Chocolate and veganism go hand-in-hand—high-quality dark chocolate is dairy-free, often with just two ingredients (cocoa beans and sugar) and cocoa powder is likewise vegan-friendly. Chocolate's strong flavor makes it easy to disguise any other ingredient swaps, like using non-dairy milk or butter and egg replacer, without anyone noticing. Plus, dark chocolate (in moderation) has some well-studied health benefits.

When buying chocolate on a vegan diet, read the packaging carefully. Many chocolate chips contain dairy, but vegan brands are widely available. Likewise, double-check that your other ingredients are free of dairy, eggs, honey, and gelatin before baking.

No matter what kind of chocolately sweet treat you're in the mood for, these recipes are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
