Wonderful Winter Treats!
Take a look outside and like everyone else I'm sure you will see a pure white blanket outside that has now covered the grounds, branches of the trees, the rooftops through Neopia, and the tips of every mountain. The dark nights appear early in the afternoon, with the cool air cutting through the sky sending us all inside to keep warm. The smell of smoke drifts through the neighborhood while we keep our homes warm with a blazing fireplace. This frosty weather calls for us all to bundle up in wooly jackets, mittens, and colorful scarves to keep ourselves warm while we brave the outdoors. Despite the crisp air outside, there are many activities that only winter can allow us to enjoy. So why not call up some friends and spend the day ice-skating through Happy Valley, talking a brisk walk through the Ice Caves, or even building snowman in the snow on the top of Terror Mountain as you watch the blissful snowflakes fall from the sky?
One pastime every Neopian can say they enjoy every frosty season is to enjoy a pleasant mug of tea, coffee, or even a cocoa with a mouthwatering treat! Whether you are enjoying your day inside by yourself with a crackling fireplace and a good novel, walking through the snow covered towns with fresh delicious aromas drifting from the bakeries, roasting marshmallows over a bonfire, or having a gathering with your friends and family, we all enjoy a nice treat and drink to bring us together to celebrate this chilling season!
So here I have found some wonderful winter themed treats and drinks that are made especially for this frosty season!
Snowflake Winter Coffee
During these frosty winter days, one thing all Neopians can agree on is that nothing beats a toasty delectable cup of coffee that warms you from head to toe! This Snowflake Winter Coffee has been tested to perfection and is only brewed during the winter. This aromatic brew is made with the finest beans then brewed to perfection with hints of peppermint, nutmeg, ginger, and a splash of vanilla, then swirled with a fresh cinnamon stick. This coffee is served boiling in a festive blue frosted mug, so if it's too hot for your taste, just add a few fresh snowflakes to cool it down!

When one of those snowy days comes along where it seems like it won't stop, don't get stuck inside. Grab a pair of warm mittens and a thick wool scarf and call up a pal and head on out to the lovely snowflake covered town of Neopia to visit your favorite bakery and enjoy your afternoon with a warm beverage and a these apples. The sweet smell of these apples alone will have your mouthwatering! These apples have been cooked to perfection then rolled in a luscious thick caramel with a drizzle of vanilla icing. As a finishing touch, these apples have a festive edible snowflake candy cane to hold while you enjoy your apple, then you can enjoy a candy cane on your walk home.

Just before serving as a finishing touch, these pretzels are covered with a sticky caramel icing then dusted with sparkling brown sugar.
