Hot chocolate bars aren’t just decorative and delicious, they’re also versatile! Set out mugs of hot chocolate and you can vary the toppings to celebrate any occasion, from holidays (think peppermints, sparking sugar or, for a Christmas party, our own “naughty and nice” arrays), Valentine’s Day (heart-shaped sugar cubes, edible rose petals, and chocolates), or just winter itself! Here’s the scoop on the bars you see here—follow our lead or use your imagination to whip (cream) up your own!

For a Winter Wonderland Hot Chocolate Bar, we wanted an array of wintry mix-ins ranging from light and fun to super-indulgent (from top to bottom, left-right):

Row 1: Silver sprinkles, Shredded coconut, Caramel Sauce, York Peppermint Patties
Row 2: Butterscotch chips, Whipped Cream, Mini-Marshmallows, Andes Mints
Brownie Crumble, Cinnamon Crunch Marshmallows, White Chocolate Peppermint Chunks, Chopped Almonds

You can set your toppings out pre-party—download our Hot Chocolate Bar banner, print, and cut it out to label the display—and hand guests mugs as they arrive so the chocolate doesn’t get too cold.
