Holiday Frozen Yogurt Bark

Holiday Frozen Yogurt Bark

Looking forward to making this with the grandchildren.

1 1/4 cups natural light whipped topping (like the kind by So Delicious or Truwhip)
1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
Dash salt
1/8 tsp. red food coloring
1 candy cane (or 3 mini candy canes or 3 starlight mint candies), crushed
1 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line a 9-inch pie pan with parchment paper. (A springform pan works best).
In a medium-large bowl, combine whipped topping, yogurt, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and salt. Mix until smooth and uniform.
Spread mixture into the pan, and smooth out the top.
Place food coloring in a very small bowl.
Dip the back of a spoon or a knife into the food coloring, and swirl into the yogurt mixture.
Top with remaining ingredients, and lightly press to adhere.
Freeze until solid, at least 2 hours.

Successful Holiday event at Newsies

Mary, Bonnie and Nancy

Thanks to Chairs Mary Parker, Bonnie Newhoff, Nancy Evans and Dianne Linthicum, the Family Holiday Party at Phoenix Theatre was a big hit this year. Held on Saturday, December 9, the theatre was full of excitement, holiday cheer and beautiful decorations.
Chair Nancy Evans commented, "The Silent Auction sold 8 trips! The Winspire trips included:  2 trips to Charleston, SC,  4 trips to Nashville, TN, 1 trip Masters Golf practice round Augusta, Ga., and 1 trip to New Orleans, LA. The reception was unbelievable with its assortments of sweets and savory plus cheeses. The raffle had high quality items. The Newsie play was outstanding!"
