With just a few days left until the 25th, there’s only a limited time to indulge in these festive sweet treats under $5.  From eggnog ice cream to gluten-free minced meat pie, here are a few of Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow’s joyfully sinful desserts.

Maxi’s Deli


At Max’s there are plenty of holiday desserts to choose from that are under $5, like shortbread, snow balls, rum balls, and stollen. While they won’t disappoint, you can’t pass up the eggnog cheesecake for $4.79.

The Last Crumb Bakery and Café
