The minute that first fall breeze floats through the air, my daughter is begging for hot chocolate. Some people may reserve hot chocolate for snowy months, but not us! We love the brisk temperatures with a cup of chocolate-ly goodness. Last week, I created a fun Fall Hot Chocolate bar for a few friends. Instead of peppermint sticks and cinnamon, I offered different flavors that are associated with fall. With one trip to the grocery store, this Fall Hot Chocolate Bar is easy to set up and would be a hit at your next gathering! Are you planning a pumpkin carving party or a chicken stew? This would be a great addition!
I had a small crate on hand that was the perfect size for hot chocolate packets. A small bowl would work, as well.
Last year, I purchased this kettle brand new at a thrift store for a dollar! It has been handy when entertaining. For this hot chocolate bar, I heated water on the stove top and then added it to the kettle. Guests could add the water to the hot chocolate mix in the cup and then use a spoon to stir.
These Dixie® To Go cups are PERFECT for hot chocolate bars! They have an insulated layer that keeps the beverage hot, so your guests can confidently enjoy their beverage. And the leak-resistant lid is a must! The Dixie® To Go cups are great for guests to take their hot chocolate on the go.
Here are a few ideas for fall inspired hot chocolate bar beverage additions:
- Butterscotch chips
- Caramel bites
- Caramel marshmallows
- Pumpkin marshmallows
- Regular marshmallows
- White chocolate chips
- I also added mint chips for those guests who wanted a traditional flavor.
