I wanted to create a cozy centerpiece for my Kitchen table, while also freeing up some cabinet space. Let me tell you, the possibilities for this Hot Chocolate Bar are endless and it ended up being more of a Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate Bar. I added a few holiday touches for the season, but this DIY Hot Chocolate Bar is going to be a permanent addition in our kitchen. The appeal is to have everything you need, organized in one location for convenience- while also displaying it in a fun way!
I started off with this cute metal caddy, rustically painted red- I like that it’s big enough to hold a variety of options. My personal touch was to include different sized mason jars containing the hot chocolate mix with a few fun toppings such as M&Ms, marshmallows and candy canes. I will probably only keep the mini marshmallows after Christmas once I transition the centerpiece to more of an everyday drink station.
If you’re a hot beverage fan like myself, you know there are too many option to choose from. There are still at least five different teas in the cupboard, matcha powder, coffee and espresso- which will all transition beautifully once the holidays are over. But for now, this centerpiece remains full of holiday spirit with themed mugs and peppermint goodies.
What type of “bars” do you like to incorporate in your kitchen besides coffee, tea and hot chocolate?

Although I really miss living in Austin, one of the things I love most about our move to Ohio is how centralized it is in location to a lot of fun things. In Texas- you could drive for 9 hours and still be in Texas. In Ohio, you could drive for two or three hours […]

I love to research bars, restaurants and attractions- but one of the greatest parts about being a local, is finding […]
