If you are anything like me, then any opportunity to experiment with fun treats is an opportunity you won’t miss. I particularly enjoy experimenting with holiday-inspired treats, because special occasions bring me so much joy. Every time snack time comes around, it’s a cause for celebration!
1. Vegan Mummy Hot Dogs
Mummy dogs are the cutest Halloween treat, that will please any crowd – young and old. The sausage centre is wrapped in a flaky, crispy pastry that will make your taste buds dance with happiness and make you forget about the spooky side of the season. They are also much easier to make than you’d think, even with a crumbly pastry! This recipe is an absolute must-try!

2. Home-Made Vegan Candy Eyes
Who doesn’t love a little eye candy? These vegan googly eyes are the perfect touch to any dish you’re trying to make “creepy” for Halloween but are also perfectly enjoyed on its own.

3. Mandarin Orange “Pumpkins”
This snack is so easy, that it doesn’t even require a recipe. You simply peel your mandarin orange and then add a piece of celery stalk to give it the final pumpkin touch. A delicious sweet and spicy treat. Have you ever loved eating mandarin oranges more? I think not!
4. Carrot “Pumpkins” With Spooky Black Bean Hummus
Veggies and hummus is a snack which I enjoy all year round, but I particularly love giving it a Halloween spin by shaping the carrots as little pumpkins and making hummus out of black beans instead of chickpeas. Super easy and super tasty!

Last, but certainly not least, I’m spotlighting store-bought vegan candy. Most vegans don’t know just how much of the sweet treats on our shelves are accidentally vegan, and believe me there are far more than you’d imagine. Aside from the accidentally vegan offerings, there are also plenty of speciality brands, offering vegan versions of traditionally non-vegan candy. My absolute favourite candy is Skittles, and I also swear by vegan marshmallows, particularly the vanilla marshmallows by Freedom Confectionery. Those are a must-try!
