Baby, it’s definitely cold outside….and there’s nothing better for keeping your fingers warm than wrapping them around a steaming cup of cocoa. Mmmm, chocolate is good any time of year, but it’s pretty fun to drink, don’t you think? Which reminds me, there’s something I’ve been wanting to try: a hot chocolate bar!
Having a spot dedicated to winter’s favorite cup of cheer looks like such a fun way to celebrate the season! Not only are hot chocolate bars a delicious way to treat your friends and family, but from what I’ve seen, they can make a really great addition to Christmas decor. Try setting one up this year for holiday entertaining or just for you and your family to enjoy. Here are some terrific examples I found of just a few of the ways to create and style a hot chocolate bar.
