I know this hot chocolate board looks like it was alot of work, but the hardest part was opening all the wrappers. The board was ready to go in under 10 minutes and there is no baking or cooking involved. Just lay everything out on a board or tray and leave it out.

Tip – If you set this out the night before cover the tray with plasticwrap to try and keep the marshmallows, cookies, and cakes from getting hard. Otherwise place it out shortly before you know the little ones will be up.
