Gather Your Essentials
Assemble the key elements for your hot chocolate bar:
- Our single origin hot chocolate flakes create the perfect, rich, frothy hot chocolates. Choose a couple of different %’s so that people can create their perfect hot chocolate with a grade that suits their taste!
- Choose an assortment of mugs, cups, and glassware that complement the autumn theme. Think rustic, earthy tones and charming patterns. There’s nothing like a warming hot chocolate in a cute mug.
- Include whipped cream, marshmallows, cinnamon sticks, and chocolate shavings for a touch of decadence.
- Provide a variety of flavor options like caramel syrup, peppermint extract, or a dash of chili powder for those who crave a hint of spice.
Warm and Filling Additions
Enhance the experience by offering warming add-ins:
- Stock a selection of milk options including dairy, almond, oat, or coconut milk for a dairy-free choice.
- Spices and Flavorings: Set out a selection of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. These can add depth and complexity to your hot chocolate.
- Brewed Coffee: For those who love a little caffeine kick, provide freshly brewed coffee to make a delightful mocha blend.
