Top 5 Tuesday... Holiday Treats

I just started working at a local French bakery, called Amelie's, so of course I have sweets on my mind. Then today a Twitter friend mentioned that she had been inspired by her fellow Etsians to make some homemade marshmallows, and cherry-flavored ones at that! So that settled it. Today's Top 5 had to be devoted to sweet treats for the holidays. And here they are - sugary delights that look as wonderful as they must taste.

by Gingerbread Street
This seller is all the way in Ireland and uses freshly ground spices and traditional gingerbread making for their recipes. Who wouldn't want to find one of these beautiful cookies in their stocking?

by Teton Cocoa Company
This is a great spin on a traditional favorite, and there is nothing better than a mug of hot chocolate on a cold wintry night.

by Nubby Cakes
Not only do these Christmasy confections look delectable, but they're also thoughtfully vegan and gluten free - something that we can all enjoy!

by Calabasas Candy Co.
I adore homemade caramels, and these sound scrumptious, made with Madagascar vanilla and topped with flakes of fleur de sel (a hand-harvested sea salt).

by Have It Confections
It was difficult not picking all of my top 5 from this shop. Everything they have looks and sounds delicious!


  1. These all look yummy! Congrats on your new job!

  2. Thanks - I love coming home from work smelling like sugar!
