Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Sweet Accessory Treats, from chocolates to cookies

December 17th, 2011

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all the treats. Whether it’s homemade batches of grandma’s cookies or peppermint chocolates or a warm cup of hot cocoa with whipped cream, my sweet tooth is on hyper-drive for the entire month of December (ok, it started with Halloween). I receive sweet treats as holiday gifts and I enjoying giving them out as well.

If you’d like to give the perfect sweet for the gal who loves her accessories, I have found 9 of the best choices out there to surprise and delight your friends and loved ones. From chocolate shoes to handbag-shaped cookies, there is the perfect option for the sweet love in your life.

“Classic Satchel” Cheesecake | Price is $235 via Neiman Marcus
As a major fan of cheesecake, this satchel shaped cheesecake has me drooling. Made of milk toffee cheesecake on a cookie crust decorated with imported Belgian chocolate paper with basketweave detail, this cake should serve 15-18 (or if it came to my house, it would serve just one).
