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

72

Updated for 2020! We’re now 12 years into our annual Dairy-Free and Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunny Round-up! This list might look a little shorter this year, because not all vegan chocolatiers have their Easter collections out yet. I know some of you want to shop early (before they run out!), so we’re updating the list now, and will continue adding to it as new options come out. Our round-up now includes TWENTY chocolatiers in North America (most in the U.S., but 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! But you might want to hop on over to place your order now. I’m guessing that many of these chocolatiers will sell out well before the holiday arrives.

The Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunny and More Round-Up - vegan with gluten-free and allergy-friendly options - including creme-filled eggs and white chocolate treats!

The BIG Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunny & More Round-Up

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 dietary concern. Now onto the vegan and dairy-free chocolate bunnies and eggs!

Amanda’s Own Easter and Passover Chocolates

The chocolate bunny population is exploding at Amanda’s Own this year! They now have baby bunnies, bashful bunnies, momma bunnies, long-eared bunnies, bunny friends, and more. They also have chocolate eggs and other Easter and springtime shapes. 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.

Vegan, Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Bunny or Bunnies

No Whey! White & “Milk” Chocolate Easter Bunnies

This company has won my taste buds over. They offer “milk” chocolate, white chocolate, and semi-sweet Easter Bunnies in addition to Easter egg truffles, creme eggs, and an assortment of other fun white, milkless, and dark chocolate treats. Every year, you can expect the head chocolatier, Yochy, will make something new. And their manufacturing facility is top allergen-free, which means they are dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free and now soy-free!

Ethereal Confections Chocolate Bunnies & Bark

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, dairy-free filled Easter eggs, jelly bean bark, bunny bark, and chocolate nests.

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!  The 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 “melk” chocolate eggs for a back-up, which you can buy by the tub should you have a little army to please.

Gnosis Chocolate Raw Easter Collection

Will be available starting in early March. Gnosis is going above and beyond this year with a huge assortment of Easter chocolates. They’re launching solid, filled, hollow, and mini items in every dairy-free chocolate medium – mylk, whyte, 70% Dark, and 90% dark (coconut sugar sweetened). The lineup includes over 12 flavors of creme-style eggs and a mylk chocolate cream-filled bunny. Their long-standing Golden egg (salted vanilla crème made with turmeric, maca, burdock, and ginseng root topped with edible gold) will also be available in an “egg” crate of six.

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.

Pure Lovin’ Organic Chocolate Bunnies & Chicks

Will be available starting in early March. Based in Victoria, this vegan, organic and fair trade certified chocolatier ships goodies throughout Canada and now the U.S. This year, they’re bringing back their dark chocolate crispy bunnies, solid chocolate eggs, and peanut butter eggs, and they’re adding a new vegan white chocolate line. Their dairy-free Easter chocolate collection now includes white chocolate carrots and white chocolate crispy bunnies.

Rescue Chocolate “The Good Egg”

Will be available starting in early March. Rescue Chocolate gives you a good excuse to enjoy more chocolate at Easter with their 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. Sadly, they aren’t bringing their chocolate bunnies back this year.

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. And this year, 25% of the peanut butter egg sales will benefit primate sanctuaries – they buy them snacks and toys and have them sent. The chocolate eggs will be available from mid-March through the end of April. It appears that this chocolatier does shun soy, but I haven’t been able to gather any allergen-specific information from them just yet.

Mama Ganache Vegan Easter Bunnies

Unlike many other brands, this chocolatier makes 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! They make vegan dark chocolate versions for most of their bunnies, including the solid chocolate bunnies, bunny and nest, big bunny, and VERY big bunny (shown below).

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.

Just some of the other tasty options include Milk Chocolate Marble Eggs, Chocolate, Nougat Bunnies, and Peanut Butter Bunnies.

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.

    Veda

  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).
