Hello and welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop! On this seventh day of Christmas, we are sharing our hot cocoa bars. This was a really fun project to work on! I have always wanted to make a hot chocolate bar but have not done it. Now I had an excuse to make one. My boys absolutely LOVED it! While I was working on it, they kept asking when the cocoa bar was going to be ready. 🙂 We are not coffee drinkers around here so we don’t own a lot of mugs. The mugs we did have were… what else? Disney mugs!!! The mugs were actually the motivation behind my Disney inspired hot cocoa bar.
You can find more pictures of my hot cocoa bar below and at the bottom of the post, check out all the other great hot cocoa bars from the many talented bloggers we have joining us for this blog hop.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!

I have seen lots of pictures of hot cocoa bars on Pinterest and it seems like the best ones had different levels to them. Breaking up the items at different levels gives visual interest to your hot cocoa bar. We have a three tiered tray that I knew would be perfect to use to give some height and levels.
I love using patterned straws for parties and special events. They are an easy way to add some color into your party decorations. We used some for our son’s graduation in his school colors and they worked out great!
Pint sized mason jars work perfect to put all your ingredients into and they still look fantastic!
These little wooden spoons worked perfectly to add some toppings to your hot cocoa. I love it when things look great but are functional as well!
Aren’t these mini mason jars so cute! They were a gift from my MIL and I love them. They are super cute to use as decoration.
I made up some Hot Cocoa Peppermint Cookies to go on our hot cocoa bar. They just seemed to fit into the theme. 🙂 They are delicious! Come back tomorrow for the recipe!
Here are the Disney sketchbook mugs that inspired this Disney themed hot cocoa bar. They were a gift from my sister and we have had them for years so I was honestly surprised that they have them available to buy on Amazon! If you want your own set, click the link above. Aren’t they great? I think they are super cute and the perfect size for hot chocolate.
I found some cute diner style squeeze bottles for condiments that I used for the caramel and chocolate sauce. The nice thing is that these are reusable! I used some wrapping paper leftover from last year to decorate them and the whip cream bottle.
How do you like the hot chocolate sign? It is actually an interchangeable farmhouse sign that Mr. Wonderful made up for me. You can see it in action as well on my burgundy and mustard fall mantel. I will be sharing a tutorial for it after the blog hop with these two designs as well as additional designs. Keep a watch out for the tutorial!
We collect Jim Shore Disney figures and this big Mickey was the first one we ever got. We found him on our first Disney cruise in 2009! I have not seen him available to buy since then so I am glad we got him when we did!
Are you inspired to make your own hot cocoa bar? It is so nice to have all the ingredients right there in one spot so you can have some hot chocolate anytime you like! 🙂 I will be back tomorrow for the eighth day of Christmas with my cookie recipe!
