Is chocolate vegan?

This is a question I get a lot! Most dark chocolate, 70% dark or higher, are vegan because they contain no milk ingredients. So, they are what I call “accidentally vegan” – i.e. they’re vegan, but are not promoted as vegan.

Many standard chocolate chips, on the other hand, contain milk in their ingredient list. So, it’s important to check the ingredients on the package when looking for chocolate chips. 

For this reason, I like to buy vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips. My favourite brand is by Enjoy Life. They also have chocolate chunks, which you could use in this recipe as a swap instead of chopping up a chocolate bar into chunks.

Peta has an article for vegan chocolate chip brands that could be helpful for your next grocery haul.
