Sweet Holiday Treats

Categories:Blog, Chocolate, News, Seasonal

Thanksgiving has come and gone and you have probably noticed the holiday decorations in stores and around your neighborhood. It’s the time of year again, and the holiday season is upon us. Lucky for us, the holidays are full of sweet, and sinful, things.

Ginger Bread Houses are not just for the kids. Pick up a kit in the store or bake your own.  From the frosting to the candy decorations tell me one person with a sweet tooth that wouldn’t want to live in those houses!  Make sure to decorate with all your favorite candies, it’s makes snacking on it a lot more fun.

Truffles can be found all year round, but they seem a little more special this time of year.  Choose from the traditional varieties or splurge on Champagne Truffles.  It’s hard to resist eating just one.

Toffee is another traditional confection that seems to be more popular during this time of year.  This addicting candy is a great gift this time of year for the serious candy lover.

 From candy candies to peppermint cocoa to peppermint candies this flavor is a winner in the colder months.  It just seems to be able to warm you up on those colder days.

Skip the store bought ones filled with tiny piece of chocolate and make your own! Select from your old favorites and mix in something new to try.  Most chocolate stores will sell you single items so you can mix and match for the perfect combination to count you down to the big day.

Whether you are putting them out for Santa, are part of a Cookie Exchange, or just love to dunk them in a cup of milk cookies are big part of the season.  From sugar cookies to chocolate chip cookies, the possibilities don’t stop.

Don’t forget it’s better to give than receive, so make sure you are sharing your favorite holiday sweets with those that are near and dear to you.  Sinful Sweets offers holiday gift baskets and custom orders.  Visit us at 901 Penn Avenue or at sinfulsweetspgh.com for our selction of gourmet chocolates.
