Build Your Own Hot Cocoa Bar
If you are having a holiday get-together this year, considering hosting a your own Hot Cocoa Bar!
Hosting a hot chocolate party not only sounds amazing, but it’s also a fun way to treat your guests to a fun and delicious experience while keeping your expenses down and the clean up simple!
How to Build Your Own Hot Cocoa Bar
Your custom hot chocolate bar can be as simple or as fancy as your imagination.
Choose personalized hot chocolate packets for each guest or make your own hot chocolate mixture. You could display the hot chocolate packets in a pretty bowl or serve the hot chocolate mixture in beautiful apothecary or mason jars or even something like this Penny Candy Jar w/ Chrome Cover.
The key to an awesome hot chocolate bar is making it look fun, so use you imagination and get creative.

A few fun items to consider including in your homemade hot cocoa bar:
- Wilton 6 Color Christmas Sprinkle Mix

I LOVE these marshmallow snowflakes and these cute snowman marshmallow faces from Williams Sonoma, but there are so many other fun toppings, many of which you might already have in your own pantry!
Or, you could make your own floating marshmallow treats with our easy floating Frozen Whipped Cream Hearts recipe.
