1 1/2 cup sugar 1 1/4 cup cocoa powder 1 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup hot water 1 gallon milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In large saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa and salt. Add hot water slowly, mixing well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil and stir 2 minutes. Add milk; heat to serving temperature, stirring occasionally. DO NOT boil.
Remove from heat; add vanilla, cinnamon, and whip with a whisk. Serve hot, with whipped cream or marshmallows if desired. This recipe can be doubled and kept in crockpot for easier serving to large groups.
Made this for our elementary school's rummage sale last weekend and everyone really liked it. I had it sitting in three crock pots to keep it warm.

Served to family after being in the cold hanging Christmas lights. They are huge fans of "coffee shop" hot cocoas...but not anymore. My son said "let's not get hot chocolate at the store anymore Mom. I want this instead all the time". Big compliment to the recipe. Gone before it had a chance to cool!

Great! Quick, easy, nice (but not overpowering) cinnamon taste. Made it for a big party and offered guests mini marshmallows and candy canes and whipped cream to garnish - huge hit.
