Halloween is creeping up on us! Day by day, I’ve been checking off my list of everything I want to do leading up to Halloween. I watched Hocus Pocus, went to see the Halloween villains parade at Disneyland with my fiance, and bought a ridiculous amount of pumpkin everything (mini pumpkins, pumpkin napkins, pumpkin trick-or-treat buckets, pumpkin lantern).
Now, I’ve got Halloween candy on my mind, so I rounded up this list of 6 chocolatey vegan Halloween candy recipes for you to sink your teeth into! If you’re a candy lover like me, then you’ll definitely enjoy making these healthier Halloween candy recipes over the next week.
This weekend is actually a big holiday here in Hong Kong, known as the Mid-Autumn or Full Moon Festival. My boyfriend got off work on Friday, so we turned it into a fun 3-day weekend staycation full of sushi dinners, horror movies, and long walks outside. I decided I’d pass on the traditional dessert of mooncakes in favor of these raw vegan caramel tarts. They’re full of a creamy, dreamy date caramel on top of a delicious raw cookie dough base.
Date squares make the best sweet treat! They’re amazingly gooey in the middle with a oat cookie base, chewy date caramel middle, and rawnola crumble topping. You only need 4 simple ingredients and less than 15 minutes to whip these up! And best part is they’re completely vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, low-fat, and no-bake. Meaning they make the perfect, easy allergy-friendly treat when you’re craving sweets in a hurry.
