Dairy-free Christmas treats

It is our first Christmas since we have been told my dd (8) is dairy-intolerant. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacement Christmas treats for her? I saw some dairy-free chocolate coins in Sainsburys and have just found dark chocolate christmas trees on Ocado that might be suitable. I want to make a big effort so that she doesn't feel left out when the rest of the family are eating nice treats as she has been quite sad about some of the dietary changes we have had to make. I bake so it is not a problem making all our cakes and biscuits dairy-free, although can you buy dairy-free mince pies?
Any ideas much appreciated....

Tesco value mince pies are milk, egg and soya free. And taste just amazing.

Dairy free mince pies are easy, iustroll puff, dairy free mincemeat (most are, but do check), and brush with egg.

Alpro cream is fine.

Yy to divine chocs, yummy. It mi htbe worth making most things dairy free so it's less of an issue.

Holland and Barrett do a great dairy free advent calendar for just
£3.19. !! They also have a good range of dairy free christmas treats.

Have just found Coles christmas pudding which is egg and dairy free. And gluten and wheat free. Might do the trick on Christmas day 2yo with egg and dairy allergy. And she gobbles up jus rol pastry and waitrose mincemeat mince pies - very very easy to make. Will be stocking up on mincemeat and jus rol and sausage meat to make my own mincepies and sausage rolls and pretend I am a do it all mum.

The Santa/snowmen gingerbread biscuits in Sainsbury's are dairy free.

Can also recommend vegan marshmallows and nougat. Just ordered (and received some).

I googled and after eight mints used to be dairy free but aren't any more.
