To make your gloomy winter cozy a bit, a cup of hot chocolate is unbeatable. This special drink is named to be hot, so it is meant to be hot for sometimes. If especially you are throughing a party at outside-then it becomes tough to keep this hot preparation hot for longer. Before diving into deep, consider one matter. Why do you have to keep the hot chocolate hot for a long time? Does it for an outsider party? Or does it for friends get together inside your home? Whatever the reason is-Scroll down here and know how to keep hot chocolate warm for the party and for other purposes!
How to keep hot chocolate warm for the party
The first process is using a Crockpot or a thermos-flask (you can call it a thermos carafe). As you are asking about the process for a party, that means you are in a need of keeping hot of a large-scale hot chocolate. Inside of your home or outside of your home, two different situations come in front of us when we prepare hot chocolate and try to keep it hot for a longer time.
However, see the below procedure to keep the hot chocolate hot for a long time!
Use Thermal flask
For keeping a larger volume of hot chocolate warm for a party, you may need a larger thermos that is made of stainless steel. Be sure the thermos has a double wall so that it performs fantastically! Stainless steel thermos is perfect to keep the hot chocolate warm minimum for 8 hours. Sometimes more than this time.
As this special container is suitable to hold larger amounts, so you can easily use this thermos as the on-the-go hot chocolate warmer for a party, or a get-together with your friends or family.
As you are searching help for with a larger amount of hot chocolate, so the coffee carafe larger in size could come to your help in that case. Another advantage of this container is, they are handy to carry from one place to another.
You can customize it for better performance, just add a perfect coffee dispenser with it (pick the larger one, at least one which can serve 16 per server) and enjoy serving hot chocolate even to an outsider party.
Keep Marshmallows on the top of the hot chocolate
Yes, you read what I meant! Marshmallows could be a very as-usual addition to your hot staff. But believe me, a bunch of floating marshmallows on the top of the hot chocolate just act as a heat insulator for the insider hot things.
Whether you are making a single or double layer of marshmallows on the cup top, it stops the insider heat to go out. Thus, the hot chocolate remains hot for longer. But the fact is if you are trying to keep the hot chocolate hot for a party, then using marshmallows never could be a logical choice.
The crockpot is a slow cooker; you can use it to make hot chocolate and to keep the hot chocolate warm for a long time. And as you are talking about the party, therefore a crockpot is a great means, it is larger. So can hold a larger amount of hot chocolate at a time. The only cons of using Crockpots are, they need an electrical outlet connection to run.
Use Styrofoam Cups
These cups are a modern addition to keep the coffee warm for a long time. You can use these Styrofoam cups to keep the hot chocolate warm for longer. In winter, these cups are incredible. Most coffee shops use these cups to serve their coffee.
However, Styrofoam can prolong the cooling time, therefore the hot insider chocolate remains a warm maximum of 1 hour. For better performance, use a double cup of Styrofoam, so that the hot chocolate remains hot for a long.
But keep one thing in your mind, using Styrofoam, or Marshmallows only is for temporary and immediate use. You cannot use these means at an outsider party, especially if the party is placed far from your home.
In a Nutshell
Since we are talking about how to keep hot chocolate warm for a party, these must be meant for a larger amount of hot chocolate. My suggestion is, to use a larger coffee carafe with a dispensing pump. You also can go with a larger thermos flask-the doubled SS layer version of this container also is very good to keep the hot chocolate hot for a couple of hours.
That’s all thank you!
