As the days get chillier and our homes get toastier, the craving for a flavorful, hot drink is always present. Making individual mugs of hot drinks can be time consuming but when you have a crock pot, you can make insanely good drinks for everyone in the family very quickly. The best part is, you can have additional toppings set out beside the mugs such as sliced apples, whip cream and chocolate, depending on what the drink is.
