Hot Cocoa Bar
Hot cocoa bars are not as common as you would think. A cocoa bar is basically like a table somewhere in the home and you fill it with all kinds of yummy treats and foods that goe well with hot cocoa. I like to set my hot cocoa bar near the fireplace next to the tv in the living room. This makes for a really cozy and warm hang out spot where you can lay back on the couch, watch some Netflix while sipping hot cocoa with marshmallows and eating pastries! Some cool items to place on your hot cocoa bar are as follow:
- Chocolate Chips
- Peanut Butter
- Hot Cocoa Packets
