While everyone things about the huge holiday dinners and such, there is one food category that is equally, if not more, important to a successful gathering. That, of course, is dessert. Dessert is often the favorite part of any good meal, and it is the last thing your guests will eat, so it needs to be extra memorable.
You certainly don't want to serve a delicious dinner only to have it be tarnished by a ho hum dessert.
While baking is a huge part of the holidays(and a lot of fun at times), not everyone has the time or the skills to make amazing desserts. I am one of those people as a matter of fact. I will say that I do make some pretty delicious baked goods, and I can find the time when needed, but I still do not like to serve my desserts to people outside my home.
Why? Because no matter how great they taste, they do not look nearly as appealing. I am good at making food that tastes good, but making it look fancy or even presentable is not my strong suit. My cakes look like the icing was hurled at the cake by a 2 year old. Even if the cake tastes like it came from the finest bakery, looks do matter on this kind of thing.
I have often bought desserts from the supermarket, but not only do they not taste great, anyone else who shops there could easily recognize where it came from, which is not something I like.
This year, we will be spending the holidays with my husband's family, most of whom I have never even met. It is a long story, but he and his family were estranged for over 10 years, and this will be the first holiday he has spent with them in over 16 years.
Needless to say, I want everything to be perfect for him, and I want to make a great first impression. I do not plan on serving desserts that look like a child made them or plain old supermarket staples. I need something extravagant.
Thankfully, I know just the thing. Having recently discovered the most delicious and beautiful confections I have ever tried, I knew that Yummes would make my holiday dessert unforgettable(and as easy as clicking a mouse).
No matter what you choose from Yummes, it will make any day feel like a holiday, but I was really excited about their seasonal collection. Now they will look even more festive.
I tried 3 of these amazing collections, and I love them all so much.
Holiday Chocolate Lovers Collection Of Mini Brownies:
- 3 Salted Caramel Craziness Mini Brownies
- 3 Triple Threat Chocolate Mini Brownies
- 3 Chocolate Chip on my Shoulder Mini Brownies
Seasonal Assortment Mini Tower:
- 2 Pumpkin Whoop-d-doos
- 1 Peppermint Crunch Whoop-d-doos
- 1 Salted Caramel Craziness Brownie

The Jingle-Bell Tower:
As if the amazing towers and boxes were not impressive enough, the cakes are equally divine. This Peppermint Hot Cocoa cake is to die for.
Don't even get me started on the amazing icing and chocolate ganache. The moist chocolate cake itself is heaven on it's own, but when everything is combined it becomes a true masterpiece.
I am so sad that my Yummes treats are gone now. I was racking my brain trying to think up every possible excuse to buy more, and then I realized the Yummes are not only for a special occasion, but rather they make any occasion special.
And as something extra special for all of you, Yummes is offering a giveaway to you all. One lucky winner will receive their choice of any 3 tier seasonal tower. Enter below for your chance to win. Good luck!
