WHAT IS A HOT CHOCOLATE BAR?
I got the idea to do a hot chocolate bar after visiting a friend’s house when she was serving up a waffle bar. It got me thinking that offering my guests a table of toppings could work for a lot of different things.
A hot chocolate bar is simple. It is a station set up with a crockpot of hot chocolate and a big variety of additions that people can add to their hot chocolate.
It is a fun way to spruce up any party during the holidays or cold winter months.
HOT CHOCOLATE TOPPING IDEAS
If you have never done more than put some marshmallows in your hot cocoa you may be surprised that there are TONS of toppings out there that are delicious.
Here are some great ideas for things to put on your hot cocoa bar!
- Chocolate Chips in a variety of flavors like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate
- Caramel Chips
- Cinnamon–grated or sticks
- Whipped Topping
- Marshmallows or go the fancy route and make some marshmallow hearts
- Marshmallow Creme
- Coconut Shavings
- Candy Canes in a variety of colors and flavors
- Peppermint Sticks or homemade Peppermint Spoons are delish
HOW TO SET UP A HOT CHOCOLATE BAR
When you are setting up a hot chocolate bar it helps to have a dedicated table or bar area for all the toppings. Guests want to be able to browse the toppings and decide what they want without having to walk to another area of the party to see all the choices.
You can use the printable hot chocolate bar sign and labels to make it clear to the guests what is going on.
It looks very nice to frame the hot chocolate bar sign and place it at a higher vantage point behind the table so guests see it right away.
These printables include some extra signs you can place around the table to add an even more festive look!
I like to keep my hot chocolate in a slow cooker on warm so that it stays nice and toasty during the whole party. Just remember to stir it occasionally.
Don’t forget to have a variety of mugs available on the table for guests. You can buy matching mugs with a party theme or just use whatever you have at home. I always like to have cookies at the bar too!
