Hot Chocolate Bar with Free Chalkboard Printables

Thanks to West Elm for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions (and my extreme – and almost embarrassing – love for West Elm) are 100% my own.

The nights are getting cooler here in Southern California and it’s time to bring out the hot chocolate! This winter staple is a favorite of my kids and they love it when I create a little “bar” for them and let them add their own mix-ins. It’s become one of our favorite holiday traditions. This year I decided to create some printables to go with our hot chocolate bar, and I hope that you will love it as much as I do!

Hot Chocolate Bar with Free Chalkboard Printables 2

Self serve hot chocolate bars are so much  fun for parties. They don’t have to be extravagant…just set up your hot milk or water, packets of mix and a few mix-ins. Include some adorable mugs like these enamel mugs from West Elm. Using real mugs as opposed to styrofoam adds such charm to your hot chocolate bar.

Some of my favorite mix-ins include Hershey kisses, chocolate syrup, caramels or caramel sauce/syrup, sprinkles, whipped cream, marshmallows, candy canes or flavored creamers. I had the chance to purchase these adorable enamel mugs from West Elm, and I LOVE them! My kids though they were fun too. They aren’t fragile so they are great for kids to use. (Just don’t put them in the microwave). Download my printables and tie the “Cup of Cheer” tags around your mugs for a little extra charm.

My kids love the little tag and being able to use their own mug. The enamel mugs are perfect because they are larger than kids mugs but not fragile like a ceramic mug.

If you really want to get fancy, you can also go all out and make your own hot chocolate from scratch, or maybe have a sampling. Here are a few pretty awesome looking recipes:

Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate

S’Mores Hot Chocolate

Pumpkin Spice Hot White Chocolate

Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Oreo Hot Cocoa

Wouldn’t those be fun for a holiday party? I can’t wait to use them for the nest party we host!

Don’t forget to check out the West Elm Market for all your holiday party needs! There are tons of fun things to choose from, including the enamel mugs you saw in my photos here and all of their tabletop items in the West Elm Market ate currently 20% off through November 26.

    The printable is adorable! I had to hide my screen from the boys as I was reading because if they saw that yummy hot chocolate they would be begging for some right before bed :) I love west elm as well, wish one was just a little closer. Hope you are having a great week.

    Such an adorable set up and the printables are to die for!

    I’m a former teacher and I’ve been trying to bring themed treats to the staff at my daughter’s school once a month…now I know what December’s treat will be! I think I’ll buy a black tri-fold foam core board and mount a lightweight frame for the hot cocoa bar sign…school staff rooms are notoriously ugly and messy, so that will provide a nice little backdrop for the display! :)

    P.S.–I also just sent you a comment asking about your chalkboard Christmas tree printable. :)

    I’m in love with this hot chocolate bar of yours- your mugs, straws, labels, everything! Thanks so much for sharing. I’ve never done a hot chocolate bar, but now I’m totally inspired to. Have a great weekend, Kristin!

    These photos are just GORGEOUS — and love the idea of a hot chocolate bar, so perfect for the chilly months! I’ve had such a fun time peeking at the contributions of fellow West Elm partnership participants — hope you’ll take a peek at mine as well!

    This is adorable! Definitely printing. Thank you so much. This is driving me crazy — what font is the “cheer” written in? I’m seeing it a lot right now and can’t find the name!
