Hot Chocolate Bar & Link Party

Nothing like sipping some chocolate goodness on a cold winter’s night! Here’s my cocoa bar for this holiday. I think there is nothing better than some hot cocoa with some Bailey’s and whipped cream, but whatever your fancy, setting up a cocoa bar for entertaining guests is a great idea. It’s super fun for kids too, just skip the alcohol.

Candy Cane Cocoa

1 serving of your favorite cocoa or mix (I love Nestle’s Rich Hot Chocolate)

1 shot of Peppermint Schnapps

Whipped Cream

Crushed Candy Canes on top

Irish Hot Chocolate

1 serving of hot chocolate

1 shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream

Whipped Cream

Green Sprinkles

On a side note, to make my bar cart more interesting I added black satin ribbon on top.

Enjoy!

    Yummy! We make our own mix with cocoa and sugar… then add in milk, all in a pot on the stove. Then, we make our own whipping cream with heavy whipping cream and sugar. Mmmm!!!

      That is the best way to make cocoa! We do that once a year on the first snow. Never done my own whipped cream for it though, might have to try that! xo Kristin

      Thanks, Gillian! I snagged the last bottle in stock of Bailey’s yesterday. They were sold out at Target. Must have been the Thanksgiving rush! xo Kristin
