Christmas Treats –
There is just something about this time of year that I love and that’s all the wonderful food that you can find in shops and I just wanted to share some of my favorite treats that are 100% needed to have around the house!
Quality Street Chocolates – These remind me of my grandma, she would have tins and tins of them in her house and they are just so lovely, my favorite of all of them is the strawberry creams but there is never enough.. that or I eat them all! They do boxes of just one flavor and I firmly believe they need to make a just strawberry cream box.. I would buy that in a heartbeat!
Lindt Chocolates – Introduced into the UK a good few years ago I have loved these wonderful truffle chocolates, they melt in your mouth and are just so yummy, plus the hollow characters chocolates which started with the golden bunny at Easter and now the Santa and reindeer! They do a white chocolate version of the truffles which are to die for!
Chocolate Pennies – No stocking is complete without a little sack of these, they seem to have gotten bigger since I was a child but these are the best things to nibble on around Christmas time, these also remind me of my grandma, who would get me a sack of them to enjoy when we visited her.
Peanuts – These are so weird, nuts have always been a known snack for Christmas time and these days they are being created with such random flavors, this packet wasn’t as nice as you might think, these along with Jacobs mini cheddars are another one of those snack items that makes Christmas time for me.
What are your favorite go to christmas treats that you just need in the house this time of year, I am ridiculously nostalgic this christmas and really missing those family members who arent with us anymore so I guess I am trying recreate certain smells and tastes that I so lovingly remember from my time with them.
Until next time
