I'm so into hot cocoa bars this year because they're warm, tasty, inexpensive, and best of all... unexpected. Stealing from the traditional ice cream bar idea, a hot cocoa bar is where you set out cups of hot cocoa (or a carafe) and a selection of toppings and let your guests go to town.
For kids, I recommend putting out a variety of candy toppings (flavored marshmallows, crushed peppermint, M&Ms, etc.), and for adults, you can kick it up a notch by putting out some delicious liqueurs. Take a look at some of these fantastic ideas we've seen.
I hope to show off more of your hot cocoa bars this winter. Stay warm and have fun!
Melissa and Kellie from Icing Designs gave me a sneak peak at their peppermint hot chocolate cupcakes.
I thought they were so cute and festive (like a warm cup of hot chocolate), I asked them if I could repost their tutorial and they so sweetly said yes! Wait 'til you see how easy it is...
- Make chocolate cupcakes
- Added a swirl of butter cream frosting
- Sprinkled some crushed peppermint and mini chocolate chips on top
- Add a mini candy cane for a handle
Here they even piped out little chocolate stars for the top... so cute!
