It’s the last day of Vegan MoFo and I am celebrating with a big ol’ batch of homemade gluten-free vegan Twix bars. Who’s with me?

themeSometimes the annoying thing about making homemade treats that are without gluten, eggs, and dairy is that they end up being time-consuming. A lot of people ask if I will just ship them the candy I have been making because it’s too much work to make them at home, to which my reply is: I totally get it. There are those rare moments when you really feel like finding your candy thermometer and making a mess in the kitchen just to get a batch of Homemade Heath Bars to indulge in.

For my last candy recipe for VeganMoFo, I wanted to make it an easy task to recreate your favorite candy treat available in gluten, egg, and dairy-free form. Today I bring to you No-Bake Homemade Twix Bars.

{If you want a complicated version that tastes just like the real thing, check out my time-consuming version here}

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix - Fork & Beans

The cookie layer is all thanks to Dr, Lucy’s. Have you heard of this cookie brand?

I was introduced to Dr. Lucy’s cookies through my sister a couple of years ago. Her oldest daughter has severe food allergies so finding allergen-free tasty food items has always been a trick (now you might understand why I started Fork & Beans). When I first took a bite of these little treats, I was surprised at how good they tasted. And no, they did not contact me to do a review–I just really support what they are doing.

For Date Caramel
  1. 4 Medjool Dates, pits removed (optional: soaked)
  2. 1 Tb water
  3. 1-2 tsp. agave nectar (depends on taste)
  4. 1 tsp. coconut oil
  5. 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

For Date Caramel
  1. Mix all ingredients into a high-speed blender for 3-5 minutes, or until smooth. If it's too thick, add 1 tsp water at a time. You want it thick enough to blend but not runny.
  2. Place into the fridge to cool.
  3. Place 1 tsp, date caramel sauce on top of 1 Lucy sugar cookie. Repeat for each cookie.
  4. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  5. Dip each cookie gently in melted chocolate and fully coat.
  6. Place on a parchment paper-lined plate to set and freeze for 10 minutes.
