"Pin-Spired" Day #18 ... Hot Cocoa Bar

I had so much fun yesterday making this delivery to the music department at our high school.  Concord Community Schools has one of the most amazing music programs around and the directors & staff are all fantastic.  Both of my kids have found their special "spot" at school because of this program...so it holds a special place in my heart.  For this reason, I wanted to share this fun Christmas treat with the amazing directors and staff... a Hot Cocoa Bar.  

I found 6 different "mix-ins" for their cocoa ~ white chocolate chips, peppermint chips, mini marshmallows, chocolate caramel candies, mini chocolate chips and mini peanut butter cups.  Then added these yummy round cookies in the middle.  I printed up labels on the computer and then punched them out and added them to the cups so they would be able to identify them.

Next I added a tin of various types of cocoa ~ gourmet cocoa, french vanilla, raspberry, mint and peppermint.  I also added a few packets of spiced cider just in case someone doesn't like chocolate.

Here is a tray of chocolate dipped peppermint sticks and spoons for stirring their yummy concoction.  I bagged each one so they could take one home if they wanted.

And the Hot Cocoa Bar wouldn't be complete without a few sweet treats to go with the cocoa.  So I purchased a few boxes of the yummy Loft House cookies since I didn't have time to bake this weekend.

My project today was "Pin-spired" by this Pin

What a fabulous hot chocolate bar, Kendra! Very classy looking, yet so much fun! I'm having crock pot hot chocolate for my family dinner this weekend, so I'm going to use your idea and set up a little bar for the kids! Thanks for all the fun and inspiration!
