35 pretzel sticks

In a large saucepan, combine the cocoa, milk and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat. Gradually add water; cook and stir until heated through. Stir in vanilla. Top each serving with a marshmallow snowman if desired.
To make snowman garnish, connect two marshmallows with a pretzel stick in the middle to form the lower body. Push a pretzel into the top of the body and secure another marshmallow into the pretzel stick to form the head. Try to tilt the head at an angle as shown in picture. Decorate face with icing and a candy corn for the nose.
