Makes about 25

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

3/4 cup hot water
1 gallon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

25 cinnamon sticks, for garnish (optional)

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 if desired, and whip with a whisk. Serve hot, with whipped cream or marshmallows, if desired. To kick the presentation up a notch, serve with a cinnamon stick in each mug.

Perfect recipe for a large group around the campfire! I made this for a family bonfire party we had for Halloween. Perfect ending to a cool, fall night! Very creamy and the hint of cinnamon adds to the perfect taste. 5 stars

I made this for a group of parents and kids for a bonfire party we had after a school trunk or treat event. This was a big hit with the kid.! Very creamy and sweet! Perfect for a fall evening around the campfire. Very easy to make! 5 stars

I made this last Christmas, and everyone loved it. We put real whipped cream on top, but even without it the drink was very good. 5 stars
