The Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunny (and More!) Round-Up

63

Updated for 2017! Nine years into our annual Dairy-Free and Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunny Round-up, and the list just keeps on growing. Our round-up now includes OVER TWENTY chocolatiers in North America (most in the U.S., several available in Canada). For options elsewhere, see our Australia, Europe & New Zealand Dairy-Free Easter Chocolate Round-Up.

Of course, there is more to Easter than chocolate bunnies … there are chocolate eggs, chicks, and truffles too! Oh, and these days we get to pick between dark, semi-sweet, “milk,” and white chocolate options. Aren’t we spoiled? Now vegans, gluten-free / casein-free dieters, lactose intolerant consumers, and even those with multiple food allergies and gluten-free needs can literally take their pick!

Nonetheless, if your special diet needs are particular, please read this article carefully and inquire with the manufacturer prior to purchasing. I have included notes on what “free-from” needs the chocolatiers cater to (including soy-free and nut-free!), and if we’ve read that they use shared equipment in production. However, you should always double check with the manufacturer before purchasing or consuming any food whenever there is a concern.

Okay, onto the vegan and dairy-free chocolate bunnies, and eggs, and ducks!

No Whey! “Milk” Chocolate Easter Bunnies

I know, I shouldn’t play favorites, but this company has won my taste buds over. They are offering “milk” chocolate Easter Bunnies (with dairy-free white chocolate contrasting ears, so cute!) in addition to Easter egg truffles, creme eggs, and an assortment of other fun “milk” and dark chocolate treats. You may want to hop on over now, as I am guessing they will sell out well before the holiday arrives. Their manufacturing facility is now top allergen-free, which means they are dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free and now soy-free!

Divvies Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunny

The only thing that would make this dairy-free chocolate Easter bunny more perfect is a bag of “safe” Easter Jelly Beans from Divvies! And this year, they’ve added a big 1-pound chocolate bunny to their Easter line-up. But don’t worry, they still have 4-ounce “baby” bunnies. Order early, as this company tends to sell out quickly. From the Divvies site: “All Divvies candy are certified by their manufacturers to be peanut-, tree nut-, milk-, and egg-free.”

Ethereal Confections

This completely dairy-free and gluten-free chocolatier even has a storefront in Woodstock, IL. But, you can buy their delicious confections from anywhere in the U.S. For richness, they use coconut milk and coconut oil, rather than soy, and they offer a delightful dairy-free Easter chocolate range, including solid chocolate bunnies, chicks, and ducks, dairy-free Easter truffles, and some fun jelly bean bark.

Sjaak’s Organic Fair Trade Vegan Dark Chocolate Bunny

Say that ten times fast!  But seriously, beyond the fact that these treats obviously meet all possible eco-friendly and socially aware standards, these dairy-free chocolate Easter bunnies win the cuteness award hands down!  he only downside is that you may not be able to take a bite after looking into his adorable chocolaty eyes. Luckily, there are always the vegan chocolate eggs for a back-up, which you can buy by the tub should you have a little army to please. Sjaak’s also offers little Easter “totes” filled with vegan chocolates and too many other Easter-worthy goodies to sum up here.

Lake Champlain Classic Dark Chocolate Easter Bunny

Since the Mr. Goodtime Bunny is milk chocolate, I suppose we will have to be content with the regal Classic Dark Bunny, which is boasted as vegan and gluten-free.  Well, I guess he is pretty handsome. For those who prefer “cute” to handsome, Lake Champlain also offers dark chocolate placesetting bunnies and organic dark chocolate hopp’n bunnies to share with all Easter guests.

This over-the-top, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan chocolatier just couldn’t settle for those traditional, simple bunnies.  Their intricate chocolate designs include the Cowboy Easter Bunny and the Little Girl Easter Bunny.  Even their “Regular” Bunny Shape holds more detail than your average Easter confection. They also offer giant chocolate egg truffles, Passover chocolates, organic chocolate options, and more.

Amanda’s Own Easter and Passover Chocolates

Created specifically for their child with multiple food allergies, Amanda’s Own claims to be the “home of great tasting chocolate that is completely dairy-free, tree nut-free, peanut-free, egg-free and gluten-free!”  Amanda’s Own is known for kid-friendly chocolate, so it is no surprise that they are offering up quite a sweet little line of Easter chocolates. Personally, I would love a few of those Baby Bunnies for some low-guilt nibbling! New, Amanda’s Own is also offering cute allergy-friendly Bunny Jelly Bean bags and a dairy-free chocolate Easter bunny box.

Mama Ganache Vegan Easter Bunnies

I expect to hear more about this chocolatier in the future, as they are one of the few to make vegan chocolate that is also free of soy lecithin. Yes, you heard me right, their vegan Easter bunnies and eggs are dairy-free AND soy-free. This is another one of those great Fair Trade and Organic certified companies, so don’t hesitate to support them. Oh yes, and the bunnies! This year they’re hand-pouring vegan dark chocolate versions of their big hollow bunnies and solid bunnies.

Lindt Dark Chocolate Easter Bunnies

This is one of those “accidentally vegan” treats. I really don’t think the people at Lindt had non-dairy as their goal, especially since many of their dark chocolate bars do contain milk. However, the Lindt Dark Chocolate Gold Bunnies that we spotted in the U.S. AND Canada, were made without dairy ingredients. Nonetheless, they do contain soy lecithin and artificial flavor (since when is chocolate not good enough on its own?), and may be at risk for cross-contamination with dairy in production.

Rose City Vegan Easter Chocolate Bunnies

Bringing that dairy-free chocolate Easter bunny count up another notch, the sophisticated Rose City Chocolatiers shows us their casual side with an animated chocolate bunny.  Labeled as “Flop-Eared Freddie” it was hard not to be amused after looking at so many emotionless bunnies. We were also entertained by the fact that Rose City not only boasts an assortment of bunnies, but also vegan chocolate Easter ducks, chickens, and roosters! I admit I was lost at the duck, so the chicken and rooster really threw me for a loop. Rose City vegan chocolates are made with imported Belgian dark chocolate.

Lagusta offers dairy-free chocolate Easter bunnies in a couple of very cute shapes, and in some tasty variations. They include a solid 60% bittersweet chocolate bunny, a solid bunny studded with crunchy bits of sweet pistachio praline, and a bittersweet chocolate bunny filled with smooth and intensely peanut buttery (not super sweet!) mousse.

Chocolate Inspirations Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunnies

Chocolate Inspirations offers a full line of vegan confections (from toffees to caramels), but chocolate is still their first love. They celebrate all of the holidays with themed vegan chocolates, including Easter. They originally made this list because of their dairy-free dark chocolate bunny, but I’m not completely sure if he’ll be returning this year. Even if he doesn’t, they usually have Easter-wrapped boxes and bags of brittle, toffee, and more dairy-free chocolate decadence.

Rescue Chocolate Bunnies and “The Good Egg”

Rescue Chocolate gives you a good excuse to enjoy more chocolate at Easter with their Easter Babies, and in prior years the “Make Mine Chocolate” bunnies and vegan chocolate cream-filled eggs (aptly named, “The Good Egg”). 100% of the net profits from your Rescue Chocolate purchase are donated to animal rescue organizations around the country. For the bunnies, they have even partnered with House Rabbit Society to encourage the purchase of chocolate Easter bunnies rather than live ones. Every year, rabbits are purchased as Easter gifts, and huge numbers are then surrendered to animal shelters when the rabbits get older and the excitement of Easter wears off.

This chocolatier is back, and with a big, delicious makeover! In past years, they’ve had no shortage of holiday-friendly shapes, sizes, and flavors. They offered a dairy-free chocolate Easter bunny assortment, foil-wrapped eggs, truffle eggs, bunny pops in butterscotch and white chocolate, and cute Easter packages. We’re not yet sure what they have in store for Easter this year, but they are still whipping up delicious creations.

The Chocolate Girl Easter Gifts

This fun L.A. chocolatier just came onto our radar, and now we’re wondering what we were missing. Everything they make in-house is certified kosher parve (they do sell items from other food producers containing dairy in their store). For Easter they combine shaped chocolates (bunnies, eggs, etc) with their famous big chocolate pretzels.

Camino Dark Chocolate Easter Bunnies

I originally missed the cute vegan-friendly, fair trade, organic dark chocolate bunnies produced by La Siembra in Canada under their Camino brand, as they don’t appear to be on the company’s website (at least they weren’t east to find!). But, they are being sold in stores and online (check Well.ca and Ten Thousand Villages) in Canada. Camino also caters to nut-free and peanut-free with several of their product lines, including these bunnies!

Obsessive Confection Disorder Vegan “Cadbury” Eggs

Though they haven’t ventured into the bunny fields just yet, I would be remiss not to mention the Sweet Dream Eggs from this all-vegan chocolatier. These have sweet “egg” fillings with the sugary whites and yolks reminiscent of Cadbury Cream Eggs, but without dairy. They also offer Rhesus Peanut Butter Eggs. It appears that this chocolatier does shun soy, but I haven’t been able to gather any allergen-specific information from them just yet.

Coracao Organic Chocolate Eggs

Okay, I swear they were there. I was perusing the Coracao Confections site and saw a nice little selection of dairy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free Easter-worthy chocolate eggs. I even grabbed the picture below. And then, they vanished! I’m assuming they’ll be back, and had to mention this great company since they sweeten their chocolate with coconut sugar and have paleo options.

Important Notes

Be Allergen Aware: If your special diet needs are particular, please read this article carefully and inquire with the manufacturer prior to purchasing. I have included notes on what “free-from” needs the chocolatiers cater to (including soy-free and nut-free!), and if we’ve read that they use shared equipment in production (see star note below). However, products, ingredients and processes may change at any time. Always double check with the manufacturer before purchasing or consuming any food whenever there is a food allergy concern.

On Gluten: The above chocolates that are noted as “gluten-free” are made without gluten or wheat, according to their ingredient lists. But, cross-contamination with gluten could be a potential for some of these companies; always double check with the manufacturer on their production processes if cross-contaminaion issues are a concern for you.

  1. Chocolate-Emporium is a major ripoff. I ordered a chocolate assortment for Easter based on this site and what I received has chocolate popcorn with jellybeans. Absolutely nothing like what is pictured. Wish I had chose a different company listed.

  2. Joan Proctor on

    I tried NoWhey for Christmas and paid 2 day upgraded shipping and didn’t get my package for 10 days. Have you had any issues with NoWhey and their shipping? I would love to keep supporting them but am hesitant since they don’t respond to customer service emails.

    • Hi Joan, you are the first complaint I’ve heard on shipping specifically for them, but they do often run a little too lean on staff. Getting a response from them can be difficult. I think they are a good company, just under-staffed beyond the chocolate-makers.

      • Loan,
        Thanks for the feedback. We do aim to get all order shipped as soon as possible. The week or two before holidays are very chaotic with many thousands of order coming in at the same moment and it is difficult. We do recommend ordering as early as possile at holiday time. We apologize for any delays you experienced. No Whey Chocolate

  3. I jumped out of my chair when I saw Ethereal Confections on your list! I live in Woodstock and never knew they were dairy free! So very excited to stop in this week and check them out! Thank you!

  7. Thank you so much for doing this! I knew I could count on your site for a great summary of where to find dairy-free bunnies for my milk-allergic 8 year old daughter’s Easter basket. At this age she is very aware of the fact that she is different from her friends because of it, but things like this make that disappear on a special holiday. I cannot thank you enough

  9. So excited to have stumbled upon this list! My little one is 3 and has been vegan her whole life. She’s just starting to understand that most candies her cousins eat are off limits, I can’t wait to surprise her with a few cute treats. Thanks for all the work!!

  10. I am fortunate to live near the Chocolate Emporium. it is wonderful. Even though my daughter is 28, she loves of box of their chocolates at Christmas and Easter

  11. This is a great list! There are unfortunately a few errors:

    The link for The Chocolate Girl Easter Gifts is the same as Chocolate Emporium.

    The link for Creek House goes to a site that has nothing do with chocolate but physics?

    Everything else looks ok.

  12. Cindy deangelo on

    My son is allergic to dairy and garlic as well as myself and I am also allergic to yellow dye. I am dying to eat some chocolate.

  13. I just wanted to say that although I love the idea of this list, it is really only for Americans. As a Canadian, I’ve spent about an hour so far going through these sites to find most of them don’t ship to me, and when they do, sometimes charge $30 ($40 CAD) shipping, which, once you factor in how much the chocolate costs, makes it pretty impossible to afford anything.

    I know not everyone is on a university budget like me, but it would be nice to have a list of Canadian sites (even if it’s only one or two!) and then if I wanted to, I could branch out into the scary world of scouring shipping information and converting USD to CAD

  14. HI there, If you look that the photos closely, some chocolate looks different from the rest. You can tell the chocolate has been whipped. It’s soft, lightly glossy color is a sign of the highest valued product.

  15. Great research done on dairy free Easter options!! Do you happen to know off hand, Alisa, if any of these companies ship to Canada!? It looks like the only one I can see would be Premium Chocolatier! Thank you!!

    • Off the top of my head, I know Premium Chocolatiers and Amanda’s Own do, but at least a few others do, too. I just can’t recall which ones! Pretty sure Moo Free is in Canada, too (which is listed under the UK ones).
