Vegan Treats for the Holidays...and a chocolate covered Christmas tree!

It's no secret that I'm quite the fan of Vegan Treats, but I've never been to the Bethlehem shoppe at Christmastime.  This year I was in the immediate area to pick up a holiday gift when I happened to recall a recent tweet by Vegan Treats, showcasing "one pound of the best vegan cookies on the planet":

It had to be mine!

Gingerbreads, thumbprints, chocolate peppermints, Mexican wedding/Russian teacakes, cowboys, iced & sprinkled almond drops, and decorative sugar cookies galore.  My one disappointment in the assortment was that there were none of the famed hazelnut pralines.


I mean really, don't you wish you could just go to any holiday party and find these gorgeous, festive, yummy cookies available for your vegan eating pleasure?


Figuring the cookies would make a fine Christmas breakfast, I couldn't leave without something for actual dessert.  They had many options particular to the holidays, but these were the ones that couldn't be beat: chocolate-covered chocolate chip cheesecake slices on a stick.  Yes, you heard right.  Behold:



Oh, did I forget to mention that I had some ice cream while I was there?  In the interest of full-disclosure...Peanut butter soft serve with (holiday) rainbow sprinkles.


Need I tell you that everything tasted even better than it looked?
