Good Morning! Do you have a canine companion or any friends who have doggies? Do you ever share your food with your pooch? My sweet girl Shelly loves all kinds of vegetables and fruits (everything from banana, carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, to blueberries). She would like just about anything that I eat, but unfortunately there are certain things she cannot eat due to allergies. Also, some foods are toxic or dangerous for dogs. One of those things is chocolate. If I could, I would share my Go Max Go candy bars with Shelly, but chocolate is very bad for dogs. Since I love candy bars and love spoiling my little girl, I decided to create a doggie friendly Go Max Go Mahalo and Jokerz bars treats. These are beautiful, easy to make (no bake), and delicious (yes, you can enjoy them with your doggie). They will keep in the fridge for about a week, but you can freeze them to extend their freshness. If you freeze them, defrost them at a room temperature before serving. You can add some oats, mashed chickpeas, shredded carrots, or pureed pumpkin, or other ingredients that you like. I made these for dogs with allergies and sensitivities to grains, but they will make any dog happy. Let’s make some truffles!
Doggie Mahalo Truffles (Carob, Almond and Coconut)
1 cup almonds (no salt or oil added)
1 Tbs carob powder
4-5 dates (pitted)
1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
2-3 Tbs water or almond milk (or more if desired)
extra 1/2 cup shredded coconut for decoration
Place almonds, dates, and carob powder into a food processor and blend until they form a thick paste. Add water or almond milk if the batter is too thick. Remove mixture from food processor and place into a medium size bowl. Stir in 1 cup shredded coconut and blend until well incorporated. You can add more water or milk if the mixture is too thick. Refrigerate the dough for about 20-30 minutes. Form small truffles (balls) between your hands. Place 1/2 cup shredded coconut into a small bowl. Roll each truffle in the coconut and set aside.
Doggie Jokerz Truffles (Peanut Butter, Peanuts and Carob)
1 cup roasted or boiled peanuts (no salt or oil added)
1 Tbs carob powder
4-5 dates (pitted)
2 Tbs peanut butter
1-2 Tbs water if desired
extra 1/3 cup finely shredded peanuts for decoration
Place peanuts, dates, peanut butter and carob powder into a food processor and blend until they form a thick paste. Add water or almond milk if the batter is too thick. Remove mixture from food processor and place into a medium size bowl. Refrigerate the dough for about 20-30 minutes. Form small truffles (balls) between your hands. Place 1/3 cup finely chopped peanuts into a small bowl. Roll each truffle in the chopped peanuts and set aside.
See you dog wag his tail and smack his lips 🙂

Love Go Max Go and I have faith that someday they’ll tackle Twix for me. Oh, or Cadbury creme eggs.
I have 7 beautiful rescue 4 legged children who will be eating these delicious treats very soon!
So many I would wish they would veganize! Twix, Kit-Kat, and Rollos!!
Can’t wait to make these for my perfect Puggle friend Louie!!!
Remember Whatchamacalits? I want a vegan version of that!
And my tweet!
I like Buccaneer because it’s fun to say and fun to eat.
Jokerz is my favorite. And I would love to see vegan malted milk balls!
Twix! And something involving chocolate and cherry/raspberry.
Cadbury cream eggs!
You CAN buy a vegan version! http://www.ethical-treats.co.uk/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=155
They are gorgeous!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Butterfinger was my holy grail, but now that that’s taken care of, put me down for another vote for Rollos!
I gotta go with a vegan Twix! Easily my favorite candy bar, next to a Milky Way, which is why I love those Twilight bars so much :O
love any candy bar that i can eat!!!
I would love to see twix and kit kats veganized!
Followed on Ig!
I would definitely like to see Kit Kats veganised!!
I miss those delicious crispy treats, big time!!
Have a great day
I LOVE me a joker because it is the perfect balance of nuts and caramel, all wrapped up in the yumminess of chocolate 🙂
Hmmm I think if someone could make something that tastes like a Wispa, I would fall in love with it! I know there are other bubbly chocolates around but even in the dairy chocolate world, nothing tastes quite like a Wispa!
I’ve posted on facebook but it won’t let me copy the link? I’ve tagged you guys in it though!
I love Cleo’s Peanut Butter Cups and I would love to see Almond Joy dark chocolate bars veganized.
My tweet – https://twitter.com/madhatterbakes/status/449997532199153664
I follow Go Max Go Foods on Twitter as @macdrap50
Milk ways or three musketeers :))
I adore all Go Max Go candy bars, and I would LOVE a vegan version of York Peppermint Patties and Twix!
Cookies and cream candy bar. My favorite go max go is mahalo!
whatchamacallit needs to be veganized
My absolute favourite as a kid were Hanuta, a chocolate and hazelnutbar by Ferrero. Would be awsome to have a vegan version of those. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanuta.
I’d love to see you veganize twix!!!
I would like to see a vegan 5th Avenue. I love the crunchy/soft texture and the peanut buttery taste. I have not had the Thumbs Up yet, but I wonder if the texture is more like a Butterfinger as opposed to a 5th Avenue?
Yum!! Love Go Max Go bars-any and all!
Twix, Kit Kat, M&M’s plain and peanut, and Caramello. These are the ideas from the kids and husband! It’s hard to pick a favorite from the Go Max Go collection, so I pick all of them.
My favourite is the Jokerz bar!
I would love to have a vegan heath bar
I love them all, but Jokerz is my favorite!
My favorite go max go candy bar is the thumbs up! Amazing! Would love to see a vegan watchamacallit!
The thumbs up bar is the absolute best!
and shared on facebook
Would love to see a veganized version of cookies and cream! My favorite go max go is the Buccaneer, though all are delicious!
Twix and Hershey’s Cookies & Cream. I miss the cookie crunch and vegan white chocolate is hard to come by.
Twitter status for Sunday night!
I also just started following you on Instagram! My username is chronofholo (like my Twitter!). Thanks. : )
Ooops, my Instagram handle is organelle. Sorry! : )
All your candy bars rock and your love for animals is awesome! Rock on,Go Max Go 4 ever!!!
What a great recipe!! Thank you for sharing.
I love the Jokerz and it will be fun to have a vegan M&M!
I can see my dog loving this. Can’t wait to try to make these delicious treats!
I love kit Kat and twix, so the go max go jokerz is a great candy bar!
I’ve never tried any of these candy bars before unfortunately. Canada is pretty limited, especially in my little city. I’m going on vacation for the first time overseas EVER at the end of April, and I would love to take these with me to share on the plane!! <3
Posted in wrong thread, LOL! Want the candy barsss!
puppies and candy bars…….my two favorite things!! oh, my little puppy will be excited we have a new treat recipe to try!!
Looks yummy, any vegan chocolate treat done right is what I am all about.
I LOVE the Jokerz bar!!
I love Cleo’s. I would most like to see vegan malteasers!
I live in Oklahoma and it is SO difficult to find vegan ANYTHING around here. Let alone vegan treats! </3
I would love to see a veganized BabyRuth bar!
I am going to have to try these I think my fur baby will love them 🙂
i would like to see cadbury creme eggs veganized. I love them, can’t get enough cadbury eggs. Those doggy truffles look good, I bet my chihuahua Bambi would love them.
my favorite candy bars that i’d love to see veganized would be Rolo’s and 100,000 bars!
I want to see vegan Cadbury creme eggs. I might try to make them myself!
Thumbs up for Thumbs Up! love it
Followed on both accounts Twitter and Instagram (yegtina)
Twilight is my favorite!
Oooh move over big rubber bouncy ball! We’ve got raw vegan balls, woof! And my vote for a veganized bar would be a caramilk, though I’m content with the current lineup! That said, my favorite is the Cleo bar 🙂
M&Ms would be amazing, especially the peanut filled ones.
Treats my dog and I can share? Brilliant!
Kit-kats w/ a “milk-like” chocolate!
We have a house full of Vegans who love your candy bars…. just stocked up for our Easter egg hunt with our kids…..
I’ve never had a Go Max bar, so I’m not sure which one would be my fav. I would LOVE to see Mini Eggs veganized. I crave them every Easter! 🙁
Twix was the first to come to mind..but I’d have to say, something with an espresso twist, would certainly be nice! & if i had to pick just one..I’d have to say Jokerz would be my personal #1.. =)
vegan candy is great!
Just found out about you! Can’t wait to do some tasting 🙂 YAY
I love Go Max Go and would be SOOOOO happy to win!!!! 🙂 🙂
I would LOVE to see Whatchamacallit bars or Caramellos veganized! The caramel might be tough…but they would be delicious!
I was so happy when I discovered these a year ago !!!! Thanks for making vegan treats 😉
I don’t have a favourite Go Max Go candy bar because this is my first introduction to the brand!
I would love a veganized Kit Kat or Twix. 🙂
Mutt is going to love these!! He has grain allergies and I have concocted a treat for him, but these are probably tastier!! lol I love anything with dark chocolate! Anything added to it is just a bonus! Yum
I will make these for my two adorable pooches:)
Would love Vegan kit kats! Got any treats for cats?
Yum yum yum!
The Go Max Go version of a Butterfinger is incredible! I love them all, but Thumbs up and Joker are the best!
Oh my anything with caramel but i will take a veg milky way please
I have only had the opportunity to enjoy Go Max Go candy bars on a few special occasions. They are the best tasting candy bars that I have eaten! Thanks for making them!
Just learned about this and am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!
I want a vegan 3 muskiteers those were my favorite.
I will be making these truffles for my next bring your dog event at my holistic vet clinic. I am sure my pig will love them too!
Please make Maltesers vegan!!!! A Twix would be nice too!!!! PLEASE MAKE THEM!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Love, Love, Love them <3
@sparklypattie on Twitter. Malttesers and Rolo’s!!!! I would buy ALL of them and would probably get very fat!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
LOVE your candy bars!! All of them are amazing!!
Followed you on Twitter a while ago, you follow back, follow on Instagram and FB! Sorry I was a bit confused by how your comp worked. #opps! #blonde!
🙂 🙂 🙂
Coffee Crisp! For the love of god, please veganize a Coffee Crisp, and mail all your testers to me. As for current favourites, definitely Twilight, the bar not the movie 😛
I’ve only been able to find Go Max Go Bars at one place and they have now closed, but I was able to have the chance to try the vegan version of my favorite candy bar Muskateers. I would love to have a vegan version of Take 5
A vegan Twix bar would be great!
My favorite Go Max Go candy bar would have to be their Twilight bar. Best candy bar I’ve EVER had. I kept trying to get some from Whole Foods at Christmas time but they kept saying they had run out, so I guess I’m not the only one who loves them. 😛
Please, I need to find goog vegan candy
GoMaxGoFoods knows how to do the Vegan thing right. All the candy bars are Awesome!
