The holiday season is upon us. And I am ready to get in the spirit with this delectable recipe for Cranberry Baked Brie. It is the perfect savory snack for all your seasonal gatherings.
As soon as November 1st rolls around each year, you will find me feverishly swapping out my spooky Halloween decor with festive wreaths and garlands. I am definitely an “embrace the holiday spirit” kind of gal. So I want to savor all the things I love about the season for as long as I possibly can.
And to prepare for diving right into my holiday baking mode, I recently made the trek to my local Walmart to pick up some essentials. While I was there, I discovered the most amazing special-edition flavors of my family’s favorite sodas. Indulge in a true taste of the season this year with Coca-Cola® Cinnamon and Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry. So delicious!
The hint of spice adds a perfect amount of holiday flair and flavor to Coca-Cola® Cinnamon. And the Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry is so crisp and refreshing. It wasn’t until I’d grabbed a couple of 12-packs of each that I noticed these flavors are also available in cute little mini cans. So, of course, I had to add a few 6-packs to my cart as well. Add them to your Walmart cart now too before they are gone!
These limited-time products are perfect for serving up all season long. I know my Thanksgiving guests will appreciate these tasty seasonal drinks. And I think they will be the perfect accompaniment to the Cranberry Baked Brie I’m serving at my annual cookie swap party.
