From the Kitchen

Host a Hot Chocolate Party

Time to warm up with some hot chocolate. Whether you make your own from scratch or mix it from a can, invite over a few friends to join the hot cocoa fun. Here are just a few of the ways you can mix up your winter treat!

Hot Chocolate Must-Have Party Supplies

I kinda wish it was snowing right now here in Seattle ;) Makes hot chocolate that much better!

Basic supplies to have on hand:

  • hot chocolate mix
  • hot water
  • mug
  • spoons

Really, that’s all you need. But we like to make things interesting, right?!

Extras to make things a party:

  • marshmallows – mini are the best or giant homemade marshmallows are fun too
  • sprinkles
  • milk or cream
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate chips or chocolate shavings
  • peppermint powder
  • peanut butter
  • candy spoons
  • cookies to dip
  • cookies to crush and sprinkle
  • Pocky biscuit sticks for stirring – yum!

** Optional for adults: add a scoop or two of instant coffee to mix in and it’s a mocha! Or add a splash or two of Peppermint Schnapps, Kahlua or Bailey’s!

There are loads of ways to make and sip your hot cocoa. Get creative!

Hot Chocolate with Sprinkles and Mini Marshmallows

We scooped a spoonful of peanut butter and added sprinkles. It was really good in the chocolate. Creamy peanut butter and chocolate with a colorful crunch! Dip it in your hot chocolate and it’s heaven. Although these are pretty good just as the spoon too, fun for a special snack :)

Hooray for hot chocolate!
