Winter Party Hot Cocoa Bar

Share this post

A couple of weeks back we celebrated Little Lady’s 4th birthday.  She chose a winter theme with lots of snowflakes and penguins.  We decked the house in glittery white and blue and had a fabulous time with friends and family.  Little Lady picked out 2 desserts (cupcakes and an ice cream cake) and I insisted on a Hot Cocoa bar.  There are not many things I love more than a decadent cup of cocoa on a cold day.

A few days before the party I was got my first Keurig.  I am loving the 2.0 and I was happy I could put it to use for this hot cocoa bar instead of having a carafe of hot water sitting within reach of kids.

I used insulated cups with lids and left a marker so guests could keep track of their own cup.  I set out hot cocoa packets to get the drinks started.

I laid out a spread of marshmallows, toppings, and mix-ins along with whipped cream and a little something for the adults.  I set out cookies, candy and other sides that pair perfectly with a warm cup of hot cocoa.

The hot cocoa bar was a hit, everyone had a warm cup in hand while the snow fell outside.

Little Lady, decked out in the fanciest dress she owns, had a fabulous party.

The hot cocoa bar has become a staple at my girl’s winter birthday parties.  Each year I choose a few different toppings and mix-ins and each year guests love it.  This simple hot cocoa bar warms up a winter party.  

Have you ever done a hot cocoa bar?  What toppings did you lay out for your guests?  

Thanks for visiting!
