Family holiday traditions are one of my favorite parts of the season! But the holiday season usually means hectic, busy times and running around from store to store. Well, thank goodness for my Walmart+ membership! It has been a lifesaver this year!
This post is sponsored by Walmart but all opinions are always my own and completely honest. For more information, see my disclosure.
This week we enjoyed one of our favorite family holiday traditions! Gingerbread houses and hot cocoa! I was able to save time and money by ordering online with my Walmart+ membership.
Walmart had everything we needed for making slow cooker hot cocoa and decorating gingerbread houses. All our supplies were delivered to our front door with no delivery charges ($35 order min.

Gingerbread Houses and Slow Cooker Hot Cocoa
Now, on to gingerbread houses and that delicious slow cooker hot cocoa. I’ll tell you what you’ll need so you can make it for your family!
Let’s start with the cookies. I usually have to get enough gingerbread houses for everyone to participate, and that can get pricey, so finding this Gingerbread Village was a score! I did also get a couple of full-size houses and some extra cookie kits. I got this stocking-shaped cookies decorating kit and they were fun and easy for the kids to decorate!
The kids had a ball building the houses and decorating the cookies. We all laughed as usual when comparing our creations to the designs on the boxes! Nailed it!
As for that yummy slow cooker hot cocoa, all you need are a few ingredients!
- Cocoa powder – ¼ cup
- Condensed milk – 1 can
- Heavy Cream – 2 cups
- Vanilla Extract – 2 tbsp
- Chocolate Chips – 1 bag (11.5 oz)
- Milk – half gallon
You will, of course, need a slow cooker! I absolutely love my slow cooker, which is also from Walmart. I love it because it’s so pretty, it can sit out on the counter when not in use.
To make the hot cocoa, you simply add everything to your slow cooker and cook on low for 2-2.5 hours. Make sure you whisk it frequently. Top it with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
