Snowflake pretzels

Someone at work brought in "Snowflake Pretzels" from Crate and Barrel. I can't find them on their website, but maybe they're available (probably only during the holidays) at stores.

They're white chocolate covered pretzels with white nonpareils on them. The pretzels are shaped like snowflakes. Yummy and festive!

Chocolate chessecake

During my work retreat at the Essex Conference Center, they served chocolate cheesecake. I'm not always a fan of mixing media, as this did with a chocolate mousse and frosting layer on top and plain cheesecake underneath. This particular one, though, really worked. It was so good, in fact, that it overshadowed the s'mores at the campfire later in the evening.
