Vegan Chocolate Hearts

Going dairy-free doesn’t mean you have to give up chocolate! And making homemade vegan chocolate is much easier than you think. All you need is a handful of simple ingredients and a few spare minutes.

While we’ve gone for heart-shaped moulds, you can use this chocolate to make other holiday treats for Easter, Christmas, and Halloween.

10 small hearts


  • 1/2 cup (60g) cocoa butter melted (I use 'Absolute Organic Buttons')

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt

  1. Melt cocoa butter in a glass bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water.
  2. Once melted, remove from the heat and whisk in the brown rice syrup.
  3. Add the cacao or cocoa powder, vanilla extract and pink of salt and whisk by hand until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Pour chocolate into silicone heart moulds, allow to set for one hour in the fridge. Add any extra toppings at this stage. See below.
  5. Optional: Add toppings like freeze-dried fruit, nuts, seeds, or dried rose petals for a special occasion.
  6. Once set, turn the silicon mould upside down and gently press each heart out.
