I just realized that I gave the guys that had the least amount of hair on their head the longest beards. ;p Love you Dad & Uncle Ken. ;p
Okay...back to parties people. What's one of the best things about cold Christmas nights? Snuggling up with a cup of hot chocolate! And if you're planning a Christmas party in the midst of the hustle & bustle you want something easy, fast & not too bad for your wallet.
Enter the Hot Chocolate Bar...
Simple treats, great for adults & kids, self-serve drinks & easy.
This was my menu -
Gingerbread Biscotti (made from Gingerbread cake mix)
Mini Grilled Cheese Croissants
Sugar Cookie Peppermint pops
For the Hot Chocolate, I gave suggestions of drink combinations, giving each a name based on Santas reindeer:
Sea Salt + Caramel + Whipped Cream
Rasberry Syrup + White Chocolate Shavings + Whipped Cream
Crushed Graham Crackers + Chocolate Syrup + Marshmallows
Crushed Peppermint + Marshmallows + Whipped Cream
It was really fun & easy to put together. For favors, I made No Sew Sock Mug Jackets & got some cheap white mugs so guests could bring those home too.
But...I'll show you those next Wednesday morning. I know...cruel. I'll also tell you how I made the grilled cheese croissants, gingerbread biscotti, popcorn cones & peppermint cookie pops.
One thing I will tell you is that snowball garland strung above the table???
That's made from cotton balls. I took a needle & ran string through cotton balls.
Let me know if there's any questions you have so I can answer them next week.
P.S. Sorry about the pictures. It was the gloomiest day ever & I couldn't get the lighting right. I was hoping I could edit it to look okay but I still don't like it. :-(
