Vegan Buffalo Chicken Dip with Ranch Cheese and Crispy Bread Cubes

Say hello to your new favourite game day dip: vegan Buffalo chicken dip with crispy bread cubes! Typically, buffalo chicken dip contains a whole lot of dairy- including ranch dressing. However, I decided to switch it up and make a homemade ranch-style cheese sauce to go on top. It gives you that herby ranch flavour without having to buy expensive vegan ranch dressing! Not only are you getting the recipe for this creamy, spicy, favourite but also some delicious toasted bread cubes for dipping!

These vegan pretzel bites are made using plant-based sausages, pizza dough, and are then baked and topped with sesame seeds.

Sheet Pan Quesadillas with Avocado Lime Cream

Quesadillas are such a delicious food, but I often shy away from making them because they tend to be a bit messy to cook! This recipe, however, is so quick and easy to prepare. I love using a sheet pan for quesadillas because it keeps everything contained and there’s no flipping required! Plus this method makes it easy to make a bunch of servings for a watch party.

Sweet Vegan Snacks for Game Day

If you’re like me, then you’ve got a serious sweet tooth. After everyone has demolished the savoury vegan snacks for game day, treat them to these sweet treats. You’ll find more than one new dessert favourite in this list of sweet vegan snacks for game day!

Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Vegan Chex Mix

This vegan chex mix is very similar to my herb & garlic savoury vegan snack mix listed above, except that it’s sweet! A variety of crunchy snacks are coated in melted vegan butter and cinnamon sugar for an incredible sweet snack. It’s so easy to make and you can make a pan of each flavour at the same time!

Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cookie Bars

These. are. the. best. thing. ever. I mean, if you like chocolate. I set out to make some crunchy cereal cookie bars with a caramel layer and dip them in chocolate. But that’s so much work, and this caramel doesn’t firm up as well in the fridge (and after a few days would be kind of liquid on top of the bars due to the moisture). SO, I decided to swirl the caramel with the melted chocolate on top so that it would help the caramel harden. And let me tell you, it firms up to the PERFECT chewy caramel texture. Your guests will love these bars!

Vegan Chocolates with Vanilla Cream

These vegan chocolates with vanilla cream may seem like they’re more suited to date night, but they’re a bite-sized dessert so I think they are a great option if you need sweet vegan snacks for game day. These little homemade chocolates are smooth and creamy and wrapped in a coating of chocolate that has the perfect *crack* when you bite into them.

Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Cookie Bars (6 ingredients!)

These snickerdoodle cheesecake cookie bars are not only one of my dessert obsessions and only require 6 ingredients!!! It really doesn’t get easier than this. I shared these bars with a ton of family and friends to get their opinion, since it was kind of a random recipe, and they got rave reviews from every single person! This makes them the perfect sweet treat for game day parties.

No bake nougat protein bites are sneaky nutrient dense little energy balls with a few simple ingredients—but taste like you’re eating dessert! Gluten-free, refined sugar-free and completely vegan, these will be your new favourite healthy dessert!

Gooey Flourless Chocolate Chip Banana Pretzel Bars

Gooey flourless chocolate chip banana pretzel bars… like banana bread and gooey blondie bars had a baby! Banana and almond base with dark chocolate and salted pretzel bits on top! Bonus: these bars are flourless (and gluten-free if you omit the pretzels or use GF pretzels!). These bars are incredibly easy to make, we’re talking minimal effort for maximum deliciousness!

Easy Vegan Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies (Dairy-Free!)

These easy chocolate chip cookies are filled with Oreo crumbles to make a super soft, Oreo creme filled chewy weeknight-friendly dessert. Melty chocolate chips and our famous cookie dough recipe make for an amazing egg-free, soy-free and dairy-free cookie recipe. These are so easy to make but the perfect handheld dessert for watching the big game!

Birthday Cake Truffles with Cookie Crumbs

These birthday cake truffles with cookie crumbs are crumbled cake bound together into a paste consistency with vanilla milk (oat milk plus vanilla extract). Then, they are dipped in a simple glaze and then rolled in my famous Liv B vegan chocolate chip cookies that have been blitzed in a food processor until finely crumbled. They are then rolled in sprinkles or cocoa powder (I like to do some of each)!
