I make these raw brownies all the time:
triumphwellness.com/healthy-sugar-fr
ee
-cookies/

The brownies are sugar free, gluten free, non-dairy, raw (though I do sometimes use roasted mixed nuts instead of just walnuts), they're even kosher for Passover... and they're *still* so good that everyone asks for the recipe! :-)

The oatmeal cookies on that page are good, too, though I tend to use tahini instead of peanut butter

Here's another brownie recipe from the same site (I haven't tried this one, though):
triumphwellness.com/pizza-pizza/
(And yes, it mentions pizza at the top, but scroll down!)

It's really easy to make a vegan chocolate cake--search for eggless chocolate cake, and you'll get a lot of hits. It's another that tends to get a lot of compliments, and it's as easy as opening a cake mix.

I've also heard of making chocolate mousse with avocado and cocoa. One of my daughters said she tried it at a friend's house. My other daughter and I said it sounded great. First daughter laughed and said you could tell we'd already been exposed to vegan cooking, or we would have said it sounded gross....

In the same vein, I love frozen banana blended with cocoa and whatever else I have lying around as a liquid (soy milk, coconut milk, maybe some juice).... Feels decadent, satisfying, and... healthy. Hmm. Think that's what I'm having for breakfast! :-)

Of course, these are all a little more complicated than just buying dark chocolate! LOL!

Trader Joe's makes a dark chocolate bar that is certified as vegan. Look for the one in the bright green box.

Most dark chocolate is vegan. The higher the cocoa percentage, the less likely there will be dairy in it!

Well I'm looking at going back to mostly if not totally Vegan. But I have a questions for those of you out there who are Vegan... and have a sweet tooth. Specifically for chocolate??

How the heck do you say no? Is there a such thing as an animal product free chocolate? I'm sure there is and I will do some research on this but I am always open to suggestions!

Thanks!
