Holiday sweets and treats are quite literally everywhere we go these days. And let’s face it, most people’s pants fit a little more snugly as a result.
Mine sure as heck do.
Personally, it’s nearly impossible for me to turn down the offer of a tree-shaped sugar cookie, and I’ve never met a fudge cube I didn’t like. A hot chocolate with whipped cream and crushed candy cane sprinkles on top? You betcha!
I’m sure I’m not alone.
Why fight the urge to indulge? Embrace your sweet tooth and check out some of these great bakeries and cafés that are right here in Lennox & Addington County. They each have so many fantastic options to try. You owe it to your taste buds to take home a square or two… or six.
