Holiday Cocoa Bar

19 Dec

Cocoa is a delicious treat enjoyed by most. People drink it all year round but it gets more popular around holiday time. What you see more and more, is instead of making individual cups of cocoa and serving it, people are creating cocoa bars…just like how we made mimosa bars and popcorn bars and sundae bars…thanks Pinterest!

I for one, love the idea of an anything bar when hosting an event. Allowing guests an interactive experience is great, furthermore, you the host have a little less to worry about during the event since everything has been set up ahead of time.



Whipped cream

Toppings: marashmallows, sprinkles, cookie crumbs etc

Add-ins: Coffee flavourings such as hazlenut, raspberry or liquors e.g Chambord.


Sweet Snack: Cookies, Biscotti etc


Make your cocoa, you can do this on the stove or microwave or use a kettle.

I made a hot and cold cocoa bar, so after making my cocoa I placed half of it in the fridge to get nice and cool.

Choose a cozy spot for your bar. You can place it in a nice corner or on top of a kitchen island.

Place all the components out and play around until it is organized the way you like.

Add additional decor- I used a mini Christmas tree because I thought it added a classic touch. You can add baubles, tinsel, garland or nothing at all.

Displayed on this Cocoa bar: Cocoa, liquors, whipped cream, marshmallows, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper, iced oatmeal cookies.

You can make it cold or hot and add your toppings.

A cocoa bar is a great addition to any holiday party whether it’s a Christmas day brunch or a gift wrapping party.

Happy Holidays and have an awesome day!

    This is such a great idea! I love doing stuff like this where you get to customize your own thing/snack/meal/etc. This is perfect!
