How to make the best hot chocolate bar

Parenting

After a day of tobogganing, kids will love customizing their own drinks at a DIY hot chocolate station. It’s the perfect family activity to keep you warm and cozy!

Hot chocolate bars are the ultimate combination of sweet treat and family activity. Budding baristas can experiment with flavours and toppings, like crushed cookies, candy or chocolate. Or how about a caramel drizzle? (Adults, may we suggest a couple of shots of espresso?) Add some cute mugs and a couple of baked goodies et voilà!

These are our top picks to stock your station. (P.S. If you’re looking for a great gift, a hot chocolate charcuterie board is the sweetest idea!)
