Gingerbread Hot Cocoa

In our home, this is just called Hot Cocoa. I have been making it this way for so long, my kids don't really know any better. But because of the flavor, for the sake of the recipe, I have to add the Gingerbread to the title. It is so yummy, and flavorful! You can even leave out the other seasonings if you'd like some ordinary hot cocoa, and it's still just as yummy!
