I guess there’s no hiding it. I’m pretty much obsessed with hot drinks made in the Crock Pot.

I can’t help myself. They’re so wonderfully hands-off, especially when it comes to this recipe. Pour all the ingredients in, give ‘em a stir, wait a couple of hours. Then turn your Crock Pot to low and enjoy wonderful hot drink after hot drink all day long if you want. All day! For a heckuva lot less than it costs for the same thing at Starbucks! Yay Crock Pot!

Sorry. I’m a little caffeinated. Because Crock Pot eggnog lattes? Yeah, they’re really, really addictingly delicious. Super rich, creamy, full of warming nutmeg and vanilla … (and coffee! Yay coffee!)

Thank goodness eggnog is only a December affair.

No whipped cream on these; I think they’re plenty rich without. But if you want to sneak some on top, I won’t stop you. In fact, I’ll cheer you on.

By the way, I stopped in at Starbucks to grab one of their eggnog lattes at the same time I was testing this recipe. Quality comparisons, it’s what I’m all about. This Crock Pot version is spot-on except the lattes are just a tad sweeter thanks to the 1/4 cup sugar I’ve added. If you like your lattes less sweet, consider reducing the sugar or leaving it out altogether.

Unrelated to this recipe specifically, I feel the need to point out that I’ve given in and started using “Crock Pot” in recipe titles instead of “Slow Cooker.” I know some slow cookers aren’t Crock Pots and I feel like I “slow cooker” is more … technically accurate (which is why I’ve been using that term instead of “Crock Pot” in the title). But you know what? Everyone calls it a Crock Pots! So I’m going to go with it. I’m rebelling against myself! Viva la … cooking things slow and using whatever words you want to describe them, self!

(Ahem. Less caffeine, maybe?)

Warm, rich and caffeinated – the perfect coffee drink for the holidays. Eggnog lattes just like Starbucks, but made at home right in your slow cooker.
