15 Last-Minute Vegan 2017 Halloween Candy Recipes You Can Make In Under An Hour
Like most holidays, Halloween can be a tricky time for vegans — no pun intended. It basically revolves around food and candy, but so many popular treats are totally not vegan-friendly. That is why it helps to know how to make vegan Halloween candy recipes so you can get in on the fun. It also gives you bragging rights at the next festive Halloween party.
Granted, you might already know what Halloween candy is vegan. Sour Patch Kids, Airheads, and Skittles are the perfect examples. Yet, these candies are the super fruity. What about the delicious chocolate treats? Usually, store-bought chocolate treats are made with dairy- which is off limits for vegans — so, that is where this list comes in.
Think Kit Kats, Twix, and Rolo... but free of animal ingredients. Yes, you read that right. Some of the best vegan bloggers around the web have figured how to turn classic, store-bought favorites into vegan Halloween recipes.
Even if you are not vegan, these Halloween treats will open up new food techniques and possibilities. You might even use ingredients that you normally would not try. At the very least, your sweet tooth will be able to indulge in a way that is so nutritious, it is practically creepy.
1. Vegan York Peppermint Patties
Fellow fans of peppermint, this one is for you. Chocolate Covered Katie gives the classic candy a vegan spin, complete with creamy coconut butter. Indulging is highly encouraged.
2. Raw Chocolate Maca Protein Truffles
Truffles might be fancier than most Halloween candies, but in this neck of the woods, they're welcome all year round. These raw chocolate versions by My Darling Vegan are made with maca protein powder, giving you the most bang for your bite.
3. Vegan Butterfingers
Butterfingers are another classic, but Chocolate Covered Katie has figured out how to make them vegan. Bran flakes, agave, and peanut butter are just some of the delicious ingredients needed.
4. Vegan Candy Corn
Nothing says "autumn" quite like candy corn. Unfortunately, most brands use gelatin, so it's a no-go for vegans. Chocolate Covered Katie has come to the rescue, though.
5. Vegan Candy Coated Marshmallows
When you're in a pinch, go for something sweet and simple like these candy-coated marshmallows by The Misfit Baker. It gives you the perfect excuse to buy the most festive Halloween sprinkles you can find.
6. Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge
Halloween wouldn't be complete without pumpkin, so why not make some pumpkin-infused fudge? Chocolate Covered Katie used coconut butter, pumpkin puree, and agave to make these tasty treats.
7. Vegan Chocolate Orange Truffles
Orange might be associated with summer, but it's just as delicious in the fall. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove powder to Simple Vegan Blog's recipe for a seasonal spin.
8. Vegan Pumpkin Seed Bon Bons
These bon bons by The Misfit Baker sound cute, look cute, and probably taste pretty darn wonderful. With a filling made of pumpkin seed butter and tofu cream cheese, how can it not?
9. Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups
Peanut butter cups are delicious and all, but bringing in vegan cookie dough is basically brilliant. Chocolate Covered Katie even uses chickpeas for an added punch of protein.
10. Mini Crunch Bars With Peanut Butter Shell Drizzle
These mini crunch bars are so good, that they can't even be compared to store-bought candy. Oh She Glows used brown rice crisps for a Rice Krispie-like crunch. And can we just talk about that homemade peanut butter shell drizzle?
11. Copycat Almond Joy Candy Bar
If you have been missing Almond Joys, have no fear, because Vegan In The Freezer is here. A vegan version is surprisingly easy to make. But of course, don't forget the candy eyes for top-notch Halloween vibes.
12. Homemade Crispy Twix Bars
Vegan Twix are also possible, people. In this recipe, Oh She Glows demonstrates how to combine decadent layers of crispy, gooey, and chocolatey goodness. You won't even miss the store-bought kind after this.

Oh She Glows is at it again with vegan Kit Kat bars. There's even homemade coconut chocolate whipped cream involved, so you know they are going to be good.
14. Homemade "Rolo" Knock-Offs
But wait, there's more. Rolo candies are also store-bought faves, but with Oh She Glows' brilliant mind, you can veganize them. Mejdool dates and peanut butter are used for a sweet and fudge-like consistency.
15. 4-Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
For a quick and easy treat, try Amuse Your Bouche's 4-ingredient fudge. Feel free to throw in a little (or a lot) of pumpkin spice for a Halloween touch.
