As you know, I love sweets.

And as you also know from a previous post, I love the combination of dark chocolate and peppermint. So you can imagine how excited I got when one of the girls I work with brought in a homemade, sweet Christmas treat, which she gave to several of her fellow-employees. In fact, I got so excited when she handed it to me, that I started jumping and down like a kangaroo on a pogo stick. You would have sworn she had just handed me a picture of Tom Ford with an invitation to meet him for a glass of wine on New Year’s Eve at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

Talk about a SWEET treat…

*note: I have a wobbly knee weakness for dark hair, dark eyes, and a scruffy face.

Um, yes, anyway…

Actually, the sweet treat I’m referring to is this…

 It was a dark chocolate cupcake in a mason jar. How faaabulous is that?

And the best part is that the cupcake was topped with a peppermint ganache and candy cane pieces.


This was perhaps one of THE most delicious sweet treats I tasted throughout the holiday season. It was PURE heaven!

I ate it over a period of four days because I wanted it to last. Plus, I knew it probably had about 6,000 grams of sugar in it, so I didn’t want to OD and have to call 911-Sugar Shock.

Here, take a look at me enjoying it…

But I guess you’re all wondering if I had to choose between receiving a cupcake like this, or having a date with Tom Ford for a glass of wine on New Year’s Eve, which would I pick?

Um…let me think about that for a minute.

*one second later*

Yup, definitely the latter…

Wishing you a Sweet and Happy New Year everyone!
Looking forward to blogging with y’all in 2014.
Cheers and much X
