Holiday Baking

(NAPSA) - Experienced cooks know that a few simple garnishes - a dollop of whipped cream or a carefully placed mint leaf-can raise a simple dessert from grand to gourmet. This holiday season, you can create show-stopper desserts with a simple recipe for elegant, delectable sauces made with classic candies.

Using some of one confectioner's most popular candies as the base, the sauces can be made in a matter of minutes with a few simple ingredients. How you serve them is up to you, but not even your guests will know how easy the sauces are to make.

Imagine warm Pixie Sauce drenching a scoop of ice cream with its heavenly combination of chocolate, buttery caramel and crunchy pecans. Drizzle Mint Meltaway Sauce on warm-from-the-oven brownies. For a lighter finale, try coconutty Trinidad Sauce atop fresh fruit. Eggnog Cream Sauce served over cheesecake, ice cream or buttery pound cake makes a smashing-yet-simple seasonal dessert.

For something very different, ring in the New Year with a fondue party featuring your favorite sauces and bite-sized dippers of angel-food caie, butter cookies, melon or strawberries.
