If you follow this blog, then you know that I like to rotate different “bars” throughout the year.

So far, I have had a snow cone bar, hot chocolate bar, and  Italian soda bar.

Since I have changed my dining room over the last year, I went ahead and decided to change a few things for my hot chocolate bar from last year.

This year, I added a few fun finds to my hot chocolate bar.

The first find are these cool spoon/straws!  They are pretty basic – just a circle “spoon” attached to a straw.  I love them because you can stir up your hot chocolate and then use it to drink as well.

It is functional as well as fun.  It is FUNctional!!

Sorry, couldn’t resist!

Anyway, these straws have been a big hit with everyone who has tried them.  I run them through the dishwasher, although they did come with a cleaning straw, which is nice.

They would be a little tall for a standard mug, but since these mugs are tall and slender, the straws are perfectly proportional.

The second fun addition are these mini marshmallows!!!

How cool to be able to add more of those cute little mini marshmallows that are perfect for hot chocolate!

I was able to buy both the spoons and the mini marshmallows online (Amazon).

And last but not least, I put the Torani syrups on a lazy susan.

I am actually using a Wilton turntable that is intended for cake decorating.  I would prefer the look of a wooden lazy susan, but this is what I had!

This makes it very easy to choose the syrup addition that you want.

The nice thing about repeating bars every year is that you can add different elements each year to keep it exciting for your family.

And by only adding or changing one or two things each year, it is more affordable.
