Ideas on Incorporating Chocolate into the Holiday Season

lindt the season
Holiday entertaining season is rushing upon us this year! No matter how organized we want to be, there is always that last minute rush. At the #LindtTheSeason event, I was able to learn a few awesome ideas on how we can use Lindt chocolate to decorate our home, use it as gifts, and incorporate it into our holiday cooking and baking.

In our home, we love the holiday season because of the lights, the colours that make the coldest winters feel cozy, and the time we get together with family and friends to share and care!

The entryway is the first thing our guests see when they arrive. To make a simple wreath festive and engaging, we can adorn it with Lindor chocolate. At the event, I got to decorate a wreath with its fresh scented cedar, balsam fir, pine, and spruce using pinecones, ornaments, and Lindor chocolate.

We can use Lindor chocolate to make ornaments and decoration such as hanging Lindor in a garland. There are two limited edition Lindor truffles, peppermint cookie and gingerbread that we can use in the garland.

Decorate the table with Lindt Christmas Crackers and add a sweet touch by placing a Lindt Bear at every table setting.

We can add chocolate into holiday baking like in this Chocolate Brioche Buns. This recipe from Ricardo Larrivee in Lindt The Season book can make eight to twelve buns. 

1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup sugar
3 1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
1 bar dark cacao chocolate roughly chopped
1 egg lightly beaten for brushing

Combine the yeast with a little bit of sugar and some of the milk and leave it to froth. Then mix in the milk, rest of the sugar, flour, salt, egg, and butter. Combine to make a dough and leave it for 10 minutes in a warm humid place covered with a damp cloth to rest.

Knead the dough again and add the chocolate then shape into balls and leave it in a lined baking sheet covered to double in size for 45 to 60 minutes in a warm humid place. Once the buns double in size brush the buns lightly with the beaten egg. Preheat the oven to 350F and bake in the middle rack for 25 to 30 minutes.   

Everything is better with chocolate! For more ideas get a copy of the complimentary print magazine available at all Lindt chocolate shops, and visit LindtTheSeason.ca
