Hot chocolate bars are the ultimate combination of sweet treat and family activity. Budding baristas can experiment with flavours and toppings, like crushed cookies, candy or chocolate. Or how about a caramel drizzle? (Adults, may we suggest a couple of shots of espresso?) Add some cute mugs and a couple of baked goodies et voilà!

These are our top picks to stock your station. (P.S. If you're looking for a great gift, a hot chocolate charcuterie board is the sweetest idea!)
