    @Miss Redhot: Oh man, I completely missed that line in your OP, sorry!  But this is a fabulous idea!  If you’re adding toppings, can I suggest cinnamon to sprinkle on?  And if you’re having any kiddos, maybe some sprinkles?  Ok, now I really want hot chocolate!

    Milk I think is so much better….creamier and more milk chocolately taste.

    I would do the water kind, and have it already mixed in some kind of thermos or something. Or use hot water and have people mix it. Milk would be expensive and riskier with the curdling thing.

    This sounds so delicious! I always used water growing up, but my husband introduced me to the milk and omg it is soooo good. So I vote milk, all the way ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would have both options for those guests that are lactose intolerant. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have quite a few of them in our group!

    I am having a hot chocolate bar as well. I know milk tastes better but we do have at least 3 people that i know of that are lactose intolerant so we are sticking with water. We are however not going to put in as much water as the instructions call for just to make it taste a lil stronger.


    Here are some ideas that I am doing:

    -Plastic spoons dipped in chocolate (both white and dark)

    http://www.torani.com/home/products Syrups -I am having caramel, hazlenut, and raspberry

    -Marshmallows in the shape of snowflakes (snowflakes run throughout most of my decor) http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/marshmallow-snowflakes

    -At the bar I am having Bailey’s Irish Cream and Peppermint Schnaps


    I will let you know how my hot chocolate bar goes and post more pointers later!

    How are you serving it?  Already mixed in one of those large beverage warmers?  I am thinking of doing the same thing, but can’t quite figure out the logistics…

    You need a milk alternative.  Soy, perhaps?

    I think if you go w/skim milk, it meets both worlds of milk and water

    I voted milk as people may have specific tastes in terms of milk (i.e. whole, 2%, 1%, skim).
