Top of the holiday treats in Vancouver!

Fact: Christmas cookies taste better when they’re in the shape of a snowman. Doughnuts taste better when they look like snowballs. And calories don’t count if you’re wearing a Santa hat while you’re eating. (We can dream, right?) In case you need an excuse to treat yourself over the holidays, here are some Vancouver bakeries and chocolatiers that are in the festive spirit and are serving up all sorts of delicious holiday goodies.

The best (and cutest) holiday treats in Vancouver!

Butter Baked Goods is a must-go at any time of year, but their holiday treats are a delicious delight over the hols. Think decorated sugar cookies in the shape of Santas, Grinch faces and snowmen, snowflakes and snow globes. They also have gingerbread cookies, mini gingerbread houses, and tons of classics from fruitcake and panettone, rum balls and shortbread to peppermint Nanaimo bars and chocolate bark.
