Easy Hot Cocoa Bar On A Tiered Tray

Making a hot cocoa bar is so much fun, super easy and a wonderful way to start the holidays!  The kids love having all the fixings in one spot and serving up their own hot chocolate! I love using tiered trays in our home, especially those that have a farmhouse vibe.  If you have a love for trays as well, you will find a handful of ideas for this holiday season from some of my favorite bloggers at the end of this post.  It’s a little funny, as I write this it is about 95 degrees outside and we spent the day at the beach, maybe December will bring us some chilly weather but hey, I’m not complaining.Fun hot cocoa bar set up using a tiered tray

My set up is pretty simple but I’ve seen some pretty elaborate bars as well,but I prefer something a little more casual, use your imagination, you can’t go wrong. I went with the basics; chocolate chips, marshmallows, whip cream and chocolate shaving but you could bring in some new fun additions.  Think of  vanilla syrup, crumbled cookies, maraschino cherries or even fresh berries, if it’s for adults you could add a little baileys or vodka! Yummy!

  1. Everything looks so yummy, especially from this much cooler neck of the woods. We’ve been relishing our amazingly warm nearly 50 degree days with no snow and you’re hitting the beach. Of course, I can hit the beach too…. just gotta dodge all the snow fences. 😉 Seriously Kristin, your cocoa tray is perfectly Christmas and so inviting.
    Wishing you a blessed and joy-filled Christmas season!
