So the holidays are behind us....the good news is some of you that have been running yourself ragged with holiday and New Years parties, playing Santa, and running around for the best sales can actually take a breath, a nap, and do some detoxing. The bad news is that we have a LOT of cold weather ahead of us, and nothing on the calendar to look forward to until Valentine's Day!!! Hopefully some of you have upcoming birthdays, showers, christenings, baby namings, or other fun occasions on the horizon.
And who even needs a big occasion to get excited for? Even little occasions like a dinner party or a book club can be just what you need to lift those winter blues. So for your next get together where you are huddled inside away from the cold, put together your own little hot chocolate bar! Whether you are 35 or 5, hot chocolate is a universal hit...easy, cozy, and seriously WHO doesn't love hot chocolate? If you are a mom, imagine how COOL of a mom you will be the next time your child's friends come over and there is a hot chocolate bar waiting to warm their little hands!
You can construct your hot chocolate bar any way you wish, but here are a few suggestions..
Visit The Ticket Kitchen to purchase gourmet hot chocolate sticks. These look great on display and all you have to do is provide steaming milk to dip them into
You can also provide other topping like marshmallows, cinnamon sticks, toffee, caramel, red hots, or crystallized ginger...
And last but not least, my favorite unique touch is to have your cups or mugs ready to go with a stirrer already in there and a munchkin donut speared onto the stirrer. Munchkins AND hot chocolate? Does it get any better than that?!
Stay warm and cozy indoors!
