Missing your favourite chocolate bar from your pre-vegan days? Have a go at making your own at home!

Many of us will have grown up tucking into Snickers and Mars bars, and whilst we have more options for vegan chocolates on offer to us than ever before, sometimes we miss the tastes and textures of our old favourites.

Thankfully many of the most popular nostalgic chocolate bars you’ll find in shops across the UK are simple to recreate at home using a vegan recipe.

Whether you’re a caramel fan or go nuts for nutty bars, here are some delicious recipes for homemade vegan chocolate bars you can make at home.

1. Salted Caramel Chocolate Bars

This grown-up vegan version of a Snickers bar takes it to the next level with salted caramel and nutty almond nougat. Not only are these bars vegan, they’re also gluten-free, refined sugar-free and raw using dates to make a luscious caramel.
