Step-by-step photos of how to make vegan chocolate
  • Add the cocoa butter to a heat-safe bowl (photo 1). Set aside.
  • Pour a couple of inches of water (about 5 cm) into a saucepan and bring to a boil (photo 2). Then place the bowl on top to create a double boiler (photo 3)
  • Let the cacao butter melt gently over medium heat (photo 4).
  • Once it’s melted, remove from the heat, add all the remaining ingredients (photo 5), and stir until well combined (photo 6).
  • Carefully pour the vegan chocolate mixture into a silicone chocolate mold (I used 2 of them) (photo 7).
  • Transfer to the fridge or freezer and allow the chocolate to set.
  • Enjoy it straight from the fridge or at room temperature (photo 8).

Vegan chocolate ingredients and tips

  • Cocoa butter.
  • Maple syrup: to make this vegan chocolate you can use any other type of syrup instead. Agave syrup is the best alternative though.
  • Vanilla extract: I always use homemade vanilla extract, as it’s more affordable and extremely easy to make, but the store-bought one is also a good choice.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder: you could probably make your vegan chocolate using carob powder, but I’ve never tried it myself. Keep in mind that carob powder is sweeter than cocoa powder, so you may need to add less sugar.

Is dark chocolate vegan?

This is actually is a really common question; is dark chocolate vegan? Generally speaking, most dark chocolate containing more than 70% of cocoa is usually vegan.

However, some dark chocolate may contain dairy, so the best way of making sure it doesn’t is by checking the ingredients (or learning how to make vegan chocolate yourself!).
