Recipe Notes

Non-Stick Note: To make clean up easier you may wish to either line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Topping Note: This recipe may be topped with additional semi-sweet chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows (as pictured) right before serving. However, the nutritional information has been calculated without these two optional ingredients. If you are counting calories and other nutritional information you will need to take into account the additions if you decide to use them.

Gluten Free Note: We have marked this recipe as being Gluten-Free because the brands of steel cut oats and hot chocolate mix we used are gluten-free. That being said, if you are on a gluten-free diet it is always a good idea to read all labels of the ingredients you use to make sure that they are indeed gluten-free and meet your dietary needs.
