Vegan Recipes for the Halloween Season

Whether you’re in need of a few snacks for a Halloween party or are just looking for something delicious to make, give these tasty vegan recipes a try. By substituting the ingredients, non-vegans are welcome to try out these recipes as well. 

Starting off with the simplest treat to make, these chocolate cups are the best alternative to the classic Reese’s Cups. The ingredients needed are frozen raspberries, rice syrup (any syrup will do), and vegan chocolate. The first step is to heat up a stove and stir the raspberries in a pan until they are soft, mixing in rice syrup until combined. Take the pan off of the heat to cool once finished. Next, melt the chocolate on the stove, adding two thick layers into cupcake liners once fully melted. Remember to add a layer of the raspberry mixture in between the chocolate. Once these have been cooled in the fridge, these chocolate delights are the perfect snack for any occasion.

By transforming them into Frankensteins, the next recipe is a take on the classic rice krispies treat. To make it, stir vegan butter and marshmallows together in a pan on low, adding in organic rice cereal and green food coloring until combined into a sticky mixture. Next, pour the mixture into a pan, patting down gently and leaving to cool for 10 minutes. Once it has been cooled, cut into 6 rectangles and stick onto popsicle sticks. Decorate the rice krispies treats with a chocolate coating for hair, extra marshmallows for bolts, and most importantly, eyes for the little monster.

This last recipe, while more time consuming than the other two listed, will surely be worth the effort. To make Chocolate and Peanut Butter Spiderweb Brownies, wisk peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar, and coconut oil into a caramel-like consistency. Mix in cocoa powder, vanilla extract, flax eggs, and oat flour until everything has been thoroughly combined. After adding in chocolate chips, the batter is ready for the oven. Whisk together water with cocoa powder, maple syrup, and peanut butter for the frosting once finished. More specific details for these brownies are listed in the full recipe below.
