How does Disney make their Hot Cocoa?

If you are anything like me, you love everything Disney.  

When I go out to Disneyland, I love to just take everything in.  From the little details and hidden Mickeys around the park, to the AMAZING treats found scattered around the park.  I managed to track down the recipe for the Hot Cocoa that is served at different locations around the Disney Properties.  

I will continue to post Disney recipes as I find them.
