One of my favorite things about the cooler months is having hot cocoa and coffee throughout the day. Since we renovated our kitchen last year I dreamed of adding a little cocoa bar for the holidays in this little spot. I thought it would be perfect to have accessible for when friends drop by or family comes to visit. I set it up today and I seriously LOVE it.
How to create the best holiday hot cocoa bar:
To me, a good hot cocoa bar has a few essentials: obviously hot cocoa, to go cups because sometimes you want to be able to take your drink with you, and treats! I know it’s a beverage bar but nothing goes better with coffee and hot cocoa than sweets like cookies and cakes.
Here’s my spread.

We have a Keurig 2.0 which is super convenient for making a quick cup of hot cocoa or coffee. I put all the K-cups in this serving bowl for easy access.
Then of course you need the fixings like chocolate chips, and candy canes, and of course marshmallows (which aren’t pictured because I totally forgot to set them out before these photos).
I added the fixing to this wood slice server I got from Walmart – it’s the Better Homes and Gardens line. Side note: It was only $13.88 and LOVE it. I’m planning on going back to my store to get a few more before Thanksgiving.
I also picked up these little houses with the intention of making a little Christmas village for my console table but I love them here too. They are so festive. Would you believe they are actually salt and pepper shakers? So cute!
I mentioned the importance of a sweet treat when it comes to a hot cocoa bar. I think Miss P would agree – a homemade bundt cake is a must. She was so excited to finally get to dig into this pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake we made.
And no proper hot cocoa bar is without a cute little sign so here is a simple one for you. You can download it here (for your personal use only).
