Who loves the cold weather 🥶 this time of year? New England has been so frigid lately. Especially at night when it is under 5 degrees. Even though I dislike the frigid weather I love it at the same time. When I don’t have to go outdoors into the cold New England weather I’m all for it. Plus I like having cozy days on the couch. Especially, with a hot cup of cocoa by my side.

We just moved into a new house which I’m so excited about. I love the fact that we have an open kitchen which helps compared to having a cramped one previously. So having a hot cocoa bar was on my list to create ASAP! Especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner.

That’s why today I am sharing this super simple hot cocoa bar. Especially if you’re having a Galentine’s soirée or even a something the whole family can enjoy. Who doesn’t love hot cocoa with the best M&M’S® Chocolate Bars.


How To Create A Simple Cozy Hot Cocoa Bar

Step One: Pick where you want your hot cocoa bar to be. You can create a hot cocoa bar anywhere in your home. The entryway, kitchen, living area or even your den. Just make sure it is a place everyone can get to. All you need is a few items to get everything looking great for a great setup.

Step Two: Gather your items you need to set up. Glasses/Mugs, milk, condensed milk, sugar, marshmallows, chocolate chips, whipped cream, peppermint oil / extract and of course chocolate. Anything you would like to add. I love using M&M’S® Chocolate Bars.

Step three: Set everything up: Warm the milk, add the chocolate to your cocoa and add in the extras. Everyone loves the extras. hot cocoa bar setup

Step four: You always need something to compliment your hot cocoa. That is why I love the variety of M&M’S® Chocolate Bars. They come in all my favorite flavors: PeanutMilk Chocolate, and even Crispy. Right now you can grab them at your local Walmart. You can find them in your candy aisle as well as the end caps when checking out.

    We love hot chocolate! I’ve only ever added marshmallows to it, but I think it would really like with peanut M & M chocolate bar.

    As a fellow New Englander (NH) I can definitely relate to wanting something yummy and warm on a frigid day!
    We’ve done hot cocoa stations before but it’s been awhile. Your post makes me want to plan a sledding party with a hot cocoa bar after!!!
