If you are a new vegan looking for an easy vegan dessert recipe you’ve found it. This is a great recipe when you are craving something sweet, especially an old favorite like a Snicker’s candy bar. The great thing is this tasty dessert recipe only takes 5 ingredients to make. Most of which you might already have in your kitchen. Let’s start creating this delicious dessert.

Gather Ingredients

As I mentioned most of the ingredients you’ll find in the recipe you likely already have in your pantry, on your kitchen table or on your kitchen counter. If not these are vegan staples I’d absolutely recommend you keep on hand.

Here’s what you’ll need for this easy vegan dessert:

  • Peanut butter
  • Date paste
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Bananas (overripe preferred)
  • Crushed peanuts
  • Vanilla Extract (optional)

Equipment needed:

One cooking tip I’ve learned along the way is gathering all of my ingredients saves me time! I do this by collecting all my ingredients and then measuring out what I need. I found this personally makes for a more enjoyable cooking experience. The time up front (which is really at max 10 minutes) saves me tons of time searching and scrambling around the kitchen in the middle of the recipe. Especially with a recipe like this where you want to make sure the chocolate melts properly and doesn’t burn.

Making the Snickers Nougat

To make the chewy Snicker’s center, or candy nougat, you will begin by blending together the peanut butter, overripe banana and vanilla extract (optional). Blend all ingredients until smooth. This is critical in getting the most “authentic” snickers like center.

Once the candy nougat has been created, spoon about one tablespoon or so into each ice mold. Then freezer for at least two hours or overnight.

Putting It All Together

When the candy nougat is sufficiently frozen and you are ready to start again, melt the dark chocolate chips before taking the nougat out of the freezer. (Note: Do not take the nougat out of the freezer until the chocolate has been melted and then slightly cooled but still mixable.)


Melt the dark chocolate chips over low medium heat. Stirring or whisking slowly until the chocolate sauce is smooth. Then allow the sauce to cool briefly, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Once slightly cooled (not hardened), take out the frozen nougat, crushed peanuts and date paste. Top each nougat cube with a small teaspoon of date paste. Then dip this into the melted chocolate. Doing your best to ensure it is completely covered with chocolate. (Note: I used a skewer and stuck it into one side of the nougat cube to dip into the melted chocolate)


As you are working through each cube set them aside on a piece of parchment paper and allow them to harden. But be sure to top with crushed peanuts immediately so the chocolate hardens around the crushed peanuts.
Once finished you can place back in the freezer for 30 mins to an hour and then enjoy! These should store in the freezer for up to one month.
