Vegan Chocolate Goodness!

Posted on: February 2nd, 2011 by admin 1 Comment

I had a request to post up some chocolately vegan suggestions and recipes, and I think this is an area that trips up most people. A lot of chocolate chips, processed cookies, and chocolate candies have milk-fat in them. These recipes aren’t just for vegans though, they are also great for lactose-intolerant people (which are actually quite a large part of population).

Vegan chocolate ingredients:

Sunspire Chocolate Chips are vegan and can be found at most health food stores or you can order them online at a number of vegan stores.

If you can’t get a hold of sunspire, you may be able to find some dark chocolate chips that have no milk-fat in them, so just read through those ingredients. You can also break up a whole chocolate bar and use the chunks instead of chocolate chips. Just put it in a zip-lock bag and smash it up. I like ALDI brand 55%-85% Moser Roth chocolate bars, they are vegan imported chocolates! Yum!

Cocoa powder is already vegan, as long as its not a hot chocolate mix with dried milk.

Ah!laska chocolate syrup is also vegan:

Vegweb.com is a great, free vegan resource if you are trying to find a vegan recipe for your favorite desserts. Here are a few that look super delcious and were well reviewed on the site! I’ve tried out and personally love the Chewy Gooey Brownies!

Classic Chocolate Chip Recipe
Easy Vegan Chocolate Cake
Chewy Gooey Brownies (My Fave!)

I also had a request to post up my Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe. Its very easy and I think it tastes better than the store bought hot chocolate mixes.

1 TB Dutched Processed Baking Cocoa (or regular works fine too)
1 1/2 TB Organic Sugar
1 1/2 cups soy milk (or whatever non dairy milk you enjoy drinking)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Get a small saucepan. Heat the milk on medium, but don’t let it boil or it will get a weird skin on top. Whisk in the sugar and hot cocoa. Then, whisk in the rest of the ingredients. Simmer till is warmed through, but not boiling. Serve¬†immediately!
