Did you have the chance to tune in for the Krusteaz “Seize the Holidays” Live Webcast with Catherine McCord?  If you didn’t have a chance to watch it, I highly recommend it because   If you didn’t, you can check it out online and  watch the video clips, as well as get some great tip ideas from Catherine McCord. Catering also shared great baking tips like how a simple box mix can be used to create your own signature holiday treats.  

  You can watch in online at Krusteaz “Seize the Holidays” page. 

I had the opportunity to watch this event with my sister-in-laws, mother in-law and grandmother in-law.  It was funny enjoying delicious treats, as learning great tips!  We also made some fun Holiday Snowman Pancakes. 

 I received a Pancake Gifting Set which included pancake mix, and yummy ingredients like M&M’s, graham crackers and Craisins to make a wonderful gift idea using Ball® brand jars.  This gift is easy to do and fun to give.  All you do, is start with Krusteaz pancake mix and add in a layer of your favorite mix-ins and in a snap, you’ll have a colorful and creative layered gift! Add a rubber scrapper and a dish towel for the perfect gift.  

I decided to make pancakes at our event to showcase what you can do with your Pancake in a Jar.  It was fun using the mix to make delicious Krusteaz holiday pancakes! 

You can use your mix-ins of choice.  We used graham crackers, recess pieces, and cranberries.  We crushed up the graham crackers for the scarf, used cranberries for the face and recess pieces for the buttons.  These were a big hit.
