. You can substitute stevia or agave, but the hot chocolate will be thinner.

Slow Cooker Lavender Rose Cocoa
soy-free, gluten-free
Serves 2 to 3

**Uses a 1 1/2 to 2 quart slow cooker**

  • 3 cups unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk, or other non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 ounces semisweet baking chocolate, in disks or chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon lavender extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosewater

Add all the ingredients and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours or on high for 1 to 1 1/2 hour.

Stir once or twice during this time with a whisk to help the chocolate mix in well. Whisk a final time and serve.

    Kathy! I just look at your beautiful photography and read your recipe and I can almost smell and taste just how wonderful it is! I can not wait to try it!

  2. Very cool (or should I say hot!) Kathy. The combination of chocolate and lavender reminds me of a dessert I had a farm-to-table restaurant in Portland, OR last summer; chocolate mousse with lavender shortbread. At first I wasn’t too excited about it (it was part of a prefix menu and not something I chose) but once I had it in front of me, I was so glad it was all mine!

  3. I agree, your photos are so pretty! I have never had lavender and chocolate together, but it sounds fabulous! I just got some culinary lavender, so I may need to try using a tea ball to infuse the hot chocolate.

  4. OMG that looks soooooooo gooood!! Even on a hot, tropical summer’s day like today I’m craving it. The pictures are so very tempting!!
