Metallic Hot Cocoa Bar {with FREE Printables!} + Sparkly DIY Drink & Dessert Topper Ideas

hot cocoa bar printables

Need a fun {& easy} idea for your holiday party or wintery get together? Warm your guests up with a Gourmet Hot Cocoa Station where they can choose from yummy mix-ins like flavored marshmallows and spirits or liqueurs to create their own tasty drink.

We all know the little ones love hot chocolate, but I wanted to create something especially for the adults this time around, so this particular Hot Cocoa station (from our Sparkle & Shine Metallic Dinner Party) features gourmet peppermint, chocolate, and vanilla marshmallows and a pretty bottle of rum that guests can splash in to mix up a hot toddy! You can make your own flavored marshmallows – or just buy them to keep things easy – and get creative with the liquor mix-ins: brandy, coffee liqueur, raspberry liqueur, Peppermint Schnapps, etc. are all great options for flavoring hot chocolate.


Scroll down for pics + links to download all the free Party Printables pictured here. You’ll also find ideas for some easy DIY metallic dessert toppers created from tinsel-infused yarn and craft poms + metallic gold pipe cleaners. ENJOY! :)

Thank you for this! I used to host a cookie exchange every year but had to take the last 2 off & plan on getting it up & going again this year. You’ve just made adding a hot chocolate bar a must. So much fun! Thanks again.
