I have been making mental notes of new (that is, new to me) and notable sweet treats that I think deserve a prominent space at an event, as a host/hostess gift or just for pure indulgence.
First up, Twisted Sisters by sisters, Missy and Jill are the two enterprising women behind the Toronto based gourmet pretzel company. They offer four products with lots of variations including twisted apples, marshmallows, pop’ems (pretzel sticks) and of course regular pretzels dipped in chocolate, candies and more. I have done chocolate dipped pretzels at a wedding, they were packaged in two’s for guests to share and they turned out to be a hit. I will definitely keep Twisted Sisters in mind for my next salty/sweet table!
Next up is More Cupcakes from Chicago. Move over pastry chefs, owner Patty Rothman is a cupcake curator! Patty designs cupcake creations using high quality ingredients. To me, More Cupcakes look sophisticated and are a far departure from “grandmas kitchen” cupcakes. For a sophisticated dinner party, More Cupcakes (sadly only in the US) would make a great after dinner indulgence.
Lastly, Suite 88 in Montreal ranks high on my list of sweet treats that are not to be overlooked. Their modern chocolates are complemented by the equally modern, minimalist interior design of their two boutiques in the city. If you happen to be in Montreal and can stop by Suite 88, in addition to purchasing chocolates, you can relax in store and taste their amazing waffles, gelato, chocolate bars and rich hot chocolate.
