The holidays came up so fast this year. I am loving every minute of it so far but sometimes, you just do not have the time to make a homemade snack or meal. Thanks to Walmart, they have Cracker Barrel Cheese Trays. They are a more balanced and better-for-you snack. I find that sometimes, it is easier to grab a fun snack like this and go! You can find them in the Dairy section at Walmart. 

  I had my 3 nieces over on Saturday and the Cracker Barrel Cheese Tray was the perfect snack while we made our Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments. I had a blast making a fun holiday craft with my nieces and enjoying the Cracker Barrel Cheese Tray as the perfect go to snack. We tend to go to a lot of Holiday parties around this time of year and sometimes we just do not have the time to actually make a home made snack. Thankfully Walmart has saved us by having the Cracker Barrel Cheese Tray. I have found that it is good to keep the cheese tray on hand. Some days we end up entertaining and when we have a cheese tray at the house already, we can just get it out of the fridge and it is ready to go. There is no need to even have to arrange it on a tray, it is ready to go. 
The Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments are super easy to make. 
All you need is :
*Ornaments with Removable Tops
*Hot Chocolate Packets
*Add ins: Red sprinkles, green sprinkles, mini marshmallows, mini white chocolate chips and whatever else you like in your hot chocolate.
(You can find plastic ornaments at most craft stores.)


 Take the tops off the ornaments and, using the hot chocolate packet, pour in the hot chocolate mix. 

Then add the mini chocolate chips for a layer between the sprinkles, marshmallows and the hot chocolate mix.

Add the sprinkles. I found that turning it while pouring them in helped with the layering.

Add the mini marshmallows in and top off with a few more sprinkles. 

Put the top of the ornament back on and add a nice ribbon for a final touch.  

Lastly, enjoy a yummy cup of hot chocolate.

I had a blast making this Hot Cocoa Ornaments with my nieces. It is something the entire family can make, you can give them as gifts or even hang them on your tree. My nieces plan on giving them to their parents are gifts for Christmas this year. Make sure when you do this DIY craft, go the Walmart and get the Cracker Barrel Cheese Tray. It is perfect for snacking during the craft, doesn't make a mess and all you have to add is some crackers! Make sure you grab the Cracker Barrel Cheese Tray for you next holiday party you attend or host. It is a quick and yummy snack that everyone enjoys.
