Halloween is my ultimate favourite holiday. I hope you find this helpful, and that it inspires you to get creative with making all sorts of Vegan delights and in making new traditions for your friends and family! I am thrilled to share these goodies with you.
Homemade Traditional Treats
These are a classic, but are traditionally concocted with dairy and corn syrup. Here is a delicious healthier version I have come across for Vegan Caramels.
16 Natural Medjool Dates
¼ Cup Non-Dairy Milk of Choice
¼ Cup Melted Coconut Oil
1½ Tablespoons Peanut Butter (or other nut butter)
1½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
6 Granny Smith Apples
Mini Vegan Chocolate Chips
Melted Vegan Chocolate
Vegan Candies any other ideas you can come up with!
Go to “It doesn’t taste like chicken.com” website for the rest of the instructions!
These are super cute, healthy, easy and delicious!
Dandies Vegan Marshmallows
Tiny chocolate chips
Cut each apple into four pieces, cut off the core, make a V shape slit in the outer edge of each 1/4 apple. Thinly slice a few strawberries, fill the V with peanut butter and place the sunflower seeds as teeth and the strawberry slices as the tongue. Create two(or 1 or 3!) eyes by attaching marshmallows to a dab of peanut butter and chocolate chips as the pupils! This would be super fun and easy for kids to make!
Vegan Meringue Eye Ball/ Ghostie Cookies :
It is actually crazy what you can do with Chickpea Brine!
The liquid from 1, 19oz can of Unsalted Chickpeas (about 1 cup of liquid)
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
¼ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
¾ Cup White Sugar
Dark Chocolate chips
Go to “It doesn’t taste like Chicken.com” for the rest of the instructions! (get creative with the chocolate!)
Vegan Lemon Candy Corn
Okay, so this was in last years Halloween post, what what do you think of when you see a Candy Corn?!? Halloween just isn’t Halloween with out these tasty treats, and with this recipe, you can enjoy them without corn syrup, gelatin, eggs, beeswax, or artificial colour!
1 C. sugar
3/4 C. brown rice syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 1/2 C. powdered sugar
1/3 C. soymilk powder
1/4 tsp. salt
For those of you who are on the go, and want to provide Vegan treats for the Trick-or-treaters, check out this list from PETA! “It’s the perfect mix of classic and contemporary vegan candy, and each of these treats is sure to hit the sweet spot this Halloween season. These treats contain no milk, eggs, or other animal-derived ingredients.”
FYI: What are some common non-vegan ingredients found in Candy?
Gelatine: (Produced with animal skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and/or bones.)
Carmine Color: (Red pigment from the crushed female cochineal insect.)
Confectioner’s Glaze: (Made from the resinous excretions of certain insects.)
Thank you for tuning in, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN from Rhiannon!
