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!
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!
