When you’re eating a meat- and dairy-free diet (by choice or for health reasons), vegan desserts are kind of hard to come by.

And chocolate desserts, in particular, are so often filled with dairy products they’re usually off the table.

Luckily, these vegan chocolate recipes are here to satisfy those cravings without a drop of milk or a single egg.

So whether you’re looking for a chocolatey breakfast, a sweet snack, or a luscious dessert, this list has it all.

25 Best Vegan Chocolate Recipes That Will Make You Drool

1. Best Vegan Chocolate Cake

Whether you’re vegan or not, this chocolate cake is seriously delicious. 

Moist chocolate cake always hits the spot when you’re celebrating something special (or just working through a chocolate craving!).

And this easy, one-bowl vegan cake will leave you more than satisfied. 

It’s so rich and delicious, nobody will even know there isn’t any dairy in it. So you can make this for any and all occasions. 

2. 5-Ingredient Vegan Dark Chocolate Bars

You can’t beat a luxurious chocolate bar when you’re in the mood for a sweet snack. And this one is rich, dreamy, and pure chocolate scrumptiousness. 

Believe it or not, you can make dark chocolate bars, from scratch, with just five ingredients.

I hate to say it, but nobody will believe these are homemade.

Coconut oil and cacao butter give the chocolate its incredible silkiness. Then there’s cacao and cocoa powders for the deep flavor.

This recipe also has a natural sweetener and some extras to make it even more decadent and flavorful.

Seriously, it’s the kind of vegan recipe you have to try to believe!

3. Vegan Chocolate Cookies

Double chocolate cookies are a wonderful treat everybody loves. But these vegan cookies are extra special. 

Soft on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside, they’re truly irresistible.

Vegan chocolate chips add extra flavor and that ooey-gooey finish we all know and love.

Make these for any party or celebration, and your guests will go nuts. 

4. Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts

Donuts are yummy any time of day, for any reason. Have them for breakfast, a mid-morning snack, or even as a birthday celebration!

And while you can easily buy a box from Dunkin’, these chocolatey homemade vegan donuts are too good to miss.

They’re soft, moist, and super fluffy. The glaze on these little treats is light with a layer of crispness that’s so good when it’s done right. 

These would be a fantastic addition to any holiday or a special surprise for somebody’s birthday breakfast. 

5. Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

Creamy vegan chocolate ice cream is the stuff of dessert dreams. 

Coconut cream is responsible for the beautiful silky-smooth texture. Plus, it adds a subtle sweet nuttiness you’ll love.

You’ll use unsweetened cocoa powder and vegan dark chocolate, so you know it’s intensely flavorful and rich.

I always blend this to ensure it’s as smooth as possible. But that’s optional.

6. Vegan Chocolate Pudding Parfait

Try these light and scrummy vegan parfaits if you need a simple yet impressive dessert for your next dinner party.

Fruity and chocolatey, everyone will love the blend of fresh fruits and creamy chocolate pudding.

Add some dairy-free whipped cream, and you’re all set!

7. Vegan Parfait

Of course, some people prefer a double dose of chocolate. And that’s where this vegan chocolate parfait comes in.

It’s like a grown-up “dirt cup,” and I’m SO here for it. 

Not only is this dessert dairy-free, but it has a fun adult twist in the form of Kahlua or coffee liqueur. 

You’ll layer Kahlua chocolate ganache, whipped vegan cream, and crushed Oreo cookies in a glass and top it off with chocolate shavings.

It’s easy but looks like you spent hours in the kitchen.

8. Vegan Chocolate Muffins 

Vegan chocolate muffins are so soft and delicious, you’ll sell out at the next bake sale in record time. 

Dairy-free chocolate chips and chunks fill these vegan muffins to the brim with incredible chocolate flavor. 

If you’re looking for an excuse to each chocolate for breakfast, you just found it!

9. 2-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Truffles

Dark chocolate truffles are super elegant and embarrassingly easy to whip up at home – whether they’re vegan or not.

They only require two ingredients: chocolate and cream (coconut milk if you’re vegan).

All you have to do is heat the cream/coconut milk until it’s just about to boil, then pour it over a bowl of chocolate chips or chunks.

Leave it for a couple of minutes, then slowly mix until the chocolate’s melted and it’s nice and smooth.

It’s basically chocolate ganache; only, to make truffles, you want a higher ratio of chocolate to cream. That way, it’ll set firm.

10. Vegan Chocolate Smoothie

Start your day with one of these vegan chocolate smoothies, and your sugar cravings will be quashed until dinner.

Packed with natural ingredients like bananas and chia seeds, you’ll use cocoa powder for flavor and peanut butter for a nice salty contrast. 

To cut down on fat, try using peanut butter powder. It’s got the same great taste, but up to 85% less fat!

11. Vegan Hot Chocolate

When you’re in the mood for a cozy beverage to cuddle up with, this vegan hot chocolate will hit the spot every time. 

It’s creamy and luscious, even without the dairy. And it’ll warm your heart and soul with its comforting flavor and dreamy texture. 

Add some vegan marshmallows or non-dairy whipped cream, and it’s about as indulgent as a drink can get. 

12. Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is delicate and luxurious. And it’s so insanely creamy, you’d never guess it could be just as decadent without the dairy.

But somehow, this recipe knocks it out of the park.

Be warned: make this once, and it’ll be on regular rotation. I’m talking Sunday dinners, holiday meals, and more.

Seriously, it’s one your family will beg you for again and again!

13. Vegan Lava Cakes

Lava cakes are the epitome of decadent desserts. 

Rich, moist cake baked to perfection with a warm and velvety “lava” center? I mean, what could be better than that?

There’s nothing more satisfying than slipping your fork into the tender cake only to find melted chocolate goodness oozing out.

Top these cakes with vegan ice cream for a dessert that’s unforgettable. 

14. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes (GF) 

At this point, I’m thinking we should just make chocolate a breakfast staple. We’re all grown-ups, after all!

Not that I need an excuse to devour these fluffy vegan pancakes with melty chocolate chips.

They’re so easy to make, you could even whip them up on a busy weekday.

That said, they’re also fantastic on holiday mornings when you have family staying over.

15. Vegan Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Chocolate-covered pretzels are a salty-sweet treat everybody loves.

And with a bit of vegan chocolate, they’re something everyone can actually enjoy too.

Trust me, these are so tasty, you’ll have to resist eating the whole batch. 

16. Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

When you don’t want to make a whole cake, try these easy vegan chocolate cupcakes instead.

They’re just as tasty and ideal for birthdays, holidays, game days, and more.

They’re so moist, rich, and decadent, you’d never know they’re dairy-free. Even the frosting is incredible!

I promise, these vegan cupcakes are guaranteed crowd-pleasers!

17. Vegan Chocolate Fudge

Make this effortless vegan chocolate fudge once, and you’ll be hooked.

Fudge is the kind of thing you buy in specialty stores or get for Christmas. But it’s surprisingly easy to make at home.

And yes, that includes this vegan recipe. So give it a whirl and see for yourself!

18. Best Fudgy Vegan Brownies

Brownies are the ultimate chocolate dessert. I don’t know anyone who would turn down a piece of fudgy, chocolatey goodness.

And this recipe makes the most fudgy and most moist brownies ever. Seriously, they’re unbelievable.

Say goodbye to store-bought brownie mix and hello to homemade!

Whether you’re an edge-piece lover or a middle-piece fanatic, you’ll go crazy for these vegan brownies.  

19. No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecakes

As a cheesecake purist, I almost always make vanilla. But that doesn’t mean other flavors, like chocolate, are off the table.

And not only are these vegan cheesecakes super tasty, they’re also no-bake, making them totally fuss-free.

This is a fantastic recipe for parties, and they look super cute in individual portions with a few fresh berries on top.

20. Vegan Snickers Bars

If candy bars are your guilty pleasure, get ready for a devilishly sinful experience.

You only need six ingredients for this recipe and guess what? They’re all healthy!

Dates create a sticky, gooey caramel base and are also used for the homemade vegan nougat. 

Top these bars with crunchy peanuts and cover them with dreamy chocolate. Yum!

21. Vegan Chocolate Crepes

Vegan chocolate crepes are a dessert or snack worth every minute and calorie. 

Super thin chocolate pancakes take a little time to perfect, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll make them all the time.

And with bananas rolled inside, they’re to die for!

22. Vegan Chocolate Sweet Potato Milkshake

Yes, you read that right: chocolate and sweet potato in a milkshake. Hear me out!

Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, right? And they actually add so much unique texture and surprisingly wonderful flavor.

They’re there to make these vegan milkshakes creamy with tons of nutrients. And when you add the chocolate, you’ll hardly taste them.

23. Chocolate Vegan Mug Cake

Whenever you need a quick fix, mug cakes are always there for the win. 

And these single-serving vegan chocolate mug cakes are a terrific way to satisfy your cravings without the mess or hassle.

They’re fudgy, chocolatey, and oh-so-delicious. 

Throw these in the microwave whenever the mood strikes, and you’re in for a treat!

24. Vegan Chocolate Nougat Bars

Bookmark this recipe for later, because I promise it’s one you’ll come back to again and again.

The crust is made with almond flour and dates for sweetness, while the middle layer is a nutty caramel of dates and nut butter. 

Dark chocolate is the best way to finish these incredible homemade candy bars. One bite, and you’ll swoon.

25. Vegan Chocolate Tart 

This vegan chocolate tart is a beautiful, show-stopping dessert for any occasion.

Walnuts and pecans make up the crunchy crust. Meanwhile, the filling is made with tons of dark chocolate, so it’s creamy, luscious, and beyond satisfying. 

Add all sorts of fresh fruit on top for a presentation that looks as good as it tastes!
