2 days till Christmas friends! If you are thinking hmm how can I make this Christmas a little different then I have a fun idea! If you love hot cocoa and sweet then keep reading for how I created the cutest hot cocoa bar.
Every year Chris and I always think of how we can get all of our friends together one last time before bringing in the new year. This year we came up with the idea of a hot cocoa party! We invited our friends over for games, food and hot cocoa bar with all of the fixings. This idea of a cocoa bar was a hit and really easy to recreate.
The main think to create this hot cocoa bar is of coarse the hot chocolate. There are so many ways you can go about serving the cocoa. I chose to make it ahead and then just kept it warm in this self serve thermos. You could easily make it in a crockpot as well, its up to you. Next up is the all the delicious fixings. I ended putting out crushed candy canes, chocolate chips, marshmallows, caramel and pirouette cookies. I also had a bottle of almond liquor incase anyone wanted a little something extra.
When it comes to decorating make sure to have fun with it! I headed to a few of stores at the perfect time where everything was on major sale and picked up some festive pieces. Try displaying your cocoa toppings in vases or bowls.
I had so much fun setting this up for our friends. I also had our friends bring over a sweet treat so that we could exchange and take the leftovers home in cute little tins. Needless to say I’ve had cookies and cocoa for breakfast for a week now lol! I’m quite fine with it though.
I hope you all have a great weekend and a Merry Christmas!
