Although we may have just dipped our toes into autumn, it’s hard to keep holiday sesason thoughts at bay. And this Dolly Parton-themed advent calendar from Williams-Sonoma isn’t helping.

Called the “Holly Dolly Advent Calendar,” this 25-day box of treats is almost too pretty to use. It features an illustration of the queen of country framed in a wreath of holly and poinsettias. Although this portrait belongs hung on the wall, the treats inside are too tasty not to open.

“For country music legend Dolly Parton, the holiday season is all about faith, family, food and fun,” the Williams Sonoma listing reads. “This year, she provides plenty of sweet surprises for everyone with her very own advent calendar.”

Each window of the advent calendar hides Dolly’s favorite individually wrapped candies including strawberry-flavored Red Poles, gummy butterflies, classic red-and-white swirl mints, gumdrops covered in white nonpareils, gooey caramel bites, and sour Santa gummies (to name just a handful).

And the Holly Dolly sweetness doesn’t stop there. Williams-Sonoma is also selling a Dolly Parton cookie baking kit again this year, filled with eight classic cookie shapes, 12 icing bags, four decorating tips, and a plastic coupler.

The set is inspired by her songs and childhood Christmases spent in the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and the entire kit-and-kaboodle oozes nostalgia.

With 24 days of treats to eat and an endless supply of holiday cookies to bake, this Christmas will certainly be a Holly Dolly one.
