Christmas snacks

During the Christmas holidays, I had many festive snacks at home to make the quarantine more enjoyable. So, not only was I baking more than normal, I also got more yummy and high calorie food. I think I need to dust off my Nintendo Ring Fit game and start excersizing daily again. 

Before I do that, I will show you what made me gain so much weight. 

First, I bought these pretty Christmas tompouce from the Albert Heijn supermarket. They were only €1 for two and they were freshly made, so I couldn't resist.

At the Albert Heijn supermarket, you can also find many Picard products at the freezer section. I was curious about the eclairs and it was the perfect occasion to try them. Taken out of the box, they didn't look that pretty, so I decorated them with some Christmas sprinkles that I got from the Jumbo supermarket. The filling inside however, was quite special. The 12 mini eclairs had 4 different flavors: pecan nuts & vanilla, chocolate, red fruit, and mango & passion fruit. Basically, two fruity flavors with a hint of sourness and two sweet flavors. I liked the mango & passion fruit the most.

From the Lidl supermarket, I bought these cute Christmas tree shaped pastries filled with almond paste (in Dutch: gevulde koeken) and mini croque monsieur (tiny toasted sandwiches with emmenthal cheese and ham).

From Amazon, we ordered the Lindt Lindor pistachio chocolate truffles and the Lindt Hazelnut chocolate spread. I really like anything with pistachio in it, so I enjoyed the chocolate truffles. The hazelnut chocolate spread was not too sweet and it had a nice hazelnut flavor.

From HEMA, we ordered a cake with pretty fall decorations such as a leaf, acorn, and red mushrooms. This was right before the stores closed due to the pandemic.
