We’re suckers for a pretty spread so why not take your holiday sweets to the next level with a hot chocolate charcuterie board?
We’re going to walk through how to set up the ultimate hot chocolate bar, in the style of a charcuterie board.
Start with homemade hot chocolate, get a good charcuterie board, arrange all the fixin’s and serve it all up in festive mugs!
Make Homemade Hot Cocoa
If you’re making a hot cocoa charcuterie board, of course you need to start with some good homemade hot cocoa!
While you could just reach for a packet of Swiss Miss, we like to make homemade cocoa using real pieces of chocolate.
Use a Good Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board
Start with a nice charcuterie board or a platter.
We like to use a platter with raised sides since many of the hot cocoa bar items are small compared to the larger items you’ll find on a traditional charcuterie board.
Add in small cups for fine items like garnishes and sprinkles.
Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board Items
A solid hot chocolate bar has more than just the traditional mini marshmallows!
When making a hot cocoa charcuterie board reach for accompaniments like:
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate Chips
- Crushed candy canes
- Shredded coconut
- Homemade brownie bites
- Pirouline cookie straws
- Junior Mints
- Gingerbread cookies
- Meringue cookies
- Peppermint coated almonds
- White chocolate covered pretzels
- Peppermint mini marshmallows
Add Adorable Hot Cocoa Mugs
Another way to make your hot chocolate bar extra festive is to provide cute mugs!
We also love a cute themed mug for the holidays.
