*NEW* Red Velvet Mini Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Icing – $4.00

holiday-hearth-food-28

This was very tasty and moist. It wasn’t too heavy on the red velvet and had plenty of sweet cream cheese icing.

The Christmas sprinkles add a nice crunch that complements the texture well.

*NEW* Salted Caramel Spaceship Earth Cookie – $5.25

holiday-hearth-food-21

For $5.25, this isn’t bad, but you would buy it more for the novelty of eating a Spaceship Earth-shaped cookie more than anything else.

The salted caramel filling was good, but the cookie itself was kind of dry. The glitter sprinkles got everywhere, and the caramel will stick in your teeth.

*NEW* Snowball Cookies – $4.00

holiday-hearth-food-18

This is a light cookie with a decent crunch to it. Like all snowball cookies, they are covered in powdered sugar.

holiday-hearth-food-35

We could definitely taste the almonds, which makes us think the batter didn’t get it all mashed up and there may have been chunks. We weren’t big fans, and feel you could get something similar at the grocery store.

*NEW* Peppermint Bark – $6.25

holiday-hearth-food-30

This was very chewy, and the bark fell apart as we ate it. The peppermint stuck to our teeth.

holiday-hearth-food-36

The white chocolate flavor was good, and the peppermint taste was strong… but overall, this was just okay.

*NEW* Stollen: Holiday Fruit Cake  – $4.25

holiday-hearth-food-19

If you prefer a drier version of fruit cake, you would like this. It’s a little light on the fruit and nuts, plus it’s covered in powdered sugar.

holiday-hearth-food-20

You get a nice size piece for $4.25 and comes in a box, so you can take it with you to have with some Joffrey’s later.

*NEW* Mouse Crunch – $6.00

holiday-hearth-food-33

This was not worth it. It’s just a mix of caramel popcorn and chocolate-covered pretzels.

holiday-hearth-food-34

The popcorn reminds us of the one served at Appleseed Orchard.

holiday-hearth-food-37

*NEW* Gingerbread Milkshake (non-alcoholic) – $4.50

holiday-hearth-food-24

This is great. You can definitely taste the gingerbread, but it’s not too strong. The drink is creamy and cold.

holiday-hearth-food-25

It’s a nice change from the typical frozen hot chocolate.

*NEW* Hot Cocoa (non-alcoholic)  – $3.50

holiday-hearth-food-22

The hot cocoa is pretty watery and did not have a strong chocolate flavor. It was overall a bit weak.

*NEW* Gingerbread Milkshake with Whipped Cream Vodka – $11.00

holiday-hearth-food-27

We liked the gingerbread milkshake as-is, but the vodka adds an extra kick.

*NEW* Cocoa Candy Cane: Hot Cocoa with Peppermint Schnapps  – $11.00

holiday-hearth-food-23

This had a generous amount of alcohol. But like we said above, the hot cocoa was weak. It was just an average alcoholic hot cocoa with some peppermint added.
