Brrr! It’s been so cold in Virginia lately with record low temperatures. We’ve gotten significant snow twice already resulting in many snow days. Not that my kids are complaining… Their friends love coming to our house and they have fun playing together outside. As soon as they come in everyone is begging for hot cocoa! I can’t even tell you how much we have gone through this year! My boys love it!

I set up a hot cocoa station for them in my family room as I have limited available counter space in my kitchen. Having the supplies ready to go is important! Today I’m sharing some tips to set one up in your own home.

The first thing I did was lay down a blanket scarf to protect the top of my dresser from any spills. With 3 boys plus their friends it’s bound to happen!

Tiered trays are perfect for holding extra mugs and some fun accessories. They can be found at most home stores like Target, Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx.  The paper straws are from Walmart and are very inexpensive. I used some new tinted mason jars to hold mini marshmallows and caramels for hot cocoa mix ins. The jars fit perfectly on the tray. My kids love peppermints so I used the top tier to place them in. Of course they will want a snack too since they are always hungry. Powdered sugar cannoli chips are a yummy treat!

I like having the hot cocoa ingredients in the center of the bar. The wooden tray helps to keep it contained. Jars with a good seal will keep everything nice and fresh. One jar is filled with hot cocoa mix and the other has chocolate chips. Too much chocolate is never a bad thing!

Of course the best part is the hot cocoa with a ton of marshamallows!

Finish your hot cocoa bar with some fun decorative winter touches and you’re done! In my house I like mixing the new pieces like my Rae Dunn collection with vintage pieces like my antique crock and the Radio Flyer sled. Use your imagination and whatever you have on hand! Making a hot cocoa bar does not need to be expensive. The only new thing I purchased was the kettle. I couldn’t resist!
