Blogmas Day 13: Wintery Snacks & Drinks to Try This Christmas!

Hi loves! I’m sorry this post is going up a little late, but I have had some of the busiest last couple days of the whole semester! Finals and completing my last design projects have kept me completely preoccupied, but I’m determined to keep on top of Blogmas because I flipping adore it!  I haven’t done a food haul for this Christmas season yet, so I’m bringing you a mini one today! During Halloween, I did an autumnal foods haul, which is one of my favorite posts because of the photography (check that out here!) So without further ado, here are some of my latest holiday food finds!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Ahh hot chocolate. One of the simplest hot beverages and one of the most delicious for the holidays! I picked up this little can of peppermint hot chocolate a few weeks ago from Trader Joe’s. I’d say this drink is more fresh and minty than chocolatey, which I think many people would like! Personally, I love when hot chocolate is extremely sweet, but I know many would prefer the muted chocolate taste. I also really appreciate the packaging it came it. It would be so simple to put the chocolate powder in little bags and use a cardboard box, but I really appreciate the tin can in comes in and the cheerful graphics on the front.

Danish Butter Cookies

Okay, can we just take some time to appreciate this tin design?? Seriously, these graphics create a little Danish wonderland! I’m in love with the little Christmas trees, reindeers, hearts, and socks that are organized all around the packaging. The off white with the cobalt blue and red is simply gorgeous and honestly makes me want to eat these delicious cookies everyday. I’ve had butter cookies before, but for some reason this season I was really craving them! In the tin are five different cookies in unique shapes. Some have sugar sprinkled across the top, and others are simple butter cookies. They are extremely soft and have such a lovely taste. If you’ve never tried butter cookies, definitely pick these up from Trader Joe’s, you won’t regret it!

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Drum roll please! Yes, another hot chocolate review! Could you expect anything less from me?? This one’s for those with a major sweet tooth! This hot chocolate is damn sweet and has a strong taste of salted caramel. Again, this is from Trader Joe’s and comes in an adorable little tin. I will usually heat up a big cup of water in the microwave and add about 2-3 scoops of this stuff (and of course, top with a healthy dollop of whipped cream!)

White Chocolate & Peppermint Pretzels

Last but certainly not least, these pretzels are absolutely unforgettable! They are perfect for any holiday party or just for a little bit of sweets after dinner. White chocolate isn’t something I eat very often, but it’s perfect when contrasted with the saltiness of the pretzel. The bits of peppermint on top are quite a lot, which I usually don’t like. But surprisingly it isn’t overpowering at all. I highly recommend these, but be careful, they’re a little dangerous considering the large bag! I bought these at Costco, but I have no doubt they are sold other places as well. Definitely check Target for them if you’re interested!

Alright, that’s it for tonight! I need to recover from my two finals I had today! Luckily, I have one more critique for ceramics tomorrow and I’m home for the holidays, yay!! Hope you all are doing well and if you’re a student, good luck with finishing up finals!
