Hot Chocolate

Makes about ten cups

8 cups 2-percent milk
2½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1 cup cocoa powder
5 cups bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2½ cups unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 cups cream

Bring half of the milk to a boil with the sugar, vanilla, salt, and cocoa powder. Melt the chocolates together. Pour the chocolate into the liquid while whisking. Use a hand mixer to make it smooth. Whisk in the rest of the milk and the cream. Serve immediately or save in a cooler and reheat.
