How to Set Up a Hot Chocolate Bar
Before we get into the DIY ideas, let’s begin with the basics of how to set up a hot chocolate bar.
Your hot chocolate station doesn’t have to be in the kitchen. We set up ours in a nook in the dining room. Find a space that is convenient yet out of the way from the day to day activities, especially if you are going to keep it up for a few months.
You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you want. We have a holiday vibe for ours, and we keep it up all winter long.
