The nutrition info provided is meant to be an estimate. It is calculated via an automatic online calculator and can’t take into account the specific ingredients someone would use at home in their kitchen (eg. whole milk, 2%, 1%) or whether or not they use optional toppings such as whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and/or extra caramel sauce drizzled on top. That said, this crockpot hot chocolate recipe is certainly not health food and is meant to be enjoyed as a special treat rather than go-to daily beverage.
