Snowy winter weekends get pretty boring for my kids (I mean you can only play outside in the freaking cold for so long, man), and I’m always trying to come up with projects they can do inside. My daughter’s favorite is a DIY hot chocolate bar. (Okay, maybe it’s my favorite too.)
I’ll be honest with you guys: you can find a million variations of this on Pinterest, so this isn’t some original idea I was brilliant enough to concoct. But there’s no harm in sharing our ideas, right?
Here is a list of our go-to items. (And when we’re out of them, we use whatever we have on hand.)
- hot chocolate of your choice
- whipped cream
- mini cookies
- chocolate chips (butterscotch or caramel work too)
- peppermint sticks
- chocolate syrup
- paper straws
My kids love putting together their own hot chocolates. It’s like a drinkable art project that tastes really delicious, and they are here for it.
Is it cold where you are? What are your favorite hot cocoa toppings?
