Today’s giveaway comes from our friends at The Chocolate Swirl, the fantastic local dessert company, run by entrepreneur and master baker, Lisa. Not only is she talented at making traditional treats such as truffles and cakes, her best item in my opinion are her brownie pops that come in a variety of flavors. Aside from looking gorgeous, they’re addictingly delicious, and my most beloved flavor is the moist red velvet, sealed with a rich cream cheese frosting and a white chocolate shell. It’s to die for. And for today’s prize you’ll have the chance to compete for just that, along with other delicious treats that all fit into a beautifully packaged holiday mini gift basket. To enter, comment on this post and tell us about your favorite sweet treat to indulge in during the holidays – whether it’s something homemade or bought, we’d love to know. Don’t forget to put your email on your comment, so we can contact you quickly. You have until Monday to enter, and we’ll announce a winner on Tuesday, 12/20. Good luck and go get that chocolate!

NYCBird December 19th, 2011 Homemade hot chocolate, the REAL deal, is the only way to go. Jill December 19th, 2011 My cousins always bring cake truffles (I actually call them cake balls) to Christmas dinner. They’re so good! And my sister makes the best dutch apple pie in the world. A little vanilla bean ice cream on top and it makes my year! Catherine December 19th, 2011 I lovee pumpkin pie! Of course with vanilla bean ice cream! :) Diane M. December 17th, 2011 My favorite holiday dessert is cheesecake, especially with peppermint crumbles on top! Katie December 17th, 2011 I gotta say my favorite is the classic cupcake. Red velvet one of the tops but I also like the more interesting ones with crazy flavor mixtures. Bella December 16th, 2011 Homemade peanut butter cookies with a hershey kiss in the center. One of my friend’s parents used to ring in the holiday season by giving us these every year. Stephanie December 16th, 2011 I love peppermint bark – preferably with dark chocolate. Vanessa December 16th, 2011 homemade tres leches cake! Steph December 16th, 2011 I have to go with mom’s baklava, which is a staple over the holidays…but some brownie pops would be a fabulous addition to our treats! Hailey December 16th, 2011 chocolate peppermint cookies! Kat4a December 16th, 2011 Christmas means linzer tarts! Randi December 15th, 2011 turtle pie! Elena December 15th, 2011 Mulled wine is the best sweet treat for me during the holidays. I never think of it during the rest of the year but as soon as the first Christmas trees show up in store windows, I can practically smell it in the air … Yummmm! Mina December 15th, 2011 oh my !!!! so many treats to choose from…but my fav is a crepe with nutella for breakfast.mmm mmm mmm with mint tea kristine December 15th, 2011 I love chocolate pies or chocolate in general jenn December 15th, 2011 I only bake pies and cakes between thanksgiving and xmas so my fave treat is my apple pie. I’ve also been waiting for lisa to return to the astoria market! Maria Castro December 15th, 2011 those round little cookies with powdered sugar on them…mmmm Alexandra December 15th, 2011 Grandma’s own spin on “sticky buns” are a coveted treasure in my family. Warm, gooey, fluffy, brown sugar, butter and walnuts — I’m nearly drooling just thinking about them. Brad December 15th, 2011 I will scarf down and entire gingerbread house. So good. Stephanie December 15th, 2011 I LOVE cheesecake, in all flavors. I’ll order it everywhere I go! Lisa December 15th, 2011 Holidays are all about homemade goodies! I bake everything from breads to biscotti to traditional sugar cookies to give as gifts this time of year. It would sure be nice for someone to give me a delicious treat for once! ;) Krista December 15th, 2011 My favorite holiday treat is homemade shortbread! Ali - YumVeggieBurger December 15th, 2011 I’ll indulge in chocolate any time of the year… but for the holidays, nothing beats the combination of chocolate and peppermint :) Daniel Rios December 15th, 2011 I was a chocolatier for a year before continuing with baking. I love chocolates at the holidays, but I am not crazy enough to try and make handmade chocolates for everyone I know. Instead, I love my mom’s buttermilk pie or her fresh pan de polvo. Maybe I should post recipes for that? Jen Makulowich December 15th, 2011 I’m a chocolate kind of girl… choc covered pretzels… or choc covered peanut butter! YUM! :) Melissa December 15th, 2011 Angel wings are the best, any time of year Julia December 15th, 2011 ginger snaps or ribbon candy, although I often cut the roof of my mouth on the latter. Sarah December 15th, 2011 I would say my fave is the sugar cookies my mom used to make … but I made a batch over the weekend and the memory turned out to be better than the cookie. So, yay! professional bakers :) Comments are closed.
