I just wanted to do a quick post and let you know of a fun and easy idea that the kids have been doing for the last few years.  Of course in Utah we get chilly winters, so there’s a lot of hot chocolate drinkin’ around here!

……………………………….

I was tired of getting out all the hot chocolate fixin’s every time they came in from playing outside, so we decided to make a hot chocolate station.  Its perfect because everything is in one place and the kids can easily make there own drinks without having to get everything out…and put it back away.

We keep ours pretty simple with standard stuff.  Hot chocolate, candy canes and of course marshmallows.  You can get more fancy with syrups and chocolate or whatever you may like.

We just placed everything in glass jars with scoops.  If its gonna be out on the counter all winter – it needs to look good!  Some spoons and candy canes were added to mason jars and then everything is kept on a large white platter.

Of course, i sneak some yummy hot chocolate in too.  I like mine with marshmallows and crushed up candy canes!  Yum!

    That’s a perfect idea for our Canadian winters where it gets REAL cold. Why didn’t I think of that?! It’s on my to do list for tomorrow. Cheers and Merry Christmas:)

    What a great idea, but my favorite part of the post is your backsplash. Silver is my favorite color and I must have those in my kitchen! Do you mind sharing where you got them? Thanks so much.
