Hot Chocolate Bar & Hot Chocolate Mix
Weekend Christmas Party. Yes, please.
Hot Chocolate Station. Don't mind if I do.
Like most things entertaining, this idea is all over Pinterest, with good reason, almost as good as the pancake bar idea.
Ageless appeal, this build your own drink station leaves personalization up to the individual and makes a perfect accompaniment to any holiday party or get together. Or say Sunday morning, following a snowman building party.
Truthfully for me this station was 100% about the chance to buy mini marshmallows and caramels. To decode this for you, means I'm now fully stocked up on all things sugar, which is rare, mostly because we have trust issues with one another.
In any event, have fun with this concept. The toppings are endless and so too are their combinations. Happy Creating.
