3 New Year’s Treats
Wow, can you believe this year is almost over? 2015 is just a few days away. One of my resolutions each year is to eat healthier but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate holidays! I wanted to share some treats that I’m thinking about making to ring in the New Year.
2015 crescents! — My family loves the Pilsbury crescent rolls and this is an easy one. Just grab a can of Pilsbury crescent rolls, unroll the dough. Cut each rectangle into four strips. Shape each strip (four strips) into the New Year (four numbers, 2015) and bake! These can be eaten plain or dipped in marinara sauce or a sauce of choice.
Chocolate top hats — Melt some chocolate and dip a Ritz cracker and a marshmallow. Place the marshmallow on the cracker. After creating all of these, melt some vanilla bars (or whatever color you’d like) and write “Happy New Years” or “2015” or any greetings for an easy snack.
Clock cake & cupcake numbers — I am most excited about this one. I’m baking one large cake and at least 12 cupcakes (but probably more because we love cupcakes). I will frost all the cakes white and use a piping bag of chocolate to draw clocks hands on the large cake as well as write numbers 1 through 12 on the chocolates. Then placed in the clock shape, I will easily have a clock that we can eat during the countdown!
