Learn how to revamp your favorite holiday treats into gifts for your friends and your health!
Homemade treats are fun to create, inexpensive and make for a delectable surprise during the holiday season. However more often than not, we end up feeling guilty for indulging in just one too many holiday cookies. Skip the new years resolution this year by creating tasty and nutritious versions of those holiday classics. In this class, you will learn the basics of baking substitutions, why we crave sweets and how to create a healthier treat. Leave this class with a booklet of recipes and numerous ideas of how to transform your holiday treats into gifts pleasing to both the palate and eye.
- Make colorful holiday cookies using dried vegetable powders. These beautiful cookies pack more than just a pretty punch.
- Chickpeas make a delicious hummus, but what about in a brownie? Learn how to use a variety of different non-traditional baking ingredients.
- Put those old mason jars to use! Learn how to create beautiful holiday containers out of common household items.
Note: (optional) bring own mason jars to use as gift containers
