Enjoy a relaxing weekend baking in your Orillia apartment with the help of your little ones. Let them measure and mix the ingredients and enjoy the mouth-watering baked goods that will result. For those who are looking to satisfy their sweet tooth, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together some easy recipes that you can recreate and savour with your family and friends.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
If you’re looking for a dessert that is cool, chewy and sweet, these ‘BBC Good Food’ ice cream sandwiches are the solution. Kids can help create and enjoy these chewy American-style biscuits on their own, or they can squish vanilla ice cream in between two of them for an even better dessert. Keep the kids busy in the kitchen by assigning them to crack the eggs into a separate bowl and sandwich the cookies together with ice cream. Before you start this recipe, you’ll need to drop by Metro located at 70 Front Street North for ingredients that include butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream. The store is a 10-minute drive from both the Noble Tower Apartments and the Executive Suites.
Candy Cane Lollipops
Get festive with your dessert options by making these ‘Artful Parent’s’ Candy Cane Lollipops. Get the kids to help unwrap the mini candy canes, place them together to form a heart shape on a parchment-lined sheet and add lollipop sticks at the bottom. It is suggested that parents melt the chocolate chips, either bittersweet or semi-sweet, and poor the mixture into the candy canes with a spoon. Drop by Foodland located at 80 Fitton Road East to pick up chocolate and any other ingredients you may need to create this sweet and crunchy snack. The apartments at 391 Barrie Road and 118 Creighton Street are less than 15-minutes away from the store. For the finishing touch, let the kids add some rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips to the candy canes. Before you or the kids bite into this sweet snack make sure you let the chocolate harden in the refrigerator for a few hours. Your kids will love making (and eating) these treats and you can always use an extra pair of helpful hands in the kitchen.
Cheerios Christmas Tree
These adorable Cheerio Christmas trees are a great baked good to make with your kids. Be sure to get creative when you decorate them and display them on your dessert table at home or the next holiday dinner party. Food Basics located at 975 West Ridge Boulevard sells all the ingredients you’ll need to make these tasty bite-sized trees. The store is a five-minute drive and 15-minute walk from the Orillia apartments.
Satisfy your cravings for sweets and enjoy a relaxing night at home by baking up a storm in your apartment. Located at 391 Barrie Road and 118 Creighton Street both of Williams and McDaniel’s Orillia apartments are fitting for first-time renters of all ages.
