NEW Indulgent WinterFest Desserts

We all can agree that the holiday season is an excuse to indulge in your favorite foods. Comforting dishes and sweet desserts are what make the holidays so great. Best of all: you don’t even need to feel guilty about it because this is the time of year everyone is giving themselves a break and treating themselves to tasty sweets. At WinterFest this year, you can enjoy some of the Bay Area’s best holiday desserts!

Here’s what’s new this year on the WinterFest dessert menu.

Giant Cinnamon Roll

Sometimes just one cinnamon roll isn’t enough… but in this case, it might actually be! Our giant cinnamon roll combines a rich buttery dough with the sweet flavors of cinnamon and sugar, glazed with a vanilla icing on top. This giant cinnamon roll is big enough to share with the whole family—almost 16 inches across—but we won’t judge you if you decide to eat it all to yourself. You can grab one at WinterFest Food Festival.

Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

This gooey, classic pull-apart bread, or monkey bread, is a holiday must-have! Imagine biting into fresh, warm, vanilla-glazed cinnamon dough that’s slightly crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside—is your mouth watering yet? You can find it at Candy Cane Concoctions, WinterFest Food Festival and Sierra Creek Lodge.

Festive Churros

Another cinnamon, doughy guilty pleasure. (I think we’re starting to create a theme here!) But this isn’t a normal churro; it’s hand-dipped in vanilla frosting and decorated with Christmas themed patterns!

Treat yourself this holiday season during WinterFest, returning November 23!
