Baby it’s cold outside! Keeping warm and toasty all while being festive is what the holiday season is all about. Whether your throwing a party, or even hosting a holiday get together of any size, setting up a DIY Hot cocoa bar is something everyone will love. From adults to kids, a fun hot cocoa set up with all sorts of toppings is where it’s at.
Here are some suggestions for your DIY Hot Cocoa Bar:
– Your favorite hot chocolate
-Mugs (we love Year and Day!)
– Marshmallow Snowmen sticks (see How-To here)
– Chocolate, White Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chips
– Stencils for mugs + Cocoa Powder (Frothed Milk)
-Cinnamon & Nutmeg to shake
– Whipped Cream
For stencils, start by adding frothed milk to top off each cup of hot cocoa.
Before the foam dissipates, move quick and have your stencil ready to place on top of the mug.
Use a very fine sifter or shaker and add coco on top the stencil. Place the stencil very close to the top of mug for a cleaner outcome. Carefully lift the stencil so as not to mess up the shape!
PS- can never go wrong with a little whipped cream topper!
Use all the small yummy candies, like crushed peppermint to top off the whipped cream.
No matter how to top your cocoa it’s gonna feel like a winter wonderland! Have fun with your DIY cocoa bar and get creative with all the toppings and flair!
