Hot Cocoa Bar
Yall Alabama has decided to get cold in a hurry. We basically skipped fall & went right into winter weather, so naturally, I have already been enjoying getting cozy by our fireplace, slipping on my fuzzy socks, & sipping on some hot cocoa! So I thought today would be the perfect day to show yall my hot cocoa bar! I set one up every year before we host Thanksgiving & its always a big hit. I have even teamed up with some blogger friends, the extremely talented Kippi from Kippi at home & Lauren from The Little Lake Cottage, to bring yall on the best bar hop you have ever been on, the hot chocolate bar kind!

I love the whimsical feel of our hot chocolate bar this year, we decided to go with traditional Christmas colors this year & I am loving it!
How fun is this Ho Ho Ho banner?! I even found those cute vases at the target dollar section. I simply fill them with some garland for a festive look.
Every hot cocoa bar needs adorable Santa mugs!
You can use premade nestle hot chocolate mix or use this yummy recipe from Martha Stewart. Storing my mix in an airtight jar keeps it good for all season! I usually like to make extra & give them as hostess gifts & to our mail lady. I bought these mini plastic scoopers for the mix & toppings & just added some glitter to the handles!
You cant have a hot chocolate bar without toppings! I like to put out marshmallows, whip cream, red hots, sprinkles, caramel sauce & chocolate chips for everyone to choose from! The candy canes make the perfect stirrer & add more flavor to the hot cocoa.
Decor for your hot cocoa bar doesn’t have to be expensive either, I made this sign out of a blank canvas & just added some dollar store jingle bells.
The main thing to remember is to just have fun with your hot cocoa bar, try different toppings, & fill your mugs with whatever makes you happy!
