A Recipe for Heart-Shaped Chocolates That You’ll Love!

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about love, right? So celebrate by choosing to make—and eat—delicious milk-free chocolates that don’t hurt cows. ? Cow’s milk isn’t ours to take, and eating chocolate that has dairy milk in it supports an industry that separates mother cows from their babies. ? So be kind to cows and make some special vegan candies. All you need is some vegan chocolate, nondairy milk, a heart-shaped mold, and a couple of your fave mix-ins—it doesn’t get any easier than that! So grab your parents, and let’s get started.


1 12-oz. bag vegan chocolate chunks or chips (try Trader Joe’s or Enjoy Life brand)

1 Tbsp. almond milk

Optional mix-ins: nuts, nut butter, dried fruit, coconut flakes


  • Warm a saucepan over low heat and add the chocolate and almond milk. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Stir any desired mix-ins into the melted chocolate and pour into a heart-shaped mold. If you don’t have a mold, you can use an ice cube tray instead.
  • Place in the freezer and leave until hardened, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the chocolates from the mold and enjoy. You can also wrap them to give as gifts.
