"Hot Chocolate" is a song from the 2004 film, The Polar Express performed by Tom Hanks (as the Conductor with the waiters as backup singers). Being the first musical number in the film, the song is about its namesake beverage and how the sole rule regarding it is to "never, ever let it cool." The Conductor and waiters sing it while serving hot chocolate to the children onboard the train and dancing.

The song plays again during the credits after "When Christmas Comes to Town" and before "Spirit of the Season" and is featured on the film's official soundtrack.
