How to style a hot chocolate bar

Nov 28, 2017


Creating a hot chocolate bar got a tad easy with tips from expert blogger, Cristina Riches of


The weather’s perfect to get into your jammies and sip on some hot chocolate but if you’d rather make a little party out of it, then Cristina Riches of has just the most delicious ideas for styling a hot cocoa bar.


How to style a hot cocoa bar:

·         Keep it casual with white serving pieces and ware from every day use. Plain white mugs, bowls and platters can be           transformed with the help of printable party tags and décor


·         Use what you have at home to bring the décor together. Work with brown and beige colour scheme with dashes of white           to keep things neutral and fresh


·         Add a paper bunting for a touch of fun to the ensemble. You can put it together easily with the help of a few wooden pegs           and strings


·         Prepare a large pot of hot chocolate and decant into a cocoa carafe. If you have the space, then vary the flavours with           white-hot chocolate too! Don't forget to label each pot if you're having more than one flavour.


·         Set your sprinkles in dainty bowls, and label each spoon with a printable tag so guests can help themselves and customise           their own cocoa. You can display them atop a wooden cheese board


·         Chocolate spoons add a touch of fun and are simply delicious! You can get the spoon moulds from any baking supply           store. For an easier version, simply dip your everyday teaspoons into melted hot chocolate and let it set onto parchment           paper


·         Have a few alcoholic mixers handy, so your guests can spike their cocoa and turn it into a hot toddy!


And while you are setting this up, you can put that pot to simmer with Cristina’s foolproof, hot cocoa recipe (Serves 4)

4 cups whole milk, 1/2 cup double cream, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup grated, unsweetened dark chocolate (or choco chips) and a pinch of salt

Stir ingredients together except cream, and heat until chocolate has melted and mixture comes to a boil. Turn heat down and stir in the cream. Whisk until warm and frothy – do not boil!  Then serve at once.

Chocolate spoons are not only fun but also delicious. You can get the spoon moulds from any baking supply store or simply dip a teaspoon into melted hot chocolate and let it set on parchment paper. And voila, you have your chocolate spoon ready.
Use a mix of bowls and plates to place your sprinkles. You can tag them with flags.
Cinnamon sticks or chocolate candy sticks help enhance flavour and double up as stirrers.
Place a variety of toppings for your guests to choose from. Label them for ease of reference. You can place them all together on a wooden cheese board to complete the look.
Choose a large table or console to set up your hot cocoa station. You can even add a bunting to make it more cheerful.
Place a hot chocolate spoon over mugs so your guests can make their own cups of hot cocoa.
Upgrade your everyday mugs with cool, printed stickers aligning with the theme.
