We are so excited to have Carmen from The Flair Exchange share her hot cocoa recipe – perfect for these winter months!

Even though the holidays are over, there are still many reasons to invite guests over and celebrate. Invite friends over for a campfire and hot cocoa party, it’s the perfect excuse to mix up a delicious pot of cocoa! Start by sending out this customizable invite – it’s simple and outdoorsy.

Winter Hot Cocoa Party

Offer a spread of garnishes for your made ahead hot cocoa. Our favorite cocoa recipe is included at the bottom of this post! In addition to large fluffy marshmallows & sprinkles, give your adult guests the option of spiking their cocoa with mini bottles of bourbon. If you’re not into the spiked versions, you could alternatively offer mini bottles of coffee syrups to flavor the cocoa.

Winter Hot Cocoa Party

Store your cocoa in a vintage thermos and keep close for refills.

    This is SO cute! Love the idea of using an old Thermos even if you’re having people over at your home.
