Yum! Hot Cocoa in the Winter is the best! It's especially good if you have a cute little cocoa station to make it even more fun! It makes it very convenient for anyone who wants a hot cocoa to serve themselves anytime. Everything you need all in one spot.
This is the very first time I've created a cocoa station in our home and we love it.  It's located on the left hand side of our sink in the kitchen.  It's a perfect spot for all the yumminess we need for hot cocoa to be for the winter.

Just use what you have, but I used lots of my Pioneer Woman collection dishes to house each ingredient and also just to decorate with.  Of course I added some of my vintage collection in there too.
The tiered tray holds most of the goodness.  On the top I have cinnamon and sugar, marshmallows and candy canes.  On the lower tier I have some Land O Lakes specialty cocoa mixes, Pirouline Cream Filled Wafers and extra mugs.  Those cute white mugs are from Dollar Tree and yall, they were only $1 each and they are nice heavy mugs.
We also have the soft peppermint sticks (they melt quickly in the hot cocoa), chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon sticks, and a few varieties of mint candies.  I got most of these edible goodies at Dollar Tree.
Off to the side there is a large bowl with a variety of extra hot cocoa packets.  We keep the cream topping in the fridge of course, but its there if anyone "needs" it! *wink*
Do you keep a cocoa station out in the Winter months? If so, what ingredients to keep on hand?  I'd love to hear your ideas.
If you're hosting a holiday party this year, you may want to create a cocoa station of your own.  I think this would be cute for any Winter holiday party, baby shower or bridal shower.  Cocoa stations are just plain FUN to say the least!

    My mom used to fix a gallon jar of dry cocoa mix and we used it all winter. By the way Decatur Tx is where I was born and my dad's family lived there.

      Hi Margaret! That's an awesome idea! We've only lived here since 2011 but we love it! :)
