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.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
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.

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!
This was fun and easy to set up. Have fun with it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
