I made this on Christmas Eve for the kids. I used 4 12 oz cans of evaporated milk (6 cups) and 6 cups of water in place of the whole milk. Once it was ready I kept it warm in a crockpot. Perfect!!

Yummy! I didn't bother heating milk in the microwave, just dumped in the pot and stirred until hot. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This is very good! I had a craving for some hot cocoa and found this recipe. I reduced it to 1 serving, kept true to the recipe, and it worked wonderfully! :) Thank you for posting. ~Buddha

Went over very well at my Book Club meeting. I used your recipe and added a couple things to make it extra rich (though it didn't need it- it was yummy as is- I just wanted to make it extra-indulgent). I added a pint of light whipping cream, 5 oz chopped chocolate, and a packet of cook and serve chocolate pudding. Thanks for a great recipe- there wasn't a drop left after the meeting!

I gave this 5 stars. My family loves this hot cocoa. The copy I got from Hershey's website is slightly different. The copy I have calls for 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup cocoa, dash salt, 1/3 cup hot water, 4 cups milk, and 3/4 Tsp vanilla. The directions are almost the same.After stirring in the sugar, cocoa and salt, stir in the water and cook on medium heat until boiling. Boil and stir 2 minutes and add milk then stir. Remove from heat stir in vanilla. Beat until foamy and serve. I did not beat the hot cocoa I just stirred it and served it. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
