Upgrades to Holiday Classics with Rodelle

Two Make Ahead Holiday Brunch Recipes


We partnered with Rodelle to bring you two holiday brunch recipes that will become family favorites! Cocoa Twists with Vanilla Glaze and Overnight Hot Cocoa French Toast Casserole.

This holiday season take the guess work out of entertaining and serve one of these make ahead brunch recipes brimming with Rodelle Baking Cocoa and aromatic Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract. First up in our holiday baking arsenal are these stunning hot cocoa inspired twists. Think the cinnamon buns you know and love with the addition of European Dutch-processed Rodelle baking cocoa. It's 100% cocoa and contains one of the highest percentages of cocoa butter available giving it a superior chocolate flavor. The twists are topped with a creamy vanilla glaze adding just the right amount of sweetness to balance the rich dark chocolate filling.

The best part about this recipe? You can make the dough and shape the twists the night before serving. Just let them rise again the morning you want to enjoy them, and pop them in the oven just before guests arrive. The scent that fills your home while they bake will be irresistible.

Everyone needs a good Overnight French Toast Casserole recipe, but this one is GREAT! How can you go wrong by starting with a cocoa and vanilla custard and topping the casserole with a chocolate pecan streusel!
This recipe is super simple. Whisk up the custard, coat the bread with it, then let everything sit overnight in the fridge. Make the streusel topping and place that in the fridge as well. In the morning, add the streusel and pop it in the oven. You will have a rich and chocolatey brunch to feed a crowd in about an hour!
