One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all the visual eye candy; although most of my photography revolves around food, in December I wish I could just hang out in department stores and people's homes, capturing all the glitter and lights. 

I'm happy to share some shots from the Williams-Sonoma holiday party I attended last week at their test kitchen in San Francisco. It was an amazing chance to check out their kitchen space, make merry with some fellow bloggers, and indulge in the holiday spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Christmas Chocolate Double Mint Fudge

Chocolate mint fudge trio

It's December, which means candy making time is upon us! I was asked by NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® chocolate to create a recipe using their new Nestlé Toll House DelightFulls Filled Baking Morsels. These unique new baking morsels feature a separate flavor - mint, caramel, cherry, or peanut butter - swirled into the chocolate so you get two flavors in one morsel. I love the idea of being able to layer flavors in my baking just by using these sweet little bits.

I was inspired by the dark chocolate morsels with mint filling: one because I love anything with mint, and two because it's the perfect flavor for the holiday season. Think of peppermint patties, candy canes, and peppermint bark - anything and everything cool, minty, and festive.
