People Are Making Christmas Hot Chocolate Stations And They Look Incredible
While the modest hot chocolate might be an all-year-round kind of treat, there's something about Christmas that gives us the ultimate excuse to load on the whipped cream, douse it in gingerbread syrup and throw on half a packet of marshmallows for good measure.
If this sounds like you, then you might want to add a Christmas hot chocolate station to your festive decorations this year.
The latest trend sees hot chocolate fanatics dedicating a 'station' - or in some cases an entire wall - filled with everything you need to make the most Extra hot choc ever.
We're talking syrups of all different flavours, candy canes, chocolate chips, large cookies, gingerbread houses, chocolate coins and even Bailey's for a boozy twist - basically, whatever you fancy.
We've rounded up some of our favourites for a little inspiration. If you don't have one of these in your home this year, you're missing out!
Sammi Colclough created an amazing hot chocolate station, complete with a framed 'get your hot chocolate here' print (so cute).
And it's got *all* the treats, including white chocolate buttons, crispy M&Ms, chocolate coins and mini gingerbread men.
We're also obsessed with Laura's station, which features a cute Santa initial mug and plenty of that all-important whipped cream.
Meanwhile, Jayne Bostock Tapper's 'Mrs Claus' Bakery' station features some seriously impressive toppings. We're talking entire cookies, whole bars of chocolate, candy canes and marshmallows.

There's even a cute selection of spoons for each jar as well as different types of cocoa.
Some even have festive straws, embellished with little penguins, polar bears and Santas. And we're obsessed with Emma Lynch's Nutcracker themed Christmas trays.
One woman even dedicated an entire wall to her hot chocolate station. Just look at the incredible display!
With a vintage style 'warm up at the hot chocolate bar' sign at the very top, Tracy Habbershaw's wall features individual shelves filled with all kinds of goodies.
From four types of syrup, to a bottle of Bailey's, gingerbread men, candy canes and chocolate toppings, the wall is also decorated with a festive garland *and* a mini Christmas tree made from Celebrations.
If that wasn't impressive enough, there's even a selection of Christmas themed glass mugs. Now this is dedication to a hot choccie station!
We're also particularly impressed with Angie Rouse's station - just look at that fake snow!
Angie bought all her jars and mugs from Home Bargains and Wilko, and even added cute labels to her jars of chocolate lollipops, candy canes, cookies and marshmallows.
We know exactly what we'll be rustling up this weekend!
