Candy Cane Hot Cocoa Bar

Nothing reminds me more of Christmas than candy cane hot chocolate! It is one of my favorite Christmas treats and I always buy a big cup of it when I am out Christmas shopping.   So…I thought that it would be fun to set a little hot cocoa bar up in our house…

I purchased the jars and basket awhile ago from DecorSteals and have been waiting to do something with them.  They worked perfect for holding crushed candy canes, hot cocoa powder, and marshmallows.

I printed out some tags {you can download mine here}, matted them on scrapbook paper and tied them around the jars with some baker’s twine.

I had a lot of fun creating the little chalkboard sign.  I painted a wooden rectangle that I purchased from Michaels with chalk board paint and used a chalk pen to draw on the details.  It’s kind of addictive!

I love this candy cane hot cocoa bar!  So fun!
Now all that’s left is to sit and enjoy!

    I can’t even say how much I loved this idea! This is so pretty, love every detail that went into it ^^
    Now since it’s Spring where I live if I were to attempt this, I had to make it more warm weather appropriate haha I’d have to use tea and herbs, the candy can stay : 9
    Oh and I’d have to keep a bucket of ice cubes at hand : )
    Seriously, great idea Jenn xx

    Good Morning Jenn, What a lovely idea. The weather is cold and miserable at the moment, so this is an ideal time to set up my own cocoa station. I will be out and about hunting for lovely containers like yours. My little nephew will love to make cocoa when he visits. I found you via Yvonne at Stonegable and have become a new follower. Best Wishes from England, Daphne

    This is such a fun idea and the jars and basket are AMAZING! I see similar containers at the store but I can never think of a craft to use them for – something like this would be great!

    LOVE this super cute idea!! It would be an awesome seasonal gift, as well! I have a question though… Is it difficult to scoop out the hot cocoa powder from those jars? It seems like the mouth of the jar is too small to get a spoon in there. However, it could be an illusion.
