With the flavors of cherries, pistachios and chocolate, spumoni is a beloved frozen treat that sparks feelings of nostalgia in those of us who enjoyed as kids. We are of the firm belief that proper spumoni should contain bits of fruit and nuts, lest the ice cream venture into Neapolitan territory. Think of these cookies as grown-up versions of the quintessential Italian dessert just right for sharing during the holidays.
Cookies are all about sharing. If we could, we’d host a good old fashioned cookie swap and invite all of you to share your time-tested family recipes with us. Luckily, we have the Internet!
Our peppermint ganache thumbprint cookies offer a new spin on a holiday classic. We can’t think of a better way to put our Peppermint Stick holiday bar to good use, with the exception of eating it straight from the wrapper. These cookies are sure to impress at any gathering and make gorgeous hostess gifts.

While our favorite brownies, cookies, and hot toddies are true delights during this season of celebration, we must admit that after indulging with friends and family this week we’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to get back into our daily routine. And what better way to do that than with nibs? We like to toss them into salads for a healthy crunch packed with antioxidants.
In celebration of all things chocolate, we're bringing you a week chock-full of recipes for your holiday table. Follow along on Pinterest and Facebook for all of our Theo-inspired dishes.
Today we're wrapping up recipe week with one of our favorite treats from Alice Choi, who blogs over at Hip Foodie Mom. Alice used our Gingerbread Spice Holiday Bar to create decadent sticky buns. Warming and sweet on cold winter mornings, these buns are perfect for holiday baking and sharing with the ones you love.
