Halloween weekend is here, which only means one thing- ALL the candy! While I most definitely will be eating the real, store bought chocolates that come my way, I still love creating my own versions of them- with a twist. I rounded up 6 of my favorite homemade candy bars for anyone who loves to play around in the kitchen, and needs dairy-free versions of their favorite treats.
We’ve got Snickers, Twix, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Take5, Butterfingers and Almond Joy! All of these versions are gluten and dairy-free, and can all be made vegan.
These homemade chocolates are SO good, you’ll want to stock your freezer with them all year round. Enjoy, friends 🙂
1. Vegan Snickers
Homemade vegan snickers bars made with dates, nuts, and a few other simple ingredients! These delicious chocolate bars are filled with a creamy date caramel and have a crunchy peanut base.
2. Gluten-free Twix Bars
My personal favorite chocolate bar, vegan twix bars! Shortbread crust with a nut butter caramel and dark chocolate coat- you really can’t go wrong with these! They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and so addicting!
3. Dairy-free Butterfingers
Crunchy and sweet homemade butterfingers! Made with only 6 simple ingredients, and coated in dairy-free chocolate. Trust me, you won’t even miss the real version.
4. Vegan Reese’s Eggs
These peanut butter eggs have the perfect taste and texture, and are just like the real deal. A rich peanut butter filling that’s coated in dark chocolate and topped with sprinkle of sea salt- it doesn’t get much better than that. Feel free to shape them into pumpkins for Halloween!
5. Take 5 Bars
One of my oldest candy recipes- vegan Take 5 Bars! This 5 layer chocolate bar is made with peanut butter, pretzels, date caramel, peanuts, and dairy-free chocolate.
6. Vegan Almond Joy
Last but not least, homemade almond joy! A delicious coconut bar topped with whole almonds, and coated in melted chocolate! They’re vegan, gluten-free, and and made with just 7 simple ingredients.
