The Fun of a Hot Chocolate Bar

There is something special about a hot chocolate bar at an event. Hot chocolate can also be served easily to a group. It’s also the beginning of a fun and memorable family tradition during the holiday season.

It is incredibly easy and fun to set up a hot chocolate bar. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a homemade hot chocolate bar.

I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to host a hot chocolate bar. You can use whatever you have when you have a delicious cup of hot cocoa because you can mix in anything you want.

Set-Up / Location

Hot cocoa bars can be set up in a variety of ways, from the simple to the elaborate. It’s totally up to you whether you use a tiny counter space or a big table!

Assorted toppings, mugs or paper cups, spoons or stirrers, hot chocolate mix, hot water or milk, a thermos, and a thermos for keeping the hot water warm are all necessary items for your hot chocolate bar.

The Right Chocolate

Hot cocoa is usually made with cocoa powder, while hot chocolate is made with cocoa beans. Despite the fact that these drinks are different, the terms hot cocoa and hot chocolate are used interchangeably. Despite this, not all hot chocolates are created equal. While we would never say you have to go with homemade hot chocolate, we recommend trying a few different options to find a hot chocolate you, and your family, will keep asking for.

You will get a richer and creamier hot chocolate when you use whole milk instead of water. In addition to regular milk, low-fat and nonfat milk can be used.

Making hot chocolate with half and half will give you a thicker, richer drink.

The Right Toppings

Adding cookies and other sweet treats to your hot chocolate bar will let you make it your own.

Toppings are undoubtedly one of the best parts of the hot chocolate bar! And, the best part, there are so many different options for what to include, based on your family’s preferences.

  • Candy Canes
  • Peppermint candies
  • Caramel candies
  • Caramel syrup
  • Caramel chips
  • Whipped cream
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Large marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Chocolate mints
  • Chocolate Oranges
  • Chocolate shavings
  • White Chocolate shavings
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini M&M’s
  • Pirouette Cookies

The smell of piping hot chocolate is irresistible. Just add your favorite toppings and you’re good to go.
