To many, before 2020, “date night in” often just meant board games or cards, maybe a movie, possibly in your pajamas. Possibly some popcorn. Date night in was nice, but it wasn’t really fancy, it was more just about spending time together. These days, we may find ourselves spending a lot of time together, so date night in NEEDS to be special. It needs to be upped a level or two from the old days.
That’s why we’re bringing you some of our absolute favorite vegan desserts we love to have on date nights together here in our little home. And, while these are all pretty easy to make, they look like you spent hours making them for your perfect date night.

Vegan Dessert Date Night Ideas
So, spend some time together in front of the fire without your phones. Maybe do a little paint night with some wine. Board games are indeed always a great option, but do them with dessert!
And remember, date night definitely doesn’t have to mean two people. Self-care is very important during these times. And self-care always tastes better with vegan dessert!
Classic Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
These vegan chocolate chip cookies are the perfect classic dessert if you’re going to be cozying up by a fire together. Get a plate to share with each other as you gaze into the fire and each other’s eyes. (Too corny? Oh well.)
Vegan Whipped Cream
Need I say more? This vegan whipped cream is the perfect sexy dessert to make together and a classic with strawberries or served atop any of these glorious vegan desserts.
Stovetop Cinnamon Apples
These stovetop cinnamon apples are great served on their own if you’re looking for something a little lighter and healthier, or try them over puff pastry with vegan vanilla ice cream and caramel!
Vegan Cannoli Cones
Holy moley! Vegan cannoli! These vegan cannoli cones are the perfect twist on a classic fav. They’re also great served as a dip. If you’re a cannoli fan, you’ll love this one!
Vegan White Chocolate Fudge
The perfect finger-licking white chocolate fudge made VEGAN and a little bit healthier. These little squares are decadent AF, so proceed with caution. This vegan fudge is perfect topped with crushed pretzels, strawberries, or cherry pie filling.
Vegan Champagne Cheesecake
These champagne-infused vegan cheesecakes are an adult spin on the ideal decadent dessert. You’ll enjoy each creamy forkful as you enjoy each other’s company, perhaps with the remainder of the champagne!
Vegan Peppermint Patties
These homemade vegan peppermint patties are infused with dairy-free Baileys for another adult take on a classic candy. Get your chocolate fix and perfectly kissable breath together! 😉
Tahini Brownie Batter Dip
This vegan brownie batter dip with tahini is a healthy and easy (but also super decadent) dip. Perfect on its own or paired with the aforementioned cannoli dip and whipped cream for a truly tasty trio!
