Holiday Treats to Impress

When planning a holiday menu, two of the most important elements to consider are cocktails and dessert, of course. Consider a twist on two seasonal staples: eggnog and pie. With a little extra effort, and a pinch of pizzazz, these holiday treats go from mainstream to memorable.

A prominent ingredient in both recipes, raw eggs are safe to use thanks to Safest Choice Pasteurized Eggs. Undergoing an all-natural warm water pasteurization process, the risk of salmonella is eliminated inside the shell, making the eggs the ideal choice for raw and gently cooked consumption.

Elevate your eggnog

Classic eggnog receives a makeover in the delightfully indulgent Caramel Apple Pie Eggnog cocktail. With the sweetness of apple pie filling and the smooth taste of homemade eggnog, the addition of dark spiced rum creates a rich, full-bodied flavor for a satisfying adult dessert drink.

For younger guests, simply omit the rum for a sophisticated, yet fun, alternative to the average “kiddy drink.”

Oh my, what a pie

A holiday showstopper, treat your guests to Chocolate Peppermint Pie.

Featuring a blend of white and semisweet or dark chocolate chips, crushed peppermint candy and whipped cream, the flavors and textures harmoniously combine to create a truly decadent dessert. Use a knife to make decorative chocolate swirls on the pie’s top layer, and you have your very own masterpiece.

During the holidays, and all year round, look for the red circle “P” on the shell to ensure you are making the Safest Choice every time.

Remember, pasteurized equals peace of mind.
