10 Sweets to remind you there is No Place Like Home for the Holidays! No matter who you are or what you do everyone in the whole world has one thing in common- when that final clocking out comes that marks the start of the festivities every single bone of us heads on home to spend the Holiday season with the people who matter most. Those who can’t get home often spend whole days trying, because home is where the heart is… and what better way to celebrate that than with the gift of sweets?
Sweets and Christmas time!
The Holidays and sweet things have a long history together, and it is for that reason that we tend to associate certain sweets for certain occasions. When we think of Christmas time or Holiday Season we think of candy canes, of mint hot chocolate and rich, dark chocolates that we use to decorate the tree. We think of mint and cinnamon, of warm, enticing vanilla and of mulled spices brewed on an open fire. We think of sugared chestnuts, or rich almond flavors and of walnuts cracked by hand.
Here at L’Orenta’s Gourmet Nuts and Goodies we specialize in the delightful, and produce such mouth watering winter inspired festive flavor mixes that you won’t be able to eat them without being transported home. So without further ado let’s take a look at those warming winter sweets that are enough to summon the family home for the season!
1 – Malted Balls; Mint Cookie Flavor
For a Festive snack with a difference try this inspiring blend of sweet and mint. These treats use the sweet and yummy taste of malt mixed with a cookie texture and the refreshing mint you expect to find at holiday time. Not only do they go perfectly with your cup of hot chocolate; they also make an excellent Holiday gift idea for those that you love best!
