Holiday Treats | Supporting World Central Kitchen
The end of year holidays are always an excuse to enjoy our favorite sweet treats. This gift is just enough (but not too much!) to satisfy our need for yummy holiday nibbles. Including:
- Dick Taylor Orange Bourbon Pecan 65% Dark Chocolate Bar (2 oz): For this holiday bar inspired by everyone's favorite favorite pie, bourbon soaked pecans are candied with maple syrup and orange and sprinkled on the back of a silky 65% Belize dark chocolate that's been combined with orange essential oil. Dick Taylor hails from founders who were deeply rooted in woodworking and boat building, and decided to devote their love of craft to a new challenge: the chocolate experience. Using organic cacao and organic cane sugar, Dick Taylor has built one of the tastiest chocolate brands in America.
- Old Dog Ranch Whiskey Spice Walnuts (6 oz): Old Dog Ranch is a fifth-generation family farm on the Calaveras River in Northern California. The family has lived and farmed at Old Dog Ranch since 1912 using sustainable farming practices and following organic and regenerative standards. Their certified organic products are handmade in small batches, in recyclable packaging, by real people who love real food. A holiday favorite, non-GMO whiskey is infused with organic fair-trade vanilla beans, then toasted with homegrown organic Chandler walnuts, organic sugar, and spices. Chandler walnuts are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and very low in cholesterol.
- Little Apple Treats Apple Cider Caramels with Rose Petals + Cocoa Nibs (1.8 oz): After buying an organic farm in Sonoma County, the founders of Little Apple Treats discovered some vintage cider making equipment in the old barn, and decided to try it out. It worked, and they began concocting award-winning organic small batch apple cider vinegars. Soon they discovered another marvel -- this time a piece of vintage machinery named Virgil -- now restored, it does the work of individually wrapping each delicious caramel piece. Little Apple Treats caramels start with freshly-pressed cider made from the heirloom apples growing in the orchard, slow-cooked to buttery perfection using local butter and cream + freshly ground spices. Then dusted with Pink Pearl apple powder and vanilla bean sea salt. And finally, Virgil wraps the concoction into individual paper candy wrappers. Enjoy!
