Holiday Treats

There's something about this time of year that makes me giddy. I hate the cold so it's odd that over time it's the time that I look forward to the most. I love when all the Christmas lights get turned on, stores are brimming with sales and nights are spent cuddled up by the fire. For me, the season kicks off the minute I spot the first "red cup" from Starbucks. I haven't been drinking coffee for months, but something about this first spotting sends me into a tailspin of anticipation.

My current Starbucks beverage of choice is a Peppermint Hot Chocolate - 1 pump peppermint, 2 pumps chocolate - otherwise it's too overpowering.

Next on my holiday tradition list is the Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Bark (Obviously, I've got a thing for peppermint chocolate). I've tried them all. Nothing compares. It's expensive but oh so worth it. I've been known to eat an entire tin in a day, so this year I'm taking it with me to visit my family so I will need to share.
