Hot Chocolate Bar

’Tis the season for hot chocolate!

My hubby and I love hosting small themed gatherings. What better way to celebrate the holidays than a hot chocolate bar?! 

To set the mood, I put on our Spotify “Solarino’s Xmas Tunes” playlist on repeat in the background. Selected my favorite dinnerware, glassware, mugs and flatware. Personally arranged a beautiful bouquet of garden roses in a vase to give it that extra touch of intimate and cozy.

Now onto the delicious and creative ingredients. Inspired by rich colors and textures, I added Parlour Vegan Bakery “Holiday Cheer” cupcakes (Peppermint Mocha, Cinnamon Bun and Gingerbread). I’m swooning over these! We chose the Williams Sonoma “Classic Hot Chocolate” which has chocolate shavings. A bittersweet delight anyone can enjoy!

Layer on the pretty with these thrilling toppings: Marshmallows (mini and decorative) | Sauce (caramel and chocolate) | Crushed Candy Canes | Cinnamon Sticks | Pirouette Wafers | Chocolate Chips | Whipped Cream

A tip on favor gifts, you can have your guests take home their mugs.

Happy holidays, loves!
