How To Create A Hot Cocoa Bar

hot-cocoa-bar

My Christmas dinner theme is Grinch this year.  I created the hot cocoa bar to add to the festivities. I think it will be a popular place on a cold day. Welcome to day 7 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop.  Have you been checking out the other bloggers projects?  I have and they are fantastic.  I can’t wait to see the other hot cocoa bars they have come up with.

Creating A Hot Cocoa Bar

I am sure there are many ways to create a hot cocoa bar and many different things you can add to it.  I wanted to keep mine simple.  There aren’t a ton of us in my family so a small bar seemed appropriate for us. 

I am sticking with the Grinch theme throughout my Christmas Day so I used some fun Grinch inspired decor on the bar. Check out my Grinch Gifts post to learn how to make your own.   I also have a fun Grinch Word Search you can download and play.  The Grinch theme has been a lot of fun this year.

I have included affiliate links for your convenience.  You can ready my full disclosure here.

 

Materials I Used For My Hot Cocoa Ba

Glass Jars With Clasp Lids – I used three of them but if you add more “stuff” to your bar get more of these

Mugs for cocoa

All of the things for cocoa  – Cocoa packets, candy canes, marshmallows, etc

 

Setting Up The Hot Cocoa Bar

  • Add your ingredients to the different jars.  Candy canes in one, marshmallows in one with a spoon, etc
  • Add mugs/cups to your bar – I stacked 4 up but I have a couple more if needed
  • Add some sparkle or decor – Jazz it up a bit with some garland, ornaments, greenery or whatever you like.  I used my Grinch decor.

That is really all there is to it!  Then sit back and enjoy with friends and/or family!

    The grinchy centerpiece is just so much fun. I looks fun and cheerful. I know I would want someone to pour.
