This Hot Chocolate Bar Party is sponsored by SheSpeaks, Inc. and Just Born, Inc. All opinions are mine alone.
With the weather getting colder the first thing the kids ask when they come in from outside is to have a nice warm cup of hot chocolate. And usually, I pull out my electric kettle and heat up some water and let them each have their own mug. But sometimes you just want to make it special for them.
A fun way to make fun memories with kids in the winter season is to set up a super easy hot chocolate bar party. It is a special treat for the kids, especially around the holidays. And it takes an ordinary cup of hot chocolate and turns it extraordinary.
Not to mention your kids will LOVE it!
So while they are all out playing in the snow, turning their little fingers into icicles, you can easily throw together this insanely easy hot chocolate bar party. It’ll be such a fun surprise!

I personally love the PEEPS Marshmallow Snowmen. I put one in my hot chocolate and call it a snowman hot tub!
Kids will get a good giggle out of that one!
Hot Chocolate Bar Party Chocolate Stirrers.
Making the chocolate stirrers is really easy too!
Fill a jar halfway with MIKE AND IKE Candies.
Gently slide a PEEPS Marshmallow Tree onto a candy cane (held upsidedown). Stick the hook part of the candy cane into the jar of MIKE AND IKE candies, covering up the hook. When you have enough chocolate stirring candy cane sticks, add a little more MIKE AND IKE candies on top to keep the candy canes upright.
Now you just created super fun PEEPS Marshmallow Trees hot chocolate Stirrers! The kids can grab one and use the PEEPS Marshmallow Trees to stir their hot chocolate!
As the Marshmallow PEEPS and candy cane dissolve, the kids are left with a great tasting hot chocolate!
And that’s really all there is to it!
I told you it was an insanely easy hot chocolate bar party! No need to do elaborate decorations. The Marshmallow PEEPS make it festive all on their own.
If you want to take the same idea but use it for a more elaborate hot chocolate bar party, you can also include other fun hot chocolate toppings, flavor syrups, and Whipped Cream Topping. But definitely, keep the fun Marshmallow PEEPS for the classic Marshmallow in the hot chocolate mug! Your guests will love it!
