Sunday Dinners: Hot Chocolate Bar and $40 to Abe's Market Giveaway

I hosted a baby shower on Friday. In the last year I've hosted a summer salads and breads shower as well as a soups and cornbread shower. So this time I decided upon a chocolate theme. I made O'Henrys and littered the table with numerous types of candy. I also invited guests to bring a decadent chocolate dish to share. To go along with the theme I served a Hot Chocolate Bar. Here are the super easy crock pot hot chocolate recipes that I used:

White Hot Chocolate for a Crowd

2 cups whipping cream
6 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips

Place all ingredients in crock pot. Stir. Cover and cook on low 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted.

Hot Chocolate for a Crowd

Same recipe and directions as above. The only difference is that you substitute the white chocolate chips for milk chocolate chips.

I then set my kitchen island up with the following mix ins and toppings:
  • whipped cream
  • cinnamon
  • cayenne
  • caramel sundae syrup
  • chocolate sundae syrup
  • hazelnut syrup
  • vanilla syrup
  • caramel syrup
  • mini chocolate chips
  • mini marshmallows
  • rainbow sprinkles
and this masterpiece:

It was a wonderful shower to honor a wonderful friend. I'll post the fun games we played tomorrow. Right now . . .

 . . . we have another giveaway!

One lucky reader will win a $40 gift certificate to Abe's Market. I ordered the amazing marshmallow pictured above from Abe's Market and I LOVE it. A chunk of this lovely plush fella melts perfectly into a steaming cup of hot chocolate or tastes great on a s'more. The 2 lb marhsmallow makes such a whimsical statement as well as a conversation piece at a party.
