This little cocoa bar has been so much fun! And with 3 kids using it....messy too :) My friend, Theresa, made one and I was inspired to do one too. It looks so festive on our table that I am going to leave it up all month. It is the PERFECT centerpiece for these winter months!
We use homemade cocoa mix.
5 1/2 c. powdered milk
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/4 c. baking cocoa
1 c. dry non dairy creamer
Mix and store in an airtight container.
To serve mix 1 c. boiling water with 1/3 c. dry mix.
Toppings! Chocolate chips, broken candy canes and micro marshmallows. Not mini...micro. They are so tiny and fun! My friend got us a bag of these from a local Amish market. They are perfect for cocoa!
Chocolate dipped spoons. These are super easy to make. I use the big bars of melting Ghirardelli chocolate that you can get at Sam's Club. I dip the spoons so that both the front and back are covered, and then dip them again, scooping up the chocolate into the spoon so that the bowl of the spoon is full. Then I lay them on waxed paper, add sprinkles and let dry.
The kids crack me up when they put their cocoa together. They don't just use one topping, they usually feel the need to use a little of ALL of them. Peppermint, Chocolate Chip and Marshmallow Cocoa. Yum. We'll have to sell that idea to Starbucks ;)
