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!

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!
