The Best Christmas Hot Chocolate Stations And Bars
It’s that time of year again, the time to get cozy with a hot chocolate and watch nothing but Christmas movies. What better way to get warm and festive than with a home hot chocolate bar! Filled with Christmas themed goodies it’s the perfect treat for those cold winter days and nights.
A festive hot chocolate station is a perfect way to get people together, the party can be based around the hot chocolate bar and everyone can create their own drink, which adds to the fun. You may even want to offer the adults a shot of alcohol to add to their hot chocolate. Some alcohol ideas that go amazing with chocolate are
- Irish cream
For the hot chocolate toppings you might want to include treats such as
- Mini marshmallows
- Candy canes
- Crushed chocolate
- Cinnamon sticks
- Cinder toffee
You’ll also need a way to showcase your set up. I’ve found some wonderful ideas on Instagram! A miniature wooden sleigh, glass jars, a tiered plate stand or wooden tray make excellent display ideas.
Think about how you want to serve your hot chocolate. Will it be pre made in the crock pot / slow cooker? Or by using a coffee / hot chocolate machine and pods? Or maybe have people make it themselves from scratch by offering some powered chocolate, hot milk and toppings and let guests self serve, which I believe adds to the fun!
For an extra special touch purchase a few hot chocolate stirrers that you simply stir into hot milk for a delicious festive beverage or even better make your own! This recipe from eatsamazing.co.uk is so simple and easy to follow but the results are brilliant
Add some festive accessories like Christmas mugs, spoons and paper straws
