Spruce up your annual holiday party this year with a Hot Cocoa Bar! The perfect treat to share with friends and family after some neighborhood caroling. A hot cocoa bar is easy to prepare and customize to your own tastes. Kids and adults will love adding their own candies and flavorings to their mugs of warm, chocolatey cocoa.

The first step is to mix up a batch of classic hot cocoa and keep it hot in a crock pot or large thermos pitcher during the party. You can buy a big batch of premade cocoa mix from your local grocery store, or try making your own recipe from scratch. Once the cocoa is made you can set up a table with mugs, straws, toppings and flavors.

Hot Cocoa Bar Toppings:

• Mini Marshmallows
• Chocolate Sprinkles
• Butterscotch chips
• Caramels
• Cinnamon candies
• Peppermint candy or candy canes
• Whipped Topping

More Topping Ideas:
• Chocolate shavings
• Creamy Peanut Butter
• Nutella
• Crushed toffee bits
• M&M’s
• Chocolate or caramel syrup
• Ice cream

Make the night even more special by tying your own personalized favor tags to each mug. Custom coasters are a great addition to any party and make great favors too!
