While it may seem like the holiday season is months away, in blogger world we get started on our holiday projects early (in fact, I’m busy testing some thanksgiving recipes this week to prepare!). One thing getting my in that holiday mindset is the fact that a recipe I worked on for Family Circle Magazine, featuring Torani Syrups, is out on newsstands today! I’m flipping through the pages and getting inspired for the coming months. Grab a copy and check out my sweet holiday creation inside, a Chestnut Praline Frappe!I combined the seasonal flavor of Torani Chestnut Praline syrup with cold brew coffee make a delicious frappe blended with ice. The drink was topped off with homemade whipped cream flavored with the Torani Chestnut Praline Syrup for a special touch, and top with freshly chopped nuts and a festive holiday straw. The chestnut praline whipped cream also makes a great addition to other seasonal holiday desserts; try the flavored topping on a slice of pie! Get the recipe below and bookmark it for the holiday season:
