Scooped: Spiced Dark Chocolate and Candy Cane Ice Cream

Sweets Max Falkowitz Post a comment

I have to admit to being generally ignorant about all things Christmas. More than once I've forgotten why the day's marked as a holiday on the office calendar. I don't get the whole tree, lights, and decoration thing. I've never been forced to eat fruitcake. More

Spiced Dark Chocolate and Candy Cane Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz Post a comment

A surefire cure for flat-tasting chocolate ice cream. You can serve this right out of the freezer, but also feel comfortable leaving it out for upwards of half an hour without fear of melting. More

BraveTart: Holiday Fauxreos

Sweets Bravetart 3 comments

The mere sight of an Oreo stirs up feelings in me disturbingly like love. Not, of course, a torrid, star crossed love. Or even a simple storybook love. No, Oreos give you the kind of love only found in a long term relationship. They're familiar, comforting and pretty good in bed. (Oh, like you never eat cookies in bed?) More

Einstein Bros. Candy Cane Bagels

I was at Einstein Bros. Bagels yesterday to get my "usual"—the sandwich I've been ordering there since I was 18 and was finally allowed to leave my high school campus during free periods. (The usual, if you are curious, is a sesame bagel with hummus that is spreadable rather than dippable, lettuce, cucumber, and roasted red pepper.) In the bagel case, I saw red-and-white candy cane bagels, and I found them, frankly, to be kitschy cool. Yes, it's now a little late, but they would have been the perfect Christmakkuh accessory. They can be torn like challah, shmeared with plain cream cheese, and hung on a tree, although probably not in that order. Available for the next few days,... More

A Tree, with All the (Edible) Trimmings

Kerry Saretsky 8 comments

A Candy Cane-Trimmed Tree. Photo by PugnoM. I saw The Nutcracker last night, and seeing tutu-clad sugarplums, shimmying Arabian coffee, and pirouetting marzipan reminded that somehow everything at Christmas is so delectable—so edible. When I wish for a white Christmas, I hope for a snow shower of sugar to cover my table, more than a blanket of frozen water to shroud my house. So, in the spirit of making this year an edible Christmas and of living in my own candyland, I want every ornament on my tree to be fit for consumption. I am going to hang gingerbread men (not fatally), with their wry, white smiles and buttoned-up demeanors. A few branches to the left I'll place a... More
