The Ultimate Vegan Halloween Candy Guide!

HALLOWEEN_vegan candy

Navigating the treacherous non-vegan waters of the candy isle can now be as much fun as Halloween itself! Here is a guide to Halloween candy that is dairy, egg, honey, cochineal, and gelatin-free. Some are more expensive than the others because they are healthier and are made with high-quality ingredients such as the raw bars and cookies (get them for your kids! They need to know how special they are). If you want to be conscientious all the way give the children who are going to knock on your door real treats ie, healthy sweets such as dried fruits, which may be a lot cheaper for you too. Organic, sun-dried (ie raw), and unsulphured dried fruits are best. Also, check out snack categories 1, 3, 4, and 5 here.

Creamed Cheese Brownies with Salted Dark Chocolate Topping

Creamed Cheese Layer: 1 cup soaked cashews 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 3 tbsp water 1 tbsp pure maple syrup 2 tbsp vanilla non-dairy yogurt (if using coconut yogurt instead of soy, add another 1 tsp lemon juice) 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/8 tsp (rounded) sea salt Brownie Layer: 1 cup + 2 tbsp sifted (or light) spelt flour ¾ cup unrefined sugar ½ tsp sea salt 1/3 cup cocoa powder 1 ½ tsp baking powder 1 tbsp arrowroot powder 3 tbsp pure maple syrup 1 tsp pure vanilla extract ¼ cup + 1 tbsp plain or vanilla non-dairy milk 3½ tbsp neutral-flavored oil Topping: 1/3 – ½ cup chocolate chunks (use a good quality dark chocolate bar, and break/ cut into small chunks) Few pinches coarse sea salt Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square cake pan with parchment paper. Prepare cream cheese layer: Puree all those ingredients with an immersion or high-speed blender until very, very smooth (a mini food processor can also be used, but it usually doesn’t produce as smooth a texture as does an immersion blender). Process for several minutes, if necessary, until very smoothed out. Prepare the brownie layer: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt, and sift in the cocoa and baking powder. In a small bowl, first combine the arrowroot with the maple syrup, stirring until smooth, then add the vanilla, milk, and oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry. Stir until evenly mixed and thick. Transfer about two-thirds of the mixture to the prepared pan. Use a square of parchment to help the press mixture into the pan evenly and spread it out. Spread the cream cheese layer over the top. Then, as best as you can, spread the remaining brownie batter over the cheese layer. You can take pieces and lightly spread first with your fingers and place in patches over the cream cheese layer—and it doesn’t have to fully cover; there can be spaces—most will fill in and come together while baking. Add the topping: Place the chocolate chunks on top, and then sprinkle with the salt. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan, running a spatula around the outer edge to loosen. (The brownies will appear not fully cooked, but do not cook longer—I repeat, do not cook longer! Instead, let cool and they will become fudgy!) Once cooled, score the brownies with a sharp knife to ease cutting the chocolate before it completely hardens. Then refrigerate brownies to cool more, cut into squares and dig in! Makes 16-20 brownies. If This Apron Could Talk: Trust the baking process! The amount of batter used for the base—and then topping— looks like it cannot possibly fill out to form a beautiful brownie. Lucky for us, the oven creates some magic in about half an hour!

Just be careful some of the stuff listed on this list contains Palm Oil which like dairy, meat and other products directly harms animals (in this case orangutans) and is destroying the environment in a major way. I am not just talking the loss of the orangutan habitat but the fact that they are used as prostitutes and slaves or just murdered out right to help clear the land. There is no sustainable palm oil, it is a myth put out by those who wish to continue producing and profiting off of palm oil. It was what many industries will do to make you buy their products and not consider what actually goes on to produce them. Yes palm oil is in a lot of products and yes it is hard to give up because of that but we should all make a conscious effort to do so. It is very possible and fairly practical to give up palm oil it just might take a touch of extra work. However I would rather have a little extra work to save animals than go on exploiting them for something I really don't need. I think for many of these companies it is just a matter of getting in touch with them and trying to get them to move away from palm and if we raise our voices I think they will get the message and change.
