Hot chocolate bars requires lots of goodies and mixings to put in your hot chocolate or to nibble on.  Drinks syrups, homemade marshmallows, candy canes, and cookie sticks work great.  I chose chocolate, peppermint, and vanilla homemade marshmallows and vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut syrups as my main mixings.  I made my marshmallows from scratch but you can purchase them here, if you would prefer.

You can download the labels here.   Use your Cricut®Explore Air 2 Machine™  to print and cut them on sticker paper, or just print them out and cut them by hand.  I like to use Avery® 8 x11 Shipping Labels as sticker paper.

I used tin cans and metal buckets to hold supplies.  They matched the galvanized steel drink dispenser perfectly and they were a great price, especially the cans. ;)

In the far left of this picture, on the bench, is a “people feeder”.  They work great for setting candy around a party.  It’s a chicken feeder filled with M&M’s®. One of my craft idols taught me to do this years ago….
