Trick or treat anyone this Halloween with these recipe ideas for homemade vegan Halloween candy.
Having a closer look at the ingredients of most commercially available Halloween candy, it was likely to have been brewed-up in Dr. Frankenstein’s lab. Why not make some healthier & vegan Halloween candy at home while having full control over what and how much of the ingredients you use?
1. Energy Balls
You only need a few healthy ingredients to make sweet and healthy energy balls yourself. For Halloween, you could coat them with white chocolate and decorate with dark chocolate chips to look like eyeballs. You could also prepare them in spooky ghost, bat or pumpkin shapes, simply by using cookie cutters, like these cute ones I found on Amazon:
2. Coconut Bounty Bars/ Mounds Bars
Not only are these coconut chocolate bars quick and easy to make, but also healthier than the original. Instead of bars form into a fingers shape and decorate accordingly to make them look like witch fingers.
3. Homemade White or Dark Chocolates
It’s super easy to make chocolate yourself. No matter, if you prefer dark, white, creamy or firm – there’s a recipe for everyone. Obviously, you don’t want to make Easter bunnies for Halloween, as seen in one of the pictures above. Instead, you could use Halloween chocolate molds, like these:
4. Coconut Bliss Balls (Raffaello)
Decorated with chocolate chips as pupils, these coconut bliss balls aka Raffaello make great eyeballs for your Halloween party.
5. Choco Bons
With their smooth creamy (and hazelnut crunchy) center, these chocolates are vegan and healthier than the original, while tasting just as delicious. They make a great treat, not only for Easter.
6. Fruit Jellies
The basic recipe for these gummy treats calls for some liquid, such as fruit juice/ purée or (nut) milk, mixed with agar agar and a sweetener such as maple syrup. Use the same Halloween chocolate molds that you used for the Halloween chocolates to give these treats a spooky shape for Halloween.
7. Marzipan Chocolates
These marzipan chocolates are very easy to make with only three ingredients while having full control over what and how much of the ingredients you use.
