Vegan Halloween Recipes FAQ
Whether you prefer chocolate or fruity candy, there are many vegan candy options available at mainstream grocery stores and drugstores. If you have a sweet tooth, try a spooky cookie or cake recipe or indulge in a caramel apple. Feeling healthy? Get your veggies in with a dinner of roasted seasonal vegetables, pumpkin soup, and stuffed squash.
Yes, vegans can trick or treat, but some non-vegan candies will likely end up in your Halloween pail. Trade, donate, or give away your unwanted milk chocolate, gelatin-laden gummies, and confectioner’s glaze-coated bites in favor of vegan sweets like dairy-free dark chocolate, hard candies, pectin-based gummies, and licorice.
Some popular vegan-friendly Halloween candies include Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, Twizzlers, Laffy Taffy, Skittles, and most hard candies. For chocolate, try Unreal Dark Chocolate Gems, Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups, or NadaMoo’s chocolates. Some common non-vegan ingredients in candy include milk, whey, gelatin, and confectioner’s glaze.
No, candy corn is not vegan because most brands use gelatin and confectioner’s glaze. Avoid the YumEarth Organic Candy Corn too—while YumEarth offers many vegan options, this product unfortunately contains egg whites. If you love candy corn, your best bet is to make it yourself with a vegan candy corn recipe.
If you’d like to avoid handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, try handing out small toys, pencils, or healthy snacks like trail mix packets, granola bars, or sunflower seeds. At home, kids will enjoy healthier dinner and snack options like jack-o-lantern stuffed orange peppers, pumpkin bread, and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Poison Apple Cocktail Recipe
- 2 kiwis large

- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 ½ ounces sour apple schnapps liquor
- 1 ½ ounces vodka
- ¼-½ cup sugar
- 2-3 drops black food coloring
- 1 slice lime
- 2 slices Granny Smith apple
- To make the black sugar, stir together the sugar and black food coloring in a small, wide bowl until the food coloring coats the sugar. Add more sugar or food coloring as needed.
- Rub a slice of lime on the rim of 2 martini glasses, then roll the edges in the black sugar until coated. Set aside.
- Peel and slice or chop the kiwis.
- Blend kiwi in a blender or mash kiwi by hand to make a smooth puree. Make sure to not blend too much so the seeds don’t get pulverized.

- Pour the remaining ingredients into the cocktail shaker, then shake until mixed.
- Immediately pour the drink into the prepared martini glasses.
- Garnish with apple slices and serve.
- Make sure to peel all the skin off the kiwi and cut off any tough parts of the kiwi fruit before blending so the kiwi puree is smooth.

- You can replace the simple syrup with flavored syrup in apple or kiwi flavor for additional flavor such as Monin or Torani brand.
