I am so happy that it is the holiday season again!! 🙂 The weather is finally getting cold, decorations are going up, and people start exchanging presents. It truly is the best time of year. When I think of winter the holidays, I think of cuddling in front of fires and watching Christmas movies with my friends and family. The perfect thing to add to family gatherings is amazing food. Here are my main holiday treats that I am obsessed with!
Nestle Rich Milk Hot Chocolate– This is extremely sweet and rich but does not have any marshmallows in the packets. I love the flavor packed into this hot chocolate mix and it only has 80 calories!
Egg nog! I don’t know how others feel towards egg nog but I absolutely love it! Every year when it gets to be December, I beg my mom to go the store to get egg nog. For those of you who don’t know, egg nog is a creamy milk like drink that is made of eggs. It is amazing but putting whip cream on it makes it better. 🙂 In the third picture below is my favorite brand I have tried so far.
Peppermint Bark is probably my favorite holiday treat of ALL TIME. It is the perfect combination of sweet and minty. My mouth is watering just thinking about this. The peppermint candies embedded in the white chocolate make the perfect crunch in every bite. White chocolate, which usually accompanies the peppermint, is so rich and sweet and I absolutely love it! Bottom Line: you need to have peppermint bark during the holidays!
So I only get Starbucks if I’m with my friends or if I’m in an airport, but based on what I have gotten before, I would definitely recommend their Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino and the Java Chip Frappuccino. I especially love the Java Chip Frapp because there are bits of blended chocolate chips at the bottom that you can chew on. I know it is cold outside and all but I don’t care; I always get a frappucino in one of these flavors. It will brighten your day. 🙂
Now I understand that there are a lot of calories and fat in some of these treats. If you are trying to avoid unhealthy treats this holiday season, here are three things you could buy instead.
Peppermint Chapstick that tingles and cools your lips! Chocolate Lip Gloss! You can get this set of four at CVS for $4.99!
Holiday Collection from Bath and Body Works which is scented in all sorts of fragrances that smell like holiday treats. I have heard that the Twisted Peppermint and Vanilla Bean Noel products are amazing.
Enjoy your holiday season! I want to hear your plans for the break. Where are you going to go or do? Talk to you girlies soon!
