Sneak Peek: Seasonal and Festive Treats from the Sweet Lobby

I can't believe I'm going to say this aloud, but it's true... the holidays are right around the corner.  That means dinner parties, office gifts, and other festive events.  Lucky for us, the Sweet Lobby made our lives a little bit easier this holiday season with their seasonal and festive treats, plus a new addition to the "sweet" line up... a canelĂ©.

This delicious little French pastry is cylinder-shaped (cooked in cooper trays from France!) and has a caramelized crust with a soft custard center--it is die for.  The perfect bite-sized treat to serve after dinner.
The Sweet Lobby teamed up with Dean and DeLuca to offer other festive treats this holiday season including cranberry walnut, peppermint, black-sesame pumpkin, sweet potato pecan, and black and white bubbly macaroons. 
The black and white bubbly macaroons, made with champagne white chocolate are the perfect pairing with a sweet desert wine to ring in the new year (and super festive with edible glitter).  The peppermint flavored macaroon is my personal favorite, adorned with candy cane chips.

So no need to stress this holiday season about preparing desserts, or figuring out what to bring to the holiday office party -- The Sweet Lobby has you covered!
