You may already have a good idea of how to go vegan for your main meals, but what about dessert? And more importantly, what about vegan chocolate recipes? The good news is satisfying your sweet tooth may be simpler than you thought, as lot of chocolate is actually vegan. As long as ingredients derived from milk don’t pop up in the ingredients list, you’re in the clear. (And this isn’t limited to milk. Be on the lookout for ingredients such as whey, casein, or milk fat.) This means it’s even easier to whip up a delicious vegan chocolate recipe that will make everyone’s mouths water (even those milk guzzling, egg eating friends of yours.)
Cakes, cookies, and even chocolate mousse are just as delicious without the animal products. In fact, it might be fun to serve these up to friends and family without warning them beforehand that the treats are vegan. Odds are they won’t be able to taste the difference. Even if you aren’t a vegan, these rich and decadent desserts will still be worth your time and calories. So round up your baking tools, set the kitchen timer, and get ready for some of the tastiest vegan chocolate recipes the Internet has to offer.
1Vegan Chocolate Brownies
Ooey, gooey, and deemed the best fudgy vegan brownies, no one will know that For Reals Life’s concoctions are free from animal products.
2Vegan Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse
Is anything more decadent than chocolate mousse? Adapted from molecular gastronomist Hervé This, Melissa Clark’s vegan mousse calls for only one ingredient. Serve it up in a pretty little glass to impress literally anyone.

It’s hard to imagine a cozy winter evening without hot chocolate, and Greatist’s easy stovetop hot chocolate recipe is sure to hit the spot. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and you’re all set.

Yes, there’s even a vegan version of Thin Mints. Easy to make at home, these crispy mint chocolate cookies from BabyCakes Covers the Classics are guaranteed to disappear quickly.

6Vegan Chocolate Cake
Another tasty treat from Fo Reals Life, this vegan chocolate cake was created on accident. And we’re so glad it was!
