There’s a reason the chocolate and syrup drizzles on our cheesecakes don’t all look the same… Each is done by hand from our team with love (which we think makes it even sweeter)!

CHCAlthough our small family business relies on industrial ovens, mixers and other equipment to help us fill orders for, all natural desserts across the country, there are some things we insist we must continue to do by hand. We are proud to provide beautiful sweets that you can feel proud to serve to your friends and family.

Sweet Secrets is a series we created to share fun and quirky unknown facts about our sinfully delicious desserts. You can find our cheesecakes at amazing retailers including, Vegetarian Haven, Loving Hut, Michael Angelo’s Market, Nature’s Emporium, Qi Natural Foods, Highland Farms, Essence of Life, many Loblaws locations, Fiesta Farms, GTA Healthy Planet locations, GTA Whole Foods Market locations, or order directly from us and pick up at our office at 234 Canarctic Drive.

Our favourite way to cool down on hot days is with ice cream sandwiches! They’re always a hit at the cottage, after the game, at the family bbq, or anytime that calls for delicious fun.

So, who is the genius we should all give thanks to for inventing the ice cream sandwich? According to The New York Times, which cites the book  Of Sugar and Snow: A History of Ice Cream Making, by Jeri Quinzio, the credit is given to a New York City pushcart peddler in 1899. The original incarnation was a smear of ice cream between two thin graham wafers that were revolutionary not only because they provided a hand-held option for ice cream but also because they conducted the heat of the eater’s hands to the frozen treat, allowing it to be more easily consumed.

The secret recipe:

  1. Choose a cookie. The best part is there is no wrong choice. The best cookie is one you’re craving most!
  2. Choose your favourite vegan ice cream. Scoop onto one of your cookies, and pop the other cookie on top to close your sandwich. We love, and have enjoyed many ice cream sandwiches made with Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss and So Delicious cashew-based and soy-based ice creams.
  3. Roll your sandwich in your favourite add-ons. Smashed chocolate bits, sprinkles, coconut flakes all work and taste great.
  4. Enjoy!

Tips + Tricks:

Sure, carrots might not be an obvious choice for dessert, but that makes us love it even more. We feel that by making organic carrots the top ingredient in our Spiced Carrot Cake, you get a dessert that’s not only delicious, but makes you feel a bit better about indulging a moist, sweet, and slightly spiced dessert.
