Festive Eats & Treats

By Brenna Stefanov & Emily Angyal

Thanksgiving Break is now over, but every Mount girl knows that the next thing to look forward to is Christmas Break. In anticipation for the Christmas season, we have come back try more holiday themed treats.

First, we made simple, no-bake peppermint oreo truffles. They were so simple to make and they ended up tasting great.


All it takes is crushing the oreos, mixing them with the cream cheese and peppermint extract, and then rolling them into balls and dipping them in white chocolate. For more details on how to make them, click here: https://www.twotwentyone.net/peppermint-oreo-truffles/

While they were setting in the fridge, we decided to make a holiday-themed drink to go with it. it took a few minutes, but we were able to whip out a batch of Sparkling Cranberry Cider. The inspiration for the drink is here https://life-in-the-lofthouse.com/sparkling-cranberry-cider/ .


However, we ended up switching up the ingredients and amounts based up our personal preferences.

Both recipes were super easy and ended up tasting great! They’re perfect for a Christmas themed potluck, family dinner, or to reward your homeroom for when they bring in their Robinhood can goals. They’re both easy, but impressive recipes that anyone can create.
