Twisting Up the Treats

By Sydney Hill

Here are a few ideas to make your favorite treats a little more up to speed with the holidays. With garnish and food coloring, possibilities could be endless!

Egg Nog French Toast

Instead of the regular good old French Toast, try using egg nog to make it even better. Substitute the egg and milk mixture for egg nog, any flavor will do. If you want a thicker mixture, add a few eggs. The flavor is so amazing!

Raspberry/Strawberry Substitute

If you have a recipe that uses fruit like blueberries or blackberries, substitute it with a festively colored fruit instead. The blueberry french toast in the overnight breakfasts article from a few weeks ago just can't be bad with either raspberries or strawberries. Use them as toppings as well for plain cakes or brownies.

Peppermint Sprinkle

Christmastime is a great time for chocolate cakes and chocolate brownies. Why not crush a few candy canes and sprinkle your desserts with them? It's fun, festive, and adds a nice touch of flavor

Food Coloring

This works especially well with little kiddies around. They love colors! Add green or red food coloring to your sugar cookies, popcorn balls, rice krispies, you name it. They'll love it.
