Hot chocolate, marshmallows, sprinkles, and candy canes make a perfect set up. I didn’t have a cute antique tray, like my BFF, but I did have a pretty silver platter that my Mother-In-Law gave me. The Christmas tree mugs were from my Sister-In-Law.
I don’t know about your family, but my kids make hot cocoa just about every day in the winter. I think a pretty set up, rather than the the plastic containers that these items are sold in, is much more inviting and makes hot cocoa seem like a special tradition. (Pssst…. the mugs only hold about 6 ounces, rather than the 12 ounce cups they normally use. Don’t tell the kids!)
Do you have a hot cocoa station in your kitchen? Send me a picture. I’d love to see it.
Happy cocoa making!
