Tailor this recipe to fit a vegan diet by making your own vegan “Snickers” bars and vegan caramel!

Vegan Snickers Salad

The original recipe is already vegetarian, but if you are looking for a vegan option, traditional Snickers bars are not vegan, unfortunately.

The good news is that it’s really easy to make DIY vegan Snickers bars with an Internet search, Medjool dates, unsalted peanuts, peanut butter, plant based milk, vanilla extract, Enjoy Life dairy free (and vegan) chocolate chips, and coconut oil! 

You can also swap out Snickers bars for store-bought vegan candy bars, or vegan candy, like Unreal brand peanut butter cups–the dark chocolate peanut butter cups are amazeballs!

Then, just make your own vegan caramel sauce, buy vanilla almond milk pudding, and dairy-free whipped topping. 

Yield: Serves 10-12
