Create Hallmark Moments with a Cozy Christmas Cocoa Bar for the Holidays.

The Holiday Season is here! It's the perfect time of year to create Hallmark moments with a Cozy Christmas Cocoa Bar.

Cozy Cocoa Bar

Hallmark moments are all about creating unique Holiday traditions with your family and loved ones. A DIY Cozy Christmas Cocoa Bar is a fun way to come together as a family or to host friends for a cozy night in watching your favorite Christmas movies.

You can create your hot cocoa night to have themes such as ugly sweater attire, fuzzy Christmas socks, or wear matching family Christmas pajamas. The creativity is up to you!

We bought our matching Christmas PJs from Old Navy and love how accommodating the sizes are for the whole family.

Creating a DIY Cozy Christmas Cocoa Bar

The best part about creating a cocoa bar is that you don't even need to clear off a table to create one. Using food trays, coffee tables, or even fireplace hearths are all handy ways you can create your DIY hot chocolate station without using your kitchen or dining room table.

We have a console table in our living room that serves as a buffet table, so that is where we set up our cocoa bar. Many of my followers on Instagram have asked where I bought the table. You can shop for the console table here.

What to put on the hot chocolate bar?

If you are using a large serving tray to create your cocoa bar:

Keep in mind that your space is limited if you are using a food tray for your hot chocolate station. I would recommend stacking paper coffee cups with lids to help prevent any spilling instead of using coffee mugs. Here is a list of things you can include on your hot chocolate tray:

Paper coffee cups with lids

Holiday napkins

Thermos or coffee pot with hot chocolate

cupcake holders or mini muffin tins with toppies (crushed peppermints, toffee bits, mini marshmallows, etc.)

Candy canes for stirring sticks

If you are using a coffee table, fireplace hearth, or a standard table:

Since you have more space using any of these options, you can use a crockpot filled with hot chocolate. Here is a list of things you can include on your hot chocolate bar:

Crockpot to keep the hot chocolate warm

Christmas coffee mugs

Coffee mug rack

Tiered tray to store toppings (crushed peppermints, toffee bits, mini marshmallows, etc.)

Candy canes for stirring sticks

Hot cocoa sign
