Holiday Party Ideas – Setting Up a Hot Cocoa Bar

Hot Cocoa Bar

Hi there!!  It’s Deanna from Mirabelle Creations and I’m so excited to be here sharing with you a fun holiday party idea.  No matter what type of holiday party you are planning this December, a Hot Cocoa Bar is the perfect addition.  A Hot Cocoa Bar is a delicious holiday indulgence.   By setting out fun add-ins, like chocolate dipped marshmallows, dark chocolate stirrers, caramels, and chocolate chips, simple hot cocoa is transformed into a luxury treat.

You can make your Hot Cocoa Bar its own station at your party.  This free printable Hot Cocoa banner informs guests that they can make their own deluxe hot cocoa drink.

You can make your own chocolate stirrers to add to hot milk.  Simply melt dark chocolate, then pour it into a plastic shot glass.  Top with a wooden stirrer stick, then let cool completely.  Top the sticks with a free printable party circle.  Guests can then stir the stick into hot milk.  Or, the sticks can be given to guests as party favors.

Hot Cocoa Bar (marshmallows)

Marshmallows dipped in dark chocolate can also be used to stir into hot cocoa.  The marshmallow sticks can be topped with free printable mini flags.

Hot Cocoa doesn’t have to be just for kids.  If you want to make your Hot Cocoa Bar feel a little grown up, then don’t forget some extra special add-ins, like Marshmallow Vodka and Homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream Marshmallows.  Hot cocoa night just got a little more exciting!
