Cocoa Bombs and Holiday Cookie Decorating
Adult activities and classes / Taste -
Adult - Fall 2021
Homemade cookies and treats are always a thoughtful gift around the holidays and throughout the year. Each class recipe is one of the instructor's personal secrets that she is sharing and will help you feel like a professional baker. Individuals or families will have fun making hot cocoa bombs and decorating pre-baked sugar cookies. Tips for freezing these treats will also be shared. You will need a hot cocoa bomb silicone mold for this class.
- A week before class, you will receive a recipe packet containing ingredients and supplies for the hot cocoa bombs, 2 of the instructor's favorite sugar cookie recipes, and what will be needed for the Royal Icing and for decorating. Participants will bake their choice of sugar cookies before class using the recipes provided and be ready to create the Royal Icing, and decorate cookies along with the instructor.
- That adult supervision is required if children are participating. Thank you.

recipes and reinventing traditional ones using the Instant Pot, which is taking her pressure-cooking to
