It just wouldn’t be the holiday season with sweet treats. Many people hit the kitchen during this time of year to bake up special goodies to give as gifts, while others serve them on dessert trays at parties. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite vegan holiday treats that are perfect for either. We suspect that Santa would love just about anything from this list along with a glass of cold almond milk on Christmas Eve!
