I love the holidays and I love to entertain. One of my favorite things to add to any holiday gathering is a hot cocoa bar. There are so many options to truly make it your own and your guests will love being able to customize their hot chocolate, not to mention the cute presentation. Amazon has most of the things you need to create an awesome hot cocoa bar. I pulled together some of my fave items for easy browsing. This means it’s an easy add-on to any holiday party just days before, which is how I roll.
Items that you need to make it a hit include the following.
- Hot water pot
- Hot cocoa sign
- Mugs or disposable cups
- Mason jars for toppings
- Mason jar labels for toppings
- Cute spoons, bowls and plates for various items
- Marshmallows, peppermint sticks, caramel, chocolate chips, etc.
- Holiday towels and napkins
- Any other Christmas decor for the display
You could also take it to the next step to make it an adult hot cocoa bar, adding Kahlua, Baileys and Peppermint Schnapps.
I also love putting out a variety of cookies and treats to go along with the cocoa. It’s great to get the kids involved in the baking. Don’t be ashamed to add in store bought treats too!
Remember, this shouldn’t be stressful it should be fun! You can make it as small or detailed as you would like, but no matter what your guests will love the small touches of this cozy holiday tradition.
Cheers of cocoa,
