Do you like giving or receiving homemade  gifts for the holidays?  I know I do!  I just adore mixes in a jar and so I decided to make my own version this year using ornaments!   Last year I made some Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments and my family and friends went crazy for them!!!  This year I am making them a little different with some Gingerbread M&M’s that I found at Walmart!   There are two different ornaments… one for cookies and one for hot cocoa that use the Gingerbread M&M’s!   I think it worked out perfectly for this cute and easy craft!

So what do Gingerbread M&M’s taste like?  They are like regular M&M’s only slightly thicker and have the perfect amount of Gingerbread taste to them.  There is a fine line between a good Gingerbread flavor and too much Gingerbread flavor and these are just right!

  This Gingerbread M&M Hot Cocoa Mix is so decadent… lots of chocolate flavor with a hint of Gingerbread. Yum!

I love how the M&M’s melt in the hot chocolate!!!

Gingerbread m&m Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments!

Gingerbread m&m Hot Cocoa Mix Ornaments!


  • 1 packet of hot cocoa mix mixed with 1/4 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp cinnamon, any brand or variety will work as long as you include the right amount of water in your instructions, affiliates
  • 2 Tbsp . of sprinkles, affiliate; Christmas colors look great
  • Mini Marshmallow Bits, affiliate; use only the hard kind that you find in a container by the hot cocoa mixes at Walmart
  • Gingerbread m&m's... about 2 Tbsp. Enough to fill to the top
  • Craft supplies:
  • I recommend food safe ornaments. If that isn't a concern, affiliate, you can find them here .
  • Funnel that will fit in the ornament for filling
  • Ribbon in Christmas colors to tie at the top, affiliate


  1. Take the top off the ornament first then take the funnel and place it into the ornament. Use the Hot cocoa first and pour it in. Make sure to shake the hot cocoa to a straight layer before going to the next layer. Next use the sprinkles and again make sure that it is even before going to the next layer. I sometimes use something small like a skewer to push things around if they are not even. Add the marshmallows next then the m&m's. Put the top back on the ornament. You should not need anything to keep the mixture inside the ornament if you use the ones I called for, but if you use a different kind then make sure to place a piece of foil at the top before inserting the ornament top. It is not recommended that you hang these ornaments after they are filled. Use ribbon to decorate the top and include directions to make the hot cocoa. Your directions should state that the mixture should be combined with the exact amount of water or milk that the hot cocoa calls for on the packet.
