It is always our intention to eat healthy...whole grains, fresh veggies, and naturally sweetened treats. We realize, however, that if you look at our recent posts, it seems like we Tarts fuel ourselves with sugar and butter. We can't help it; it's the season that rears its ugly, yet delicious head, causing our normal low-fat latte to morph, stealth-like, into a peppermint mocha or a gingerbread latte.
"Would you like whipped cream on that?"
(barely a whisper) "Yes, please."
Well, sometimes you just have to throw your hands up and say, "Bring it!" We did just that when we stopped at Williams-Sonoma and picked up their famous Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Well, bring it they do, with artisanal bittersweet chocolate by Guittard, lightly flavored with triple-distilled, natural peppermint oil. Topped with homemade organic whipped cream, it makes a delightful treat for you or someone you love. Paired with peppermint bark and a cute mug, it serves as an excellent holiday gift!
