Homemade For The Holidays

Once a month I get together with some other consultants to discuss business. We do some training from the home office, practice recipes, and give each other business tips. We enjoyed our meeting this week! I wanted to share with you what we practiced making. It was so fun, and will make a GREAT holiday show! These are fun things to do with kids, or hand out to neighbors, or have for a holiday party!

The first recipe we practiced was Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops. Here is picture of what mine looked like... be nice, the problem is more my lack of photography skills.

Here are some tips for Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops
• To keep the lollipops secure on their sticks, dip all of the brownie and
about ¼ inch of the candy cane into the melted bark.
• If desired, lollipop sticks or stick candies can be substituted for the
candy canes. For appearance sake, they look better if all the sticks are the same length.
• White almond bark can be substituted for the chocolate bark.
• From The Pampered Chef® Festive Holiday Desserts Recipe Collection.

The next recipe we tried was the Raspberry Mousse Cookie Nepoleans. I didn't get a picture of these.

Tips for Raspberry Mousse Cookie Napoleons
• The cookies will absorb moisture from the mousse, making
them soft and cakelike. These are three layers, so they are large. We had to eat them in sections. • You could use other flavors like strawberry, mint, or tangerines/ orange.

One of the consultants pre-made Peppermint Fudge Cookie Sandwiches for all of us to see and try. Sandwiching a creamy peppermint patty between warm brownie cookies creates an irresistible sweet treat.

I definitely had a fill of chocolate (and peppermint) that night! Boy was it delish!

I am so excited to do these recipes at a class or show!
