    My favorite Christmas dish (pre-vegan) is Peanut Butter Cheerio Balls (balls of cheerios, peanut butter, powdered sugar and corn syrum dipped in chocolate). My mom and I make these together every year. It should be pretty easy for me to make these vegan and use healthier sugars 🙂

  113. Erin

    My favorite holiday treat is fudge! My grandmother used to make the best not-at-all-vegan chocolate and peanut butter fudge. I haven’t had any since going vegan, I need to try to veganize her recipe!

  117. radiantbeth (@radiantbeth)

    My favorite holiday treat is my grandmother’s “fudge lock” chocolate cake. The hubby has dubbed it “fudge lock” since the icing (that is poured on) forms a seal with the cake stand lid and makes it hard to get to the cake the first time if the lid is put on when it’s still hot/warm. Soooooo yummy. Am new to the raw lifestyle and it’s been a year since I’ve made this recipe, but it’s definitely my all time favorite. Definitely good memories of “Mom-Mom” and my Mother. Would love to find a raw version that’s equally delicious!
