Here's another version of fresh hot cocoa, this time a bit healthier. I found this one at mommyx12's beautiful blog.

Healthy Fresh Hot Cocoa

10 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup of honey
1 cup hot water
8 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla

Combine the cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and honey in a large saucepan and mix well. Stir in the hot water. Heat until it just begins to boil. Quickly turn down the heat so the mixture barely simmers for about 30 seconds. Add milk to the saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat for 1-2 minutes just to heat it.
Stir in vanilla. Use a wire whisk to beat the hot chocolate until is is frothy.
