Hot Cocoa Bar

This morning, my co-worker, Danette, and I set up a Hot Cocoa Bar at one of the daycare centers we serve as a special thank-you to the staff there. Using a bit of inspiration from Pinterest and the great sites here, here and here, we decorated cups, made cookies, dipped spoons in chocolate and set it all up on a table in the cafeteria.

Jana designed a cute little invitation for us, complete with folding cards and toothpick banners to label the different toppings available.

We set everything up on a table in the cafeteria and invited the teachers and assistants to join us as they brought the children to breakfast. Danette brought her Keurig, which made heating the water so easy, and we provided cookies, a breakfast casserole and toppings to go with the hot cocoa.
I decorated cups to look like snowmen.
Danette stumbled upon lots of fun, flavored marshmallows at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and quickly snatched them up. We added mint morsels and candy bits, along with the chocolate "stirring spoons".

Despite the fact that the weather was quite warm outside, everyone seemed to really enjoy the morning, and even more importantly were touched that we actually put together something special for them. It certainly warmed my heart!
