How to Put Together a Hot Chocolate Bar for the Winter Holidays

Though the holiday season is on full blast, it is sometimes not easy to keep the fall/winter blues at bay. Since nothing can warm people up on a cold day better than a mug of hot chocolate, why not weave it into your upcoming winter celebrations? Whether you are planning to invite 6 or 25 people, putting together a hot chocolate bar is easy and fun! Non-believer? Read on and see for yourself!

The Basics

Besides the obvious hot chocolate, your chocolate bar won’t be complete without mix-ins, which may include traditional syrups (peppermint, caramel, and vanilla) and Bailey’s Irish Cream. Adding several toppings will also never hurt – you can offer whipped cream, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, crushed candy canes, chocolate chips, sprinkles, marshmallows, cinnamon, coconut, and sea salt. To satisfy downright sweet teeth, you can consider serving homemade marshmallows, cupcakes, and cookies.

Needless to say, hot chocolate should be off the charts. Making this winter treat is a breeze, according to littlespicejar.com. You should whisk together hot water and cocoa over medium heat until the mixture starts to simmer, add the rest of the ingredients (heave cream, milk, chopped chocolate, a can of evaporated milk, sugar, and a bit of salt), and whisk until the chocolate melts and barely reaches a simmer point. It takes no more than 15 minutes!

Dinnerware

Apart from a thermos or coffee dispensers, every chocolate bar should contain cups and spoons. Fortunately our collection of cups and glasses offers nice disposable cups with gold or silver rims – besides their charismatic appeal, which can be compared to that of porcelain, these darlings are strong and sturdy enough for piping hot drinks, such as hot chocolate. To make the hot chocolate-tasting experience of your guests even more enjoyable, you can accommodate them with our birchwood or plastic hot beverage stirrers. For your multiple toppings, we can offer your our mason and apothecary candy jars of various sizes to create a dimensional effect. To serve your sweet treats, see what your theme calls for – luckily, we can offer you everything from our elegant serving trays with silver edges  to eco-friendly birchwood servers.

Decorations

Once you are done with all the basics, think of a theme for your chocolate bar (hint: sky’s the limit).

Rustic & Cozy

For example, for your cozy theme, you shouldn’t look any further than our chocolate/natural raffia bolt – feel free to use it on its own or in conjunction with our 100% cotton ivory tablecloth. Since chocolate brown and ivory go perfectly with light blue, you can introduce this hue by setting up foam brick wall with a light blue inscription on it. In the end, you can top everything with green elements (mini Christmas trees will do!) and decipher each ingredient with our wood stump card holders. To achieve a similar cozy effect, you can also dress up your table with our ruffled burlap table skirt

Winter-Inspired

To make your table more winter-inspired, we can recommend you spread our light blue or silver sequin linens over your table  and serve your chocolate bars and cakes on our silver round cake stands. When everything is in its place, you can spruce up your setup with a Christmas atmosphere by adding our fairy lights and a white mini-Christmas tree. Adding a couple of mirror balls will also never fail.

Minimalist

If you are looking to create a clean and refined display, you can recreate this red/white setup, which requires our white polyester tablecloth, apothecary candy jars, white serving plates, clear risers, red/white chevron paper straws, and lots of red satin ribbons.  In case you strive for something even more budget-friendly, you will definitely jump for joy at modern ensemble, which consists of a roll of craft paper (for the backdrop), marshmallow garland, white polyester tablecloth, simple dinnerware, a mini-pine tree, and a bunch of pine cones.
