If you don’t have time to bake on short notice this holiday season, keeping some baked goods you can freeze may save the day. You can make a large batch of cookies, brownies, cakes and even pies in your Elora apartment ahead of time and thaw them out when you need them. To ensure that residents have dessert recipes that can withstand their time in the freezer, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together a list of holiday desserts your taste buds will love.
Chocolate Cherry Heart Cookies
For those who enjoy the combination of chocolate and fruit, these ‘My Recipes’ Chocolate Cherry Heart Cookies offer the perfect amount of both. Using bittersweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate will help cut down on the sugar in these cookies and will result in a deeper flavour. Try doubling the recipe, so you’ve got a few extra of these 94-calorie cookies in the freezer for those times when you crave sweetness. Visit L & M Markets located at 169 Geddes Street to pick up the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cherries, vanilla and any other ingredients you will need. The store is just two minutes from the Elora Apartments and three minutes from the Executive Suites.
Flourless Chocolate Vanilla Marble Cake
The ‘Fine Cooking’ Flourless Chocolate Vanilla Marble Cake has a chewy fudge texture mixed with a creamy cheesecake taste. This means one small slice will probably fill you up quite easily. For the vanilla batter of the cake, you’ll need cream cheese, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. For the chocolate portion of the cake, you’ll need bittersweet chocolate, eggs, butter, sugar and vanilla. You can pick up all these ingredients at Sante Natural Emporium and Grocer in downtown Elora at 130 Metcalfe Street.
Raw Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches
For those who are fans of milk’s favourite cookie, the ‘Damy Health’ Raw Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches are sure to be a hit. Imagine a rich, chocolaty ice cream treat and you’ve got fabulously sweet dessert. After you’ve created your dessert of choice, be sure you’re storing them properly by following the instructions in ‘the kitchn’s’ Tips for Freezing Holiday Desserts article.
Located on 120-122 David Street East and 143 Kertland Street, Williams and McDaniel’s Elora apartment are an ideal option for those who are currently looking to rent and escape the business of the city.
