To get into the holiday spirit and strengthen the camaraderie of the Federation's Young Professionals, 10 industry leaders came together to create a handy recipe book titled "Treats of the Season".

The book includes directions and ingredients for several tasty desserts, dressings, and festive drinks including white chocolate bread pudding, sugar plum fairy's beignet pillows and apple cider old fashioneds.

Cel Demers shared the "no-bake Oreo truffles recipe" she uses every year that includes just three ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese and melted chocolate.

"It's important that we all take a break and enjoy each other's company," said Demers, the marketing and product planning director for Spokane Floor Trader. "Time is precious and surrounding yourself with like-minded Young Professionals makes the holiday season even more special."

Andrew Brindley presented his Motor Speedway Holiday Mix that includes white chocolate, corn Chex Cereal, Cheerios, roasted peanuts, pretzels and M&Ms. 

"The recipe for the mix is simple, however it's one that has been in my family as long as I remember, and one that my mother makes each year - even now for me as an adult," said Brindley, who works in project development and strategy for HeHomes. "We are sharing it with all of our trade partners and friends this year as well!"

In addition to creating the book, members came together for a virtual holiday event to play games including trivia and converse with thought leaders around the country.
