4 simple ingredients, seriously delicious homemade vegan chocolate enjoyed by everyone. I always have a batch of this in the freezer and it is my go to easy dessert when I’m craving something sweet, which is everyday (therefore I usually make a double batch).
Halloween is around the corner and this is a perfect way to celebrate! Instead of buying chocolate which contains animal products, make a difference by making this tasty concoction (plus, bonus it’s healthier).
However, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun! Here is a list of Halloween candy that’s vegan, that you can buy to hand out or give to your kids or eat yourself! There are a couple I don’t recognize but some notable ones are Skittles, Rockets, Sour Patch Kids, Air Heads, Twizzlers, Jolly Ranchers, Fuzzy Peaches and Swedish Berries/Fish (my favourite), plus the mini chip bags (excluding the cheesy ones obviously). So many yummy options!
If you are looking for some more creative options to hand out go to Costco or the bulk food section to get chocolatey granola bars (Ex. mini Cliff bars, Kind bars, Lara Bars), energy balls, chips, and popcorn. This way kids will be excited to get something different in their bag and you are not supporting companies that use animal products.
On to the recipe! This makes more than one serving, but it is good for a snack and then leftover for tomorrow.
