Cocoa, how long is it good for?
Mrs. Sweetser
We are serving a large hot cocoa bar at our church on Christmas Eve. We are estimating between 150 people will partake each service so about 300 in total.

We have the large Cambros and I plan to streamline the process and mix the hot cocoa ahead of time so we can just pour it straight and serve.

So here's my long will the hot cocoa stay "good"? We're using large packages of pre-made mix with water. I want to know how long I can make it in advance so that I'm not scrambling at the last minute. BUT, I don't want anyone to get sick. Please help!

In a fully preheated cambro, the temp will hold for 6 hours, no problem.
