When it comes to Christmas treats, I do bake a lot of them myself, but there are other things we enjoy as well. This year, I came across a local (Okotoks) chocolate maker that I highly recommend – Obsession Handmade Chocolates. Here is the link to their website.
Moving on from there, another seasonal favourite of mine is stollen – with the marzipan centre! I was gifted some in November and it was enjoyed thoroughly.
A recent favourite: Weiss chocolate-covered-gingerbread with apricot filling.
Darvilles Tea, which I have mentioned before.
And last, but not least, Saltwest garlic/onion salt to flavour all the hearty roasts and stews we eat in winter.
