Halloween Knock-off Candy Recipes

Halloween is only a few days away, which means it's the start to the season of sweets and unhealthy treats all around!

Buying packaged candy is simple, but how do you feel after you eat it?

Not the best, I'm sure.

I hate the feeling so I decided to do a roundup of healthy knock-offs to classic favorites.

Yes, snickers, peanut butter cups and more can all be made healthy. The best part is these recipes won't give you a sugar rush or headache afterward.

Don't worry, your taste buds won't be compromised. This is how you can have your candy and eat it too!


No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Bars 

These no-bake peanut butter cup bars are one of the best chocolate fixes ever.

After eating these there is no going back to the cups in an orange package.

The simple ingredients and no-bake method make this tasty treat a win-win.

You can also see how to make it plus a few other healthy treats in this video produced by yours truly.

Homemade M&M's 

This is a brilliant recipe!

Homemade M&M's might not be as colorful as the regular ones, but who cares because those artificial dyes have been linked to long-term health problems like cancer.

I bet these would be so good with cashews and cashew butter – I'm going to try that.

Joyful Almond Coconut Chocolate Bites 

You might recall the theme song to the candy bar this one was inspired from, but these Joyful Almond Coconut Chocolate Bites are far from unhealthy.

Unlike the ones in the red and blue packaging, these are not only vegan, but also gluten-free with a refined sugar-free option.

Homemade Snickers Bar 

Who doesn't love a snickers bar? It use to be a favorite until discovering it has three different kinds of processed sugar in it which are sugar, corn syrup, and lactose totaling to 7 teaspoons of sugar.

Now this homemade snickers bar is even more decadent and it's only sweetened with dates.

There will be no crash after this treat and even kids won't notice the difference. They're delicious!


Enjoy these no-guilt treats and I promise you won’t have a candy hangover this weekend.
