sweet treats

I have all of these random pictures of treats that I enjoy. I decided to combine them into one post. 

First, a little bit of PB and a dark chocolate square. 

Second, decaf coffee with almond milk, Ritter sport dark chocolate wtih marzipan. Those Europeans know their chocolate.

This picture was from Christmas. I made my brothers vegan PB fudge for part of their presents. This was the first batch--it was crumbly. The last batches were much better. 

This was also from Christmas time. I had some vanilla soy ice cream from Trader Joe's, so I made grasshoppers. I added a little chocolate syrup to the top because I may (or may not...) have gone overboard  with alcohol ratio of the drink. 

And THIS. This is my favorite. Trader Joe's Soy Creamy Cherry Chocolate Chip. This is, in my opinion, hands down one of the best ice creams I have ever had--dairy or non. That is a bold statement from an extreme ice cream lover.

I tried this rice nog and was not impressed. I think I will have to try another brand next Christmas. Unfortunately, I had waited until after the season to look for it. I think that might be an indication that I really didn't care if I found some "egg nog." You see that Ritter Sport there again...that stuff has been making its presence known in my life these past 6 months.

Nice collection of sweets. I was into the TJ's Soy Creamy Cherry for a long time. Not only is it delicious, but an incredible bargain. Wish TJ's would offer more flavors.

Tasty treats! I'm very impressed with the pb fudge!

One of these days when I have access to a Trader Joe's I will have to try that SoyCreamy. Currently I really like Purely Decadent coconut cream :)

Shen, I also wish they had more flavors!

Cassie, I definitely have to travel about 40+ minutes for a TJ's and so it is a rare treat! They definitely need to expand their horizons!! I haven't tried Purely Decadent, but I should!
