    It might, as milk doesn't take too long to scald once it is exposed to heat over a certain temperature. Are you using real milk, sugar and cocoa powder or water and pre-sweetened mix to make the hot chocolate? What kind of a coffee maker is it besides "big"? Is it electric, stove top, etc.?

    Another idea instead of the big coffee maker is to make the hot chocolate and keep it hot in a crock pot.

      ^ this. We used to have yard sales and in the morning, we'd sell hot chocolate. A crockpot always worked out best. We'd get it going on the hot setting, then turn it down to low/warm and it would keep the milk from scalding, and keep it from getting so hot it burned mouths.

    If your crockpot is large enough I would use that. The coffee pot might work depend on how long the chocolate is in it.
