Creamy Hot Cocoa

This hot cocoa is really simple, tastes amazing, and is the perfect treat! I made this recipe later on a cold day and just threw all the ingredients in my crock pot, whisked them together, and kept on low all day. That worked out just fine and was much easier, so either way you decide will be great!

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla.
