When you want a hostess gift or simply some pure indulgence for the family try one of these sweet shops!

November 19, 2013 | | Back Issues

When you want a hostess gift or simply some pure indulgence for the family, you can’t go wrong with handmade chocolates from Alexandre Chocolates 1 in Bolton, The Chocolate Shop 2 in Orangeville or Debora’s Chocolates 3 in Erin. Or drop by The Olde Stanton Store 4 for Christmas-flavoured fudge (candy cane, eggnog and cranberry). No time to bake? Try the Christmas bread wreath from Holtom’s Bakery 5 in Erin, or a tray of sweets from Mercato Fine Foods 6 in Bolton, or the addictively delicious shortbread from Wicked Shortbread 7 in Orangeville. And a stocking stuffer of Leitch’s Honey 8 or Hockley Honey 9 will sweeten any toddy.
