One of the favorite corners in my kitchen is my coffee and hot chocolate bar. Using a platter that was a gift from my sis in law, Lanier, I filled it full of things needed for a cup of hot chocolate. Right now my favorite brand of cocoa is Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensations. I love the Santa sugar/creamer set I got years ago. They come out every year to sit on the counter but they look perfect perched on the platter along with demitasse spoons for stirring and packages of Swiss Miss. I found the cute acrylic container that holds our marshmallows at Walmart this year. Since I took this photo I have added some cute Santa napkins to the platter! It looks quite festive as Martha would say! Everything that is needed for a hot chocolate treat is neatly collected in one place. Kendall often likes to take advantage of the hot chocolate bar when she arrives at Nana's house after a busy day at school! As for me, I have an occassional hot cocoa but coffee is still my drink of choice on a cold winter day!
