Fun DIY Hot Chocolate Bar: How to Achieve Hot Cocoa Christmas Chic

Time to holiday. But first ... hot chocolate bar chic. And here's how!

What does Christmas morning mean to you? To me, it means hot cocoa – and blueberry pancakes. My mom always made a big pot of hot cocoa on the stove, and served in up in white mugs topped with marshmallows. Once I had kids, the cozy Christmas morning memory also included their little voices arguing over whose mug had more marshmallows. Ha!

Set a winter tasting bar scene with trays of mugs, cocoa and all the mix-ins and toppings guests crave.

Customize a message board with cheeky cocoa sayings to set the tone for the pretty party.

Fill jars with mix-ins like whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, meringues, coconut, marshmallows and all the cute cookies.

Garnish mugs with candy lips skewered onto our "Jingle All the Way" party picks.

Cheers to cocoa and cozy Christmas memories with family and friends.
