It’s almost time!! Lights, presents, good food, family and friends. My favorite time of the year! It’s also one of the most stressful times for me. Between blog work and prepping to host Christmas dinner, to doing all I can as a mom to make it magical for my kids, I tend to go a little nuts. Which is why I LOVE having last minute gift ideas for those I may have forgotten. Enter vegan candy cane brownie bites. Little pillows of soft, chocolatey peppermint perfection.
The base of these vegan brownie bites comes from my favorite brownies I created a while back, Perfect Date Sweetened Brownies. They have the most amazing texture and I have always wanted to do more with them. So I added some peppermint flavor, made little balls of dough, baked them to a soft chewy texture, and smothered them with chocolate and crushed candy cane. It made the perfect gift!
You can even put them in cute jars so it looks like you slaved for hours putting effort into the present. But I won’t tell, promise 😉 We gave them to all of our teachers and even a few friends. I also brought them to all my holiday cookie parties. Who knew that vegan brownie bites would be such a hit!
Along with these delicious bites of goodness, I have a few other amazing yummy treats that would make awesome gifts. First, my friend Brandi from The Vegan 8 has paired with this uber cool company called Cake in a Crate. I mean, does it get any better than a cake in a crate?! She created this to die for vegan vanilla chocolate chip cake with fudge ganache. I may or may not have had this for dinner the day I reviewed it for her. Holidays right? (Don’t judge I know you’ve had those holidays cookies for dinner!)
But really though, this is hands down the easiest way to make a cake. The box comes with everything you need, most are even pre-measured. So all you do is throw it together, mix, pour it in a pan, and bake. Then repeat with the ganache. Barely any effort and you get a moist, amazing cake that you can even serve for dinner and call it a day. Remember the no judging thing? It goes both ways.

A few other awesome gifts that I have created in the past are my Gingerbread Sugar Body Scrub and my Sweet, Spicy and Salty Hot Chocolate Mix. The body scrub smells so good you’ll want to eat it and it feels amazing on your body! The hot chocolate mix is the perfect winter treat and it’s awesome to have laying around for when that chocolate craving attacks. So like daily.
So let’s recap on the perfect gifts:
- Vegan Candy Cane Brownie Bites
- Vegan Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cake in a Crate
- Gingerbread Sugar Body Scrub

Get on it friends! All quick and easy gifts that are sure to nab you that new best friend! Happy holidays to all you amazing readers!
