Hot Chocolate Station - free printable to make your own!



Baby, it's cold outside!
It's been sunny and blue skies this week in Portland, Oregon, but frosty cold.
I decided it was time to set up a hot chocolate station for the grandkids...
and I enjoy a cup now and then myself!


It's as easy as gathering your supplies and finding a nice tray or tote to set them in.
In my vintage berry tote I put:

 -6 of my favorite Christmas mugs

-some packets of instant hot chocolate,  the kind that you simply add boiling water to
(our oldest granddaughter  knows how to make it herself with these packets)

-a large jar filled with Nesquick chocolate milk powder that you add to hot milk
 (I'm not fond of the packaged hot chocolate so I prefer this)

 -some spoons for stirring

- a jar of mini marshmallows

-a jar of Bob's soft peppermint sticks
 (these melt into the hot chocolate and add the best peppermint flavor!) 


Then I made a little Christmas-y looking Hot Chocolate sign.
Here's a copy for you to download and print.


Now all that's left to do is top it off with a cute bow and enjoy!

  2. Love your hot chocolate station. Wish I could stop by and join you for a long chat and a cup of chocolate! Where do you find such nice ribbon? I've been to two Michael's Crafts and all they have are very formal ribbons. You must have a special place I've not found yet. Love to know your secret if you're willing to share.
