Halloween Candy Hacks!

Oct 11, 2023 | By: Natural Delights

Halloween is upon us again, and although we love a good candy bar, the thought of endless piles of sugar has us spooked! So join us in saying BOO to processed treats and instead indulge in candy that tastes and makes us feel good. Here are our team’s favorite Halloween candy picks and the recipe hacks that will give you a sweet experience with less refined sugar thanks to wholesome Medjool dates.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups

We agree that this is the simplest candy to replicate, so if you just make one swap this year, it should be this one. It’s our favorite Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups (bonus: there’s pumpkin…need I say more?). These are scary easy to make and everyone loves them!


Snickers Stuffed Dates

Peanuts, chocolate, and caramel-y goodness, oh my! Don’t settle for palm oil and artificial flavoring when you can get all the irresistibly sweet and salty flavor you love in a Snickers with this Snickers Stuffed Dates recipe!



If you love the chocolate-y goodness of Raisinets then you’ll die for our Truffles! These bite-sized, chocolate-covered Medjool dates come in three indulgent flavors including Chocolate Blueberry, Chocolate Cherry, and Dark Chocolate with Probiotics. They are the perfect pop-able chocolate treat, plus, they have the added benefit of potassium, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.


Pecan and Medjool Date Caramel Clusters

This fang-tastic treat doesn’t need corn syrup and artificial flavors to taste delicious, thanks to Medjool dates! These Pecan and Medjool Date Caramel Clusters are the perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, and are a major upgrade for the original.

Almond Joy Almond Joy Dates

If you can’t resist the chewy, sweet, and nutty combination of Almond Joys, you’ll scream for this Almond Joy Stuffed Date recipe. They’re naturally sweetened with Medjool dates and dipped in dreamy dark chocolate. Because of the Medjool dates’ natural size and shape, these also look just like the beloved candy bar!
