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

29

Updated for 2015! Seven years into our annual Dairy-Free and Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunny Round-up, and the list just keeps on growing. Our round-up includes over fifteen chocolatiers in North America (all in the U.S., several 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!

Premium Chocolatier “Milk” Chocolate Easter Bunnies

I know, I shouldn’t play favorites, but this company has won my taste buds over. They are offering a 6-inch tall “milk” chocolate Easter Bunny (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 manufacaturing facility is dedicated tree nut-, peanut-, and milk-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!  Divvies has also added Easter “Chocolate Bag Kits” to their sweets line-up. 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.”

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 is also offering little Easter “totes” filled with vegan chocolates or peanut butter bites (yes, wrapped in chocolate) and Easter baskets with chocolate bunnies in tow. Also, in recent years they have released many new vegan chocolate bite flavors to fill baskets, so be sure to cruise the vegan section of their website.

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.

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 Foil Wrapped 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!  Their dainty, foil wrapped, 65% dark chocolate bunnies and eggs are certainly enticing. They also offer “Easter Buddies” (pictured below) for an extra cuddly gift. Be sure to select the “vegan” options specifically as they also offer milk chocolate products in their Easter line-up that are not dairy-free.

Grocer’s Daughter Dark Chocolate Easter Chocolate Bunnies

Mimi goes well beyond your ordinary chocolatier, creating all sorts of chocolate delights. Though she doesn’t run an all vegan chocolate shop, she always includes some vegan options in each of her product lines, and Easter is not forgotten. The dark chocolate bunny is made without milk as are the dark chocolate carrots, bunny lollies, and the vegan dark egg that is filled with her delicious apricot ganache (I have tried it – it is good!). Please note that the Grocer’s Daughter website isn’t always updated. At last check, they weren’t showing the Easter bunny, but they are more proficient with phone orders.

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.

No Whey Chocolate Bunnies

I haven’t heard very much buzz about this new-ish chocolatier, which is surprising, especially when you consider that they offer “light” vegan chocolate (think milk chocolate sans milk), white vegan chocolate, and soy-free dark chocolate. Their latest dairy-free chocolate Easter bunny offering involves creamy vegan white chocolate and freeze-dried fruit!

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 originallly made this list because of their dairy-free dark chocolate bunny, but didn’t have the heart to remove them, even though the bunny doesn’t appear to be in the line-up any longer. That’s because they still offer a delicious selection of Easter-wrapped boxes and bags of brittle, toffee, and more dairy-free chocolate decadence (including a vegan riff on Butterfingers!).

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.

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. 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).
