The best Costco treats and snacks for Christmas!
I think I’m well qualified to make a list of the best Costco chocolates, treats and snacks for the holiday season. Basically, there are two reasons for this: I love the holidays, and every year I make it my mission to try all of the new Christmas treats each year. As a bonus, I’m also obsessed with Costco in general and I keep a close eye on what Costco shoppers go crazy for every holiday season.
I love seeing what Costco brings out for the holidays each year. Most of the items seem to stay the same year after year, but there are always a few new ones to add some excitement! I decided to use my knowledge to put together my official list of the best Costco chocolates, treats and snacks for Christmas. Most of these goodies are also great to have around for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations too!
If you’re looking for Costco treat ideas for the holidays, you’ve stumbled upon the right post. I also have other lists for the top Costco bakery items for Christmas and the top Costco appetizers for Christmas.
Now let’s get started and check out the top Costco chocolates, snacks and treats for the 2021 Christmas and holiday season!
The Costco Trufettes De France Chocolate Truffles are perfect for any chocolate lover. They’re rich, very chocolatey, creamy and not overly sweet. Everyone I know who’s tried these truffles loves them. You get a ton of chocolate truffles in just one box.
The Costco Kirkland Signature European Cookies come in a fancy tin with a variety of biscuits that are covered with milk, dark and white Belgian chocolate. The chocolate on these cookies is delicious and the biscuits are nice and crispy.
The Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters are my absolute favorite chocolate treat to have during the holidays. They remind me of a Turtle, but I think they’re much tastier. These macadamia caramel clusters often sell out quickly and are available for a short period of time each year, so keep an eye out and don’t miss your chance to buy them! This photo isn’t great, so I’m thinking I should probably buy another container so I can update it…
The Costco Kirkland Signature Premium Quality Whole Mixed Nuts are fresh and delicious. Most mixed nuts from the store have a lot of peanuts in them, but the Kirkland Signature Mixed Nuts don’t even have whole peanuts in the jar! The jar contains a mix of cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, pecans and macadamia nuts – a perfect snack to have out around Christmastime. This is yet another simple, well-made staple item from Kirkland Signature.
Some people might argue whether or not the Lacey’s Desserts On Us Chocolate Macadamia Milk Chocolate Cookies are actually cookies. You could argue that they’re more like a chocolate. Call them what you want, they’re absolutely heavenly. They’re crispy, sweet, chocolatey and nutty. Be forewarned though, every single person who tries these cookies talks about how addictive they are!
Who can resist the combination of salty and sweet? The Costco Snack Factory White Chocolate & Peppermint Pretzel Crisps nail this blend perfectly while adding a lot of satisfying crunch for good measure! These festive treats don’t last long in our house.
This sticky date cake with a buttery toffee sauce that’s heated in the oven is so rich, sweet and decadent! It pairs amazingly well with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and is sure to warm your belly during the holiday season. A little slice is all I need to feel completely satisfied.
I usually don’t enjoy peppermint bark, but I do enjoy the Kirkland Signature Peppermint Bark. The bark isn’t overly sweet and the chocolate tastes like decent quality, rich white and dark chocolate. There are peppermint candy cane fragments sprinkled all over the top of the bark, which gives it a nice crunchy texture!
I’ve tried a lot of Christmas chocolates from Costco and I think the Gudrun chocolates are better than most. They taste more premium than the other chocolates I’ve reviewed if that makes sense. I also found the different flavors very pleasing. If you’re looking to gift someone chocolates, I recommend these Gudrun ones. On top of tasting great, the packaging is very nice.
The Lindt Lindor Assorted Chocolates are the most amazing simple, high-quality chocolates. They melt in your mouth, are so smooth and unbelievably creamy. I promise you, they do not disappoint! The box includes milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and hazelnut versions of these classic chocolates. My favorite is the milk chocolate one in the red wrapper for sure.
The Truffettes De France White Chocolate Peppermint Bites are new to my Costco this year! They’re a white chocolate coated chocolate truffles with bits of candy cane adding some peppermint flavor. They’re delicious and totally festive!
