Superduper Last-minute HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!!!!

EDIT!!!!!! THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED!!!!!!!! I WILL NO LONGER APPROVE COMMENTS FOR THIS ENTRY. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Hey folks,
I’ve always wanted to do a giveaway, but I’ve been so crazy busy that I never have anything left to giveaway!
I took the opportunity after BazaarBizarre to put together a lil sumthinsumthin for all of you who have supported me and read my blog!

This giveaway package includes red and white striped peppermint wristwarmers/fingerless gloves, a red and white striped peppermint candy-heart necklace, and a red and wdhite swirled lollipop brooch.

TO ENTER:

Just leave a comment on my blog, telling me what your most favorite holiday treat is! (and make sure to enter your email address in the email address field so I know how to contact you!)

DEADLINE:

This is super quick! I will choose a winner with a random-number-generator on Monday, December 21st, at noon, PST. This way, I can hopefully have time to contact the winner, and have the winner send me his/her mailing address, and get the package out before the post office closes on the same day. For people in the U.S., the package should arrive before Xmas (according to the USPS….). Sorry to my international readers! I just didn’t get my act together in time! I will obviously still send the package to an international winner, but the package will probably definitely not arrive in time for Xmas.

Okay, this is my first giveaway at my own blog, so if I left anything out or messed something up…please let me know! πŸ˜›

xoxo

  1. It’s SO difficult to say what my favourite holiday treat is… But if I had to choose one thing, it would be eating chocolate in bed with my awesome girlfriend and watching DVDs whilst not having to be at work. And that definitely counts as one thing!

    Hrm…I’m fairly obsessed with pie. I love pie all year long, but the pie that I can only get this time of year (due to my lack of cooking skills) would be sweet potato. It’s like the black people version of pumpkin pie (in popularity). So good! Ahhh!

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      i tried sweet potato pie when i was in houston!

  7. Lizi Tom says:

      1. faeriesmak says:

        That would be awesome if I would win..I don’t have one of those necklaces with the cute pearl chain and the toggle…I just have prototype nummer 1. XOXO

        The Corn Flakes in chocolate are horribly addicting.

  13. Caitlin says:

  14. Marie says:

    Eeeep! Thanks so much for this giveaway! I even contacted you about the candy necklace!

    Hmm.. I love this fruit cake my mom gets imported from back home in Bulgaria. Sooo yummy! Sadly, it only comes out around the holidays!

    *squints eyes & crosses fingers*

  16. Alyson says:

    Katie

  18. silvia says:

    My favorite holiday treat is Pandoro with chantilly on top, possibly served (in my mother’s bed) with lots of sprinkles on it, running through the blankets…
    ^_^

  19. Laura Siclari says:

    My favorite holiday treat is the smile of my little son while he opens his gifts…

  20. Erika Martin says:

    Wow! What a great give-away! Thanks for offering it. My favorite holiday treat is my mom’s Cherry Wink cookies. They’re made with maraschino cherries and have Hershey Kisses on top. Nummy!

  21. Polly says:

    For eating, my favourite holiday treat is probably marzipan fruits, as I adore marzipan and they have the added benefit of looking like tiny fruits so are therefore cute. I like making them too, they are really easy but people always seem so impressed! And for an experience, my favourite holiday treat is having a whole day where I can lounge around in my pyjamas eating chocolate with my younger siblings and no one can tell me off for being lazy because it’s Christmas! x

    1. Danette says:

      I love love love everything Marzipan too!!!! could you give me the recipe to make it from scratch? I thought I was the only one that loved Marzipan as much as I do! lol! i also love anything almond tasting esp with raspberries! Happy Holidays!

      1. Polly says:

        To be honest I usually just mould the fruits from ready made marzipan I buy in a packet, because making it from scratch ends up costing about 5 times as much as buying it readymade! But one of my friends made me this really cool cake for my birthday which was chocolate with homemade marzipan, and he basically used this recipe without the lemon juice http://thefoody.com/baking/marzipan.html Apparently it is really easy. I am totally obsessed with marzipan to eat, the smell, anything almondy! I even had a perfume which smelt like marzipan at one point, and Burt’s Bees do this great marzipan scented handcream called Almond Milk Hand Creme. Sorry this is a really long comment, but I am excited that you love marzipan too, normally people think I am weird for my obsession with it! Oh and Merry Christmas!

        1. Danette says:

          Ha!!!! I am totally obsessed with all almondy smelling and tasting too!!!! I’ll have to get that Burt’s Bees hand cream! 2 yrs ago at Ulta for Christmas they added Almond to their Body lotion/bath gel/hand lotion and I was in heaven everytime I took a shower!!! It smelled exactly like Marzipan! I so wish I would have bought a case cuz I can’t find it anymore : (
          OOh and I love the Pignoli nut Italian cookies! Have you ever had them? Its perfeclty crunch on the outside and soft almond flavored cookie on inside with Pine nuts on top! And Rainbow Cookies! Ok now I’m hungry!! Good to find someone else whose as Marzipan/almond obsessed as I am!

  22. Sarah says:

    My favourite holiday treat is definitely the leftover turkey sandwich. My mum has perfected the art of it – two thick slices of white bread, with butter, a thin layer of good quality mayonnaise, rough cut tukey (especially any that still has the skin, mm!) with a pass of salt, then stuffing, cranberry sauce and thin slivers of pickled onion. SO. GOOD.

  23. Erin says:

    Favoriate holiday treat: Eggnog. I know it’s not visually stunning, so probably moot for your purposes, but I love the spices and extreme creaminess.

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      aw, hehe, i didn’t have any purposes, i.e. i wasn’t looking for project inspiration. i really was just curious what everyone looked forward to eating/drinking! πŸ™‚

  24. piper says:

    everything is so adorable. I think my fave holiday treat is homemade kaluha chocolate truffles!

    1. piper.... says:

      we have the same name!!!!

      1. piper says:

        hey! hi other Piper! I have heard of other Pipers but never actually talked to one!

  25. Jen says:

    My favorite holiday treat are butter cookies and peanut butter cookies with a peanut butter cup in the middle.

  26. Wei says:

    My favorite holiday treat is peppermint bark chocolate. Yummmm!! Ghiradelli always makes limited edition batches for the holidays and I always buy some!

  27. Lee Anne says:

    Ahhh, I love Lady Locks! I’ve been eating a ton of them with big warm mugs of swirly Chai tea! Mmmm, so flaky and full of holiday goodness!

  28. james guzman says:

    My birthday is halloween so of course thats my fav holiday and i LOVE cookies!!!!

  29. Cate says:

    Aside from a big juicy Goose (we don’t have turkey) which is a once a year treat I’ll have to say Peppermint candy (what a coincidence XD) I love anything minty and they’re supercute to <3

  30. EMi says:

    My favourite holiday treat is eggnog! My dad makes it himself from scratch, and it’s absolutely amazing.

  31. Kim S says:

    Oh! Oh! Oh! Please pick me!! >_<

    hmm… My favorite holiday treat is… Geez. All of them! I love all the treats that come with the season that you only get once a year! I love sweets. ^_^

  32. erin says:

    I love spritz, I think they are called. They are a super, super simple vanilla cookie. There is nothing really special about them but they are pure heaven.

  33. valerie says:

    I don’t know what they are called but they are marshmallows dipped in carmel then in rice crispies. I LOVE them so much that I start dreaming about them in novemer πŸ™‚

  34. Kcatz says:

    My favorite holiday treats are red velvet cupcake & peppermint mocha with mini marshmallows on top *yumm* Wearing your gingerbread scarf completes the occasion without adding calories πŸ˜‰

    I’m so happy I got both your cupcakes & gingerbread scarves, right on time for my trip to Japan. I’m gonna rock the ‘Twinkawaiiness!’ I’m just missing the candycane wrist warmer. Your handcraft is magnificent & truly made with LOVE…
    XOXO, Kiki πŸ˜€

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      aw thanks, kiki!

      i too love a peppermint mocha!!!

  35. Amanda says:

    Favorite holiday treat? Has to be Coconut Rumballs. OMG. I made up a recipe years ago and we make them a month before Christmas. Let them marinate in the fridge during that time and they get super potent but they have a great flavor (not like normal rumballs)

  36. CANDY CANES!!!
    Oh my. and if theyre the fruity flavored ones..yumm delishh. theyre so simple yet so good and festive.
    Thanks Twinkie.

  37. Hi favourite holiday treat is definitely sitting at home with my boyfriend enjoying a hot chocolate with cream and marshallows in my awesome hello kitty mug!! Its my fav time of the year!!

    Corrinne

  38. Melissa says:

    You know, I know us savory enthusiasts are in the minority, but I have to agree with the leftover sandwich, though on Christmas, it’s all about grilled ham and brie on thick wheat, with brown seeded mustard, caramelized onions and pears, and cranberry sauce.

    Oh yeah!

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      i am going to have to go with your ham over the leftover turkey!

  39. Zannid says:

    My favorite holiday treat would have to be pumpkin rolls. My aunt used to make them every year for Thanksgiving and ever since I’ve loved them. Really anything pumpkin makes me happy though. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, mmmm pumpkin.

    Other than that, I love peppermint and caramel flavored items, but I eat those all year round. πŸ™‚

  40. Jessica says:

    My favorite holiday treat is not technically a holiday treat, but my mom only ever makes it at the holidays. Since she grew up in Thailand she makes deep fried bananas….they are dipped in sweetened condensed milk and rolled in coconut shavings, then fried. I like to dip them in chocolate : )

  41. piper.... says:

    gingerbread house! my mom always goes to target and buys the kit an spends hours making it, but i end up eating it anyway

  42. Nicole Fischer says:

    My mom makes the most delicious Russian Teacakes every year. I just love those!! It’s the only time she makes them in the year, so I know I’ll be waiting for awhile before I get them again!!

  43. Corvus says:

    I’m all about the sugar cookies. I like to make my own frosting to decorate them.

  44. Shelbi says:

    Ohhh, how cute! I’d have to say that my favorite treat is chocolate pie. It’s not very Christmas-y, but my birthday is on the 18th, a week before Christmas, and my mom always makes it for me instead of a cake. So I always associate it with Christmas time. πŸ™‚

  45. Mary says:

    My favourite holiday treat is a nice cup of Gustafson’s eggnog with a plate of sour cream cookies covered in royal icing.

  46. Khristy says:

    My favorite holiday treat is peanut clusters! Chocolate and peanuts! How can you go wrong?

  47. Ashleigh says:

    Oh jeeze. I have two favorite Christmas treats! Both of them were introduced to me by my step mom when I was younger and I swear, if I was lost on an Island, those better be in my suitcase! Anyways, One of them is a traditional Mexican Christmas treat, the tamale. Every year I scarf them down like a mad man! Along with my second favorite treat, peanut butter balls! They’re know as buckeyes to some people but none-the-less they are so delicious, and fun to make! Creamy peanut butter wrapped in a silky layer of chocolate *drools*
    Those have to be my favorite treats, but I have to mention my all time favorite holiday food, stuffing. I could live on that πŸ˜€

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      high five on the STUFFING!!!

  48. Nicole says:

    My favorite holiday treat is spending the time to make a gingerbread house, but usually it’s display doesn’t last long because it’s so hard not to eat it right away! It’s building a creative holiday treat out of many awesome treats!!! Doesn’t get any better than that to me. ;D

  49. Sassafras says:

    i think that everything is better with dinosaurs πŸ™‚ so my favorite holiday treat is homemade gingerbread baked by my partner and cut out with dinosaur cookie cutters πŸ™‚

    nothing says christmas to me like dinosaurs, my favorite holiday song is “Hark the Pterodactyl Sings” from an album put out by the natural history museum here in NYC.

    xoxo

  50. Lauren says:

    Id have to say my favorite holiday treat is a good cup of hot cocoa…spike it with a little Baileys, then YUM!
