Hot chocolate bars have been trending the last few years as a fun tradition to incorporate into your Christmas decorating. Specifically, if you host a gathering this holiday season, the hot chocolate bar is a favorite for kids of all ages. Today, I am sharing my hot chocolate bar and our family’s hot chocolate recipe.
Join our Hot Cocoa Bar blog hop with fifteen of my home decor blogger friends. The blog hop is hosted by Cindy at County Road 407 blog who chooses a Pinterest inspired challenge each month. For November, we are sharing hot chocolate bars.
My grandmother in law had the cutest set of vintage Santa face mugs and a serving bowl for hot chocolate. It was set up near her famous fruit cake and green jello mold salad every Christmas. A few years ago, I found a similar set while antique shopping with my mother in law, Martha. She was kind enough to gift me the set. I am glad to say that I have carried on the family tradition of serving hot chocolate in the cutest vintage Santa face mugs.
Whether you use a mug rack or wooden cubbies, display your holiday mugs with a few seasonal finds. For example, I like to include holiday tea towels, mini signs, and a jolly cookie jar near the hot chocolate bar. You can set up a hot chocolate bar, big or small, on your buffet table, kitchen island or the dessert table.
I display an assortment of candies in my collection of holiday dishes. For example, I include marshmallows, peppermint sticks, red hot candy, whipped cream, and holiday sprinkles on my hot chocolate bar.
I like to add a red hot to the top of my whipped cream swirl when hot cocoa is served in my Santa mugs!
