Cool Creamy Treats Add Fun To The Season

(NAPSA) – Adding a few fun twists to some favorite holiday treats can be a terrific-and tasty-way to ring in the season.

For instance, trade in the cocoa mugs for minichurros served with delicious hot cocoa-flavored ice cream. It swirls sweet, fluffy marshmallows with a creamy, chocolate ice cream-and with only 120 calories a serving-that’s sure to please your little helpers. And jolly minicones bursting with peppermint ice cream will be a favorite of Santa’s elves at any age.

You can find creamy takes on holiday flavors such as eggnog, pumpkin pie and peppermint from Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream. The festive limited-edition lineup features half the fat and 1/3 fewer calories of regular ice cream but doesn’t skimp on taste.

Instructions
  1. Preheat 2 inches of canola oil in a 12-inch frying pan to 375 F.
  2. In separate dish, mix sugar and ground cinnamon and set aside. In a 3-quart saucepan, add water, brown sugar, salt and butter. Heat to good boil. Remove from heat and add the flour. Mix it in until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and vanilla together. Then add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until well blended and eggs are completely mixed in. Fill a pastry bag with the churro dough and attach a large, star-shaped tip.
  4. Test your oil by placing a small amount of dough in it. The dough should bubble up; otherwise, your oil is not hot enough. Once the oil is hot enough, squeeze some dough with the decorator tool into the oil, about 3 inches long.
  5. You should be able to cook 6-8 churros at a time. Cook them about 3-4 minutes, turning once. Once churros are golden brown, place them on a paper towel-covered plate to absorb excess grease. While still warm, roll each churro into a round dish with the cinnamon and sugar mixture; coat well. Serve with a frosty mug of Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Hot Cocoa Light Ice Cream.
Notes

Makes 2 1/2 Dozen Churros.
