Vegan Chocolate for Christmas!

During the Christmas season, it's hard to resist the temptation of chocolate. If you're looking for some healthier chocolate to indulge in, I have 3 vegan brands to recommend!

The first brand is Honey Acres who sells the most scrumptious Dark Chocolate Honey Truffles. They are the (healthier) equivalent to the New York Peppermint Patty. With only 3 ingredients: honey, peppermint oil and unsweetened chocolate, it's hard to believe how sweet and satisfying these truffles are. (I'm sure the honey is a big factor in their sweetness!) I must confess, whenever I go to my local health food store, I stock up on these mints because they disappear fast! 

The next vegan brand is Hu, with the motto: "Get back to human!" I like how the company was co-founded by two siblings who were inspired by food's ability to heal, rather than hinder.

I cannot rave enough over this particular chocolate bar, "Cashew Butter + Pure Vanilla Bean," as it's the most delicious chocolate bar I have ever tasted since my vegan transition. The first time I tried a piece, I instantly thought of Christmas because it tasted very similar to the chocolate candies I would get from my stocking every year. The cashew butter makes it very thick, and creamy enough to melt in your mouth. The coconut sugar and vanilla bean definitely add to the overall sweetness, and are perfect sugar-substitutes.

I was so happy to find the perfect vegan chocolate bar to indulge in during the Christmas season. I didn't hesitate to stock up on these bars, not only because I'm addicted to them, but also since they're popular among the health food stores and tend to run out quickly!

My last chocolate recommendation is a dark chocolate mint by the brand, Righteously Raw

With 82% cacao, I was surprised to find the divine mint sweet enough for me to get addicted to. The following certified-organic ingredients are cacao butter, cacao powder, raw agave, raw coconut oil, vanilla bean power and essential peppermint oil. (In case anyone doesn't know, cacao butter is not dairy since the butter is referring to the fatty portion of the cacao bean!)

I would compare this mint to Andes Mints (that are often handed out at restaurants and have green sidings) since they're both thin and taste very similar in containing the same ingredient: peppermint oil!

So those are the 3 vegan brands whose chocolate I am currently obsessed with! I hope this helps in your hunt for some healthier chocolate options...

Vegan or not, have fun indulging in chocolate this Christmas season!
