I have been wanting a coffee bar for quite some time now. We love drinking coffee and we drink it daily. We also love serving it when we entertain guests.

It’s so fun having all the supplies necessary for a great cup of coffee and dessert all together in one place. It makes entertaining easy, too, because it is already assembled and ready when guests stop by.

How To Make A Farmhouse Coffee Bar

Putting together a farmhouse style coffee bar or coffee station is so fun and easy. I really enjoyed making mine! You’ll need a simple cabinet or hutch to serve as your coffee bar and some basic necessities to outfit it.

You’ll definitely need your favorite coffee maker to begin with. Then, add in some other elements like pretty coffee cups, sugar and creamer dishes, flavored syrups and sweeteners to add to the coffee, stir sticks, a serving tray, coffee and some sweet treats.

I love using a tiered tray to organize all of these elements, and it takes up very little space for the amount of storage it provides. Choose a galvanized metal tray to add interest to your coffee bar. I placed mine on top of a wood tray to add dimension.


coffee bar baskets


Inside your hutch, organize your coffee bar supplies with pretty baskets, trays and canisters.

Store extra coffee, coffee pods, to-go cups and cookies in these organizing containers.

For the holidays, you’ll inevitably want to pair your coffee with cookies and chocolates!

Recipe For Snickerdoodle Cookies

I love snickerdoodle cookies, and they are just what I want around the holidays. I wanted to kick mine up a notch, and hiding a DOVE® Chocolate inside them was just the way to go. I used DOVE® dark chocolate and sea salt caramel, but this would be just as delicious using either of the two other flavors, DOVE® dark chocolate and DOVE® white and dark chocolate swirl. They couldn’t get much easier to make either, so don’t be intimidated by how amazing they look and sound. They are quick and easy to whip up!

Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a mixer, combine all ingredients and mix well.

Then, roll a one-inch ball and flatten it in your hand. If your dough sticks to your hand at all, then chill it in the fridge or freezer until it is easier to work with. Place a DOVE® Chocolate in the center and roll the dough up around it. Make sure it covers the chocolate completely or it will melt and ooze out of the cookie.

Then, gently roll the ball in your cinnamon sugar mixture and coat the outside in cinnamon sugar.

Place the dough ball on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and repeat until you have 6-8 dough balls on your cookie sheet.

Bake for 13 minutes or until edges crisp and tops begin to crack. Allow to cool for a minute or two, and then remove and place on a cooling rack. These taste great warm from the oven or cooled, so feel free to serve them to your holiday guests either or both ways!

When you break them open, you’ll find delicious DOVE® dark chocolate and sea salt caramel nestled inside the cookie. No matter your choice of DOVE® chocolate variety, you can be sure the edges of this snickerdoodle are perfectly crisp and the center is chewy and delightful. It’s such an amazing pairing that I doubt you’ll ever go back to eating a plain snickerdoodle cookie again!

  9. Now Sarah, I am quite surprised. How, as a mother of 4, can you leave the kids out when it comes to your ‘coffee bar’. Add an extra special element for them (or adult guests that don’t drink coffee) by including hot cocoa and mini marshmallows. I believe it can be found in individual packets, pods, and even canisters at most grocery stores. Just a suggestion…I hope you find it useful.

    1. Great suggestion! I have actually added a tea kettle to the coffee bar as well and the kids can make their cocoa with it as well. Thanks for sharing your tip!

  10. Mine turned out perfect i used peanut butter Dove chocolate and it came out Deelliiicious Love this recipe.

    1. Oh I am so glad to hear that!! You’ve got my mouth watering over here. I’m going to have to whip up a batch again!

  11. These sound super delicious and I thank you for your recipe. I am planning to make them tomorrow to send along to relatives because I already have a package of Dove SeaSalt Caramel Chocolates and the other ingredients. Your instructions and page are clear and well-designed and I am hopeful the they will turn out delicious. I have to admit though that I am a bit worried because I don’t understand how there can be reviews when most of the people who have posted did not even make the recipe? This is not a comment about your site in particular; a lot of baking sites are the same way. But before making something for an important event, it is great to be able to access lots of reviews written by people who have tried and rated the recipe, rather than lots of people who think it sounds good but haven’t actually baked and tasted it. I hope you will see this comment as what it is meant to be: a simple request for objective reviewers that will help me decide whether or not to bake a large batch of these for my extended family and colleagues. 🙂

    1. Thanks for your feedback! Often people review without commenting and I can’t help the people who review without making. Hopefully some will see your comment and leave their feedback. I’d recommend making a single batch to test out and see if you enjoy them before making a large batch. And please come back and share once you do 🙂
