There's no better way to beat the cold than with a cozy cup of hot cocoa. Make this classic cold-weather drink even more memorable by surprising your family with a tasty spread of their favorite toppings and treats laid out on a hot chocolate charcuterie board.

A hot chocolate station is an entertaining way to put a wintery spin on the grazing boards you’ve come to know. The combinations for delightful hot chocolate creations are endless—it’s no wonder these hot chocolate boards have become so popular. Perfect for hosting, starting a new tradition around the holidays or just a fun way for your kids to warm up after a day in the snow, a hot chocolate grazing board is sure to be a hit.

The Setup

Consider having several different types of hot cocoa powders available to provide as many combos as possible. You’ll be amazed by how many hot chocolate flavors are out there.

Set up a hot cocoa station with milk or hot water to get everyone started with their drinks, then have the board next in line for them to scoop toppings and snacks. For the board, you can use a festive winter plate, serving tray, or a large cutting board. Lay out cookies and candy to add snacks to the board to go along with your drink. If there’s a theme you’re going for, use that as an opportunity to organize the hot chocolate board into creative designs. Don’t forget to take pictures before you start digging in!
