Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar
Are you having family and friends over for the Holidays? Maybe a Christmas Morning gathering? A Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar is the perfect addition to any Holiday event or get together! This post will show you fabulous party ideas, delicious recipes, & FREE Printables. I am a COFFEE fanatic. Everyone who knows me is well aware of my coffee obsession. My husband likes to tell me I have a creamer obsession instead (Wink Wink). The International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie and Peppermint Mocha Holiday Creamers are AMAZING! I am a huge fan of the Frosted Sugar Cookie – The sweet taste of home in a rich, creamy swirl inspired by cookies and frosting. My husband on the other hand loves the Peppermint Mocha – A rich taste of chocolate meets festive peppermint flavor. Both are a great addition to any Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar!

Setting up a Holiday Inspired Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar is easy! I chose to use all white platters and cake plates because that is what I have on hand at my house! You can use any platters, plates, and mugs you have at your house! I went to my local Walmart and purchased my International Delight Creamers, Hot Cocoa Mix, Toppings, and ALL of my delicious food items! If you walk around your local Walmart Bakery you will find fabulous baked goods at affordable prices that you can add to your Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar.
The International Delight Holiday Flavors are in a bin in the middle of your local Walmart by the refrigerated milk section.
This Bundt Cake was one of the DELICIOUS Baked good items we purchased at Walmart. I know a lot of moms who feel like they have to make everything from scratch, or pay a lot of money to their local bakery! Sometimes both options are fabulous, but other times you may be in a hurry and trying to save money. That is when Walmart is a huge help!
Disposable coffee cups are the perfect way for guest to fill up their favorite hot drink! You can add a little something extra by using our Free Printable Party Logos to adorn your cups.
The Powdered Donuts and Peppermint Fudge Cookies were also purchased at Walmart, and then stacked on a simple white cake plate.
You can use the Free Printable Tent Cards to label the food and drink items. You are able to edit your own text items on the Tent Cards once you download below! These awesome large thermos were also from Walmart, and found over by the Coffee Pots … for under $20 each they were a steal!
My sweet husband created this super fun “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Chalkboard Wall for me! He is learning to free hand, and doing great so far! I have created a Free Large Poster Printable for those of you who are not the free handing type!
The Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookie Coffee Shots are DELICIOUS and so cute … Don’t you think?
Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookie Coffee Shots – 3 Easy Steps
1.) Purchase the mini mugs at Walmart in the Holiday Entertaining Section.
2.) Mix in the International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie Creamer with a splash of Coffee.
3.) Add a Mini Cinnamon Roll from the Walmart Bakery section!

Peppermint Mocha Coffee & Hot Cocoa Stir Spoons
Ingredients & Materials
-Microwave Safe Dish
-Something for mixing the chocolate
-Peppermint Mocha International Delight Creamer
1.) Lay out your ingredients and materials. Pour your wafers into a microwavable safe bowl. Start with about 1/2 of a cup.
2.) Place in Microwave for 20 seconds at a time until your wafers are soft enough to stir with a spoon. Be careful not to burn chocolate. Mine were ready to stir after 40 seconds.
3.) Add two tablespoons of your International Delight Creamer and stir. It will be runny, and you need to stir until it starts to thicken.
4.) Mix in a few more wafers.
5.) Microwave as before until soft to touch and then stir.
6.) Dip your spoons one by one into the mixture. It will be runny and more liquid than just chocolate. I used a paper towel to wipe of the bottom and sides of the spoon.
7.) Rest on a plate and then sprinkle with crushed up candy canes if desired. Put in freezer for about an hour.
Your guest will be able to pour Hot Cocoa or Coffee, and add their favorite toppings! Then they can use the delicious Stir Spoons for some extra flavor!
International Delight also carries single serving coffee creamer packs! They are easy to use and do not have to be refrigerated. This makes it great for traveling, and a quick morning cup of coffee. I am not the most energetic morning person, and a delicious cup of coffee is the only way I can start my morning! We have a rule in our house …. No Coffee No Talkie! My favorite International Delight Coffee Creamer Flavor is the Caramel Macchiato. It is devine, and allows me to save money by not buying expensive chain store coffee all the time!
International Delight has a fabulous CONTEST going on right now!! But HURRY it ends in just 2 days! You could wind a $5,000 Holiday Brunch! Head over and SHARE what brings the spirit to your Holiday! CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE AND ENTER!
