Guilty Pleasure


To most, Christmas is a magical time. The air is dripping with Peace on Earth and Good will toward men. Music reminds us that even though the storm rages outside, we are happy and content to sit by the fire and “Let it Snow”. Never mind that we don’t have time to sit by the fire or, worse yet, we don’t even have a fire. But still, hearts are warmed by the prospect of family and friends gathering, of stuffing and mashed potatoes, of the mixing scents of pine trees and sugar cookies.

To me, however, not only does the Christmas season evoke all the normal emotions and expectations, but it also drives me to a secret guilty pleasure…the Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar. Even though I have made mention that, initially, I’m slightly freaked out by the sight of Starbucks’ red, holiday cups, I’m also very keenly aware that when they show up, so do the Cranberry Bliss Bars.

If you have not tried a Cranberry Bliss Bar…do it! Yes, you will have a slight cardiac arrest when you are told how much money to hand the cashier, but accordingly, you will feel your heart skip a beat when you take your first bite. It’s well worth the rip-off price they charge.

Last Wednesday, I sneaked through the Starbucks drive-through for a Caramel Macchiato and Bliss Bar. I had the bar devoured before I could get my car back to my office and before the shell shocked feeling from the price I paid could wear off. I told myself there had to be a better way. I was right. Check out the link below and enjoy!

Oh that looks so good! I have not had one of those yet. I'll have to make a note to print that recipe before my next shopping trip!

I'm dying to try that recipe! I just haven't had time yet, so instead I keep buying the Starbucks ones...I will never learn my lesson! Hopefully, this weekend, I'll get my big chance. :-)
