A couple days ago we shared 12 fabulous hot chocolate bars and today, we wanted to share how to make your own. I decided to use the table top of our craft dresser and I think it worked perfectly!

I don’t have a lot of hot chocolate items and only a few santa mugs so I needed a fairly small space.

A hot chocolate bar is just a variety of items necessary to make hot chocolate and a few yummy accessories.

Isn’t it cute?

I used a tray to coral the mugs and cute buckets to hold the candy canes.
