Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bar

Did you know that January 31 is National Hot Chocolate Day? And of course, there is no better way to celebrate than with a ¬†Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bar! This time of year is all about chocolate, candy, hearts, and love. And who doesn’t love a delicious cup of hot chocolate? Here is some simple decor from the Dollar Tree that I used to make the hot chocolate bar look just a little more festive.


I used traditional Valentine’s Day colors, pink red and white, to decorate and make it bright and cheery. Then I used my glass serving dishes, so the candy, cookies, and decorations can be the stars of the show. There is no right or wrong way to do a hot chocolate bar. My family likes marshmallows, whipped cream, and sprinkles and because it is the season of candy, I also served Sixlets, peppermint sticks, and sugar cookies!


The follow your heart bin came from the Dollar Tree and it is the perfect size to hold the packets of hot chocolate. And what do you think about the heart mug? It came from Target and then I covered it in heart felt stickers. I love it!


It’s so much fun to get creative and use serving dishes in impractical ways. I used the juice carafe for the marshmallows, so they can be poured right into the mug. I also took the small bucket with the hearts on it and filled it with ice for the whipped cream to sit in and stay cold.


Putting something like this together for your next party or small gathering does not have to be hard, or expensive. Most of these items I already had on hand, or I purchased at the Dollar Tree or Target Dollar Spot. And don’t you love when your food can also serve as decor? I love things that serve more than one purpose!


Now you can go make your own Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bar! Pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate, top with marshmallows and whipped cream, and add a peppermint stick. Oh, and don’t forget the sprinkles! Enjoy!
