Nothing says “winter is here” like a mug of sweet-smelling hot cocoa. Oh, I can just picture it right now; the warmth of the mug waking up my chilled hands, the curls of steam finding their way to my nose as I take in a whiff of mint, hazelnut, or cookies and cream. Finally, the creamy chocolate delighting my tastebuds as I take my first tentative sip.
There is only one thing better than my own mug of chocolatey goodness, and that is sharing it with my friends and family! When I first saw a beautifully curated hot cocoa bar with free printables showcasing the hot chocolate mixes, delicious add-in’s, and darling mugs, I died a thousand “perfection” deaths. Since then, I have created, showcased, and came across the best hot chocolate bars and free printables to go along with them. Today, I have curated the best collection for you to peruse, download, and print for your own warm beverage bar! Enjoy!
To start off your night, you need a good base! Candy canes, mint kisses, creamers, and whipping cream mean nothing if you don’t have the best hot cocoa. My go-to recipe is also a make-it-and-leave-it hot chocolate. Try this slow cooker hot chocolate recipe to wow your guests.
This option for your guests will really “wow” the crowd because mixing s’mores and hot chocolate is always a good idea. Get the directions for this S’mores Hot Cocoa here.
Finally, have a slow cooker of this show stopper on hand to woo the pumpkin fanatics in your midst. The spices are just right in this pumpkin hot chocolate recipe.
Hot Cocoa Bar Free Printables
Hues of blue make this “but first chocolate” hot chocolate bar and it’s free printables calming and chic. Perfect for a Saturday tween get-together or preschool forget-about-tea-let’s-hot-chocolate party.
Of course, my favorite of the bunch is the warm beverage bar I curated a few years ago for a family party that we had after we went Christmas tree hunting. I can still see the happy faces with chilled cheeks and warm laughter and smiles.
