Top 5 holiday treats to make over break

Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats
Peppermint is one of the most desired flavors of the season, and when paired with a Rice Krispie Treat, the result is a quick, easy and delicious snack that tastes like Christmas feels. Either purchase a box of premade Rice Krispie Treats from the store or make a batch from scratch. Melt warm chocolate over the gooey treat and sprinkle crushed peppermint candy canes. Chill the treat in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and enjoy!

Spiked Eggnog
The sweet, nutmeg-y flavor of eggnog is one that you can find at any and every holiday get together. If you’re not a huge fan of the milky mixture, try spiking it with different types of alcohol, and you may find your attitude towards the drink quickly changing. Rum, bourbon and brandy all blend perfectly with the drink, but feel free to experiment with different combinations. The spiked cocktail is bound to improve the drink’s taste and the party’s atmosphere.
