Whoever said “it’s too early for holiday treats in June” clearly hasn’t enjoyed hot chocolate, not too hot, extra chocolate, shaken, and not stirred. But if you’re looking to cool things down a bit and don’t have 1,200 years to practice, we have perfected some holiday recipes from our friends at Disney Cruise Line and Marceline’s Confectionery at Downtown Disney for you to enjoy with family and friends while watching along at home.
