Hosting a party this season? Add a hot chocolate bar to make your party fun and festive. The kids will love it. Maybe even the kid inside of you will love it! Here is a list to simplify your chocolatey party experience.
Do you have a Christmas baby to celebrate in December? We do, and this year due to a season of unexpected life surprises, I did not have it all together to plan his party early like I usually do. I gave him the option to wait and we could do something more fun and pretty. My son did not want to wait until after Christmas to celebrate his party so an impromptu birthday party it was. Keeping it simple, he looked around and said, “we can have a Christmas themed party, look, it’s already decorated!” That’s when we popped on Pinterest and came up with this hot chocolate bar to make it fun.
Birthday parties in Dec can be a difficult task with all the busy of the Christmas season, so I usually like to plan my son’s party a month before or after Christmas. We have even celebrated his birthday party in August when he requested a beach theme. Who says your party has to be on your birthday???
So to make this party as simple as possible, this amazing crockpot hot chocolate recipe by No Biggie made it a breeze. I prepped it earlier in the day so it was ready and easy for our young guests to grab. It was so yummy, and not a drop was leftover!

Chocolate pancakes really have nothing to do with a hot chocolate party, and they really aren’t a cake either, but my son requested chocolate pancakes. Why? I am not sure… but they do remind me of Christmas morning, so maybe they do just work with our Christmas themed party.:) I used this fun oreo based recipe by Kirbie craving as inspiration for our yummy pancake cake.
