Last week I shared the hot cocoa station aka hot chocolate bar I put together for the holiday season. As promised, I’m sharing the details of that project with you today. Before you read on, be sure to grab a cup of deliciousness for yourself!
Before I get to the DIY details and source list, here are a few more photos to refresh your memory…

Items I already had on hand:
Glass candle pedestal- Restoration Hardware
Apothecary jar, metal caddy and cake plate- Winners
Hammered metal jug- The Bay
Antique spoons and small pedestal plate were wedding gifts
Snowflake glass canisters- DIY project
Frames for chalkboard and sprinkles shaker- Thrift Shop
To make the chalkboards, I painted the wooden picture frames white, cut a piece of thin wood to fit the opening and painted it out in chalkboard paint.
Before you use your newly created chalkboard, prime the surface by rubbing with a piece of chalk on its side and then wiping with a dry rag. It prevents the first drawing from being permanently etched on the surface.
For the to-go pouches, I simply filled a cellophane bag with hot chocolate mix, some white and dark chocolate chips and a marshmallow and tied it up. I glued ribbon around the cup, leaving enough room to stick the straw through.
