This hot chocolate bar is an easy DIY project that will spark joy all season for the kids in your life. This simple hot chocolate bar is sure to inspire you with ideas on how to set up a bar in your home.
The last couple of years, I have set up an easy DIY hot chocolate bar for my kids. I like to keep it simple but yet also giving them options. With the hot cocoa, sprinkles, and if they want to have their hot chocolate to go or to stay.
This year I didn’t change much of the hot cocoa bar decor because it was harder to find new decor that I liked. Plus they enjoyed everything that was on it last year. Here is what I came up with.
Supplies For A Hot Chocolate Bar
This sidebar in our dining area makes a great place to set up our hot chocolate bar. My girls like that everything is out and ready to grab whenever they want to have a cup of hot cocoa.
I didn’t know if the girls would get their hot cocoa bar or not this year. I was having a hard time finding fall to-go cups and some new decor. But thankfully I was able to find some cups again at Marshall’s.
And the decor I decided to keep the same as last year. The cups were definitely a must-have because they used the to-go cups more than the coffee cups.
With the cups covered I moved on to the hot cocoa. These jars have a flip lid and work perfectly to store the hot cocoa mix. You can find these jars at Hobby Lobby or something similar to them.
The little chalk tags were from a set of jars that I use at Christmas. They came with a red ribbon so I took the ribbon off and used some fall ribbon that I also bought at Hobby Lobby.
In the jars, I have three kinds of hot cocoa mix. A mocha that is made by Ghiradelli that I found at the grocery store. The second one is S’mores that we bought at World Market. The third is my favorite a salted caramel that I found at a local decor store. This store had some really cute fall decor like the little gnome that is on the stand and the pumpkin.
The 6 jars that have black lids are filled with sprinkles. The labels on the jars I made using my Cricut and placed on seasoning jars. To make sure the stickers stayed in place I coated them with dishwasher safe mod pod.
If the girls want to have hot cocoa at home they have these fall coffee cups that we found last year at Marshall’s. Aren’t they the cutest? Totally loving the orange and they match so well with my tablescape this year.
Using the matching sugar bowl and creamer dish for stir sticks and holding the sleeves to their to-go cups. These dishes gave me a cute way to display these items.
This bar could easily be used for a coffee bar since we have the sugar and creamer dishes. Adding your favorite blends of teas or even hot cider would be easy by using these dishes.
The plate is a great place to hold some quick breakfast goodies on a weekend morning. We love our recipe for cinnamon sugar donut muffins that is from our Sister site My Creative Manner.
The final touch to this hot chocolate bar was the white pumpkin that I picked up last year. There is something about the white pumpkins that I have really liked the last couple of years. Maybe its because they go so well with most fall decorations.
If the girls want to top their hot cocoa off with whipped topping and a little chocolate or caramel sauce. We have all three in the fridge ready to go. I hope our hot chocolate bar gave you some inspiration for making your own DIY bar.
