I am still in disbelief that it is already December. I feel like this has been the fastest year we have experienced but maybe its all in my head. After all, they say that time seems to speed up as we age. Anyway before I digress into a discussion about time and age, lets talk about the holidays.
Christmas is a few days away and most of us will have family and friends spend time with us at home. You can treat your guests to a fun breakfast on Christmas morning by hosting a holiday coffee and hot cocoa bar. Imagine steaming cups of coffee and hot cocoa in your PJ’s, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a winter morning
Setting up a holiday coffee and hot cocoa bar is very simple. You can use a small spot on your kitchen counter or use your dining table. Set the bar with anything you fancy, the possibilities are endless. I like bagels and cream cheese so I usually get a bagel bundle from Bruegger’s Bagels. The bundle comes with a dozen or half a dozen bagels and your choice of cream cheese. This time of year Bruegger’s has the seasonal cranberry orange bagels which are absolutely delicious and together with the strawberry cream cheese, its a combination made in heaven.
My coffee and hot cocoa bar is very simple but you can go all out by including toppings like whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate chips. Your guests can have fun making holiday hot cocoa treats while others drink coffee. A few decorations are a great way to create a festive mood in the spirit of the holidays. I used red paper cups, napkins and plates with Christmas prints.
A coffee and hot cocoa bars is not only for Christmas morning; you can do it after dinner or any winter occasion. This would be a great idea for a kids’ birthday party as well. Just be creative and have fun with it.
