Hot Cocoa Bar

Nothing beats a night in with the girls! This week I hosted our girls annual Secret Santa. We cooked dins in, and lingered around the table over a few bottles of wine and appies. Before opening gifts we indulged in the Hot Cocoa bar for dessert. My bf as clever as he is recommended using the coffee maker to make the hot cocoa. I used water instead of milk and added hot chocolate powder to the pot. Once water heats up and filters through, stir and serve immediately. Easy as a flick of a switch and once ready we had many delights to choose from to fill our cup of cheer. See the ones I used listed below.

Shaved Chocolate
Vanilla, Chocolate, Cappuccino Pirouettes
Cinnamon Sticks
Oreo Chocolate Sticks
Chocolate Covered Peanuts
White Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes with Sprinkles
Whipping Cream

Officially 10 days left till Christmas and nothing melts my heart more then time spent with the ones we love. Hope you all have a fun filled festive weekend doing whatever it is that makes you smile. XO, B

PS The mugs in the pics were purchased at POSHSHOP in Whiterock. Given one as a gift I had to have 3 more to complete a set. They also just launched their new website online so please check out the link above to get more info. A great place to pick up hostess gifts or anything left on the Christmas gift list this Holiday Season, happy shopping!
