Here is an interesting article and info on to make it. The writer is probably right in the article it say's they use either flour or cornstarch I guess potato flakes could also be used:

Its more like a thinish pudding than the beverage we know as hot chocolate.

You buy the authentic Italian Product - and flow the directions on the back. Franzese Italian Hot Chocolate - by Franzese Cafe Italiano at Nordstrom or on Amazon.

I made it several years ago. I used an 82 percent chocolate, a combination of cream and milk, and I believe I used agar-agar. It was excelent.
