Candy Canes to Stir the Hot Cocoa with a Chocolate Kiss setting in the bottom of your mug. Marshmallows swirling on top of the steaming cocoa.

An antique cigar box (my grandpa smoked cigars) lined with a crisp white snowflake napkin hold a souvenir mug from the Walnut Room at Macy's. My grandma would take me there when I was a little girl. I still go during the holidays to carry on the tradition. 

Mugs filled with memories, characters on the bottom, penguin and polar bears Kraft and winter scenes.

This hot cocoa bar has traditions and memories as its theme. The character mugs were another find of my grandma's which I continued. She gave each of us them when we were young. We had six and one survived our generation. Giving everyone of her great-grandchildren them for Christmas presents on year.  

Milk glass filled with Hershey's Chocolate Kisses, Walnut Room souvenir Mug hold Candy canes and spoons.

The chalkboard was left in my stash of crafts from another project. The milk glass from Westmoreland is a nod to my mom. Chocolate Kisses sit on the center of my parents house with a supply that is never ending.

The I love snow dish is the outside of a dip chiller set. 
Bar Cart washed in the light from the sun feels as warm as the hot chocolate made from the bar.

My first attempt at Chalkboard writing didn't turn out to bad.  Metal tea light houses sit on the bottom shelf of the Ikea Hack into a bar cart.

Follow the pictures, shop your house, off to the grocery store and your hot cocoa bar will be a hit in your home too.  Love it, Inspired, 💖 Pinnable Image is below.
