Some of the best Easter treats are also Vegan! For so many years, if you chose to be Vegan it meant “going without” certain things and traditions…. but now… almost everything has a vegan version!!! (not to be confused with “healthy” but most certainly “yummy”)
Some of my favorites:
- Premium chocolate:
offers a wide variety of Easter treats that you can’t live without.
Like the vegan version of Cadbury cream eggs:
Chocolate (and white chocolate- I know vegan white chocolate!) bunny pops !!!
Offers some delicious solid bunnies –
and while there you should also order Chocolate Brownie Cookie Sandwich with Vanilla Filling just because they are awesome!
is always a great place to stalk up on vegan treats:
Vegan “peeps” & Vegan chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies – straight from your childhood!!
- Sjaak’s :
always has some yummy vegan treats.. and special ones for Easter
like the pb crunch egg:
Caramel filled chocolate eggs:
And some solid chocolate eggs
- Rose City Chocolatier
If you like hazelnut truffles (or pb filled easter eggs)… these are the perfect ones for you!

REVIEW: Vegan Samoas
Recipe found on VegNews:
Well, after 5 hours of mixing, baking, waiting, heating, stirring, coating, waiting…. I’d say these cookies are good. Not great, not bad, but good. Would I happily eat and enjoy them – yes! Would I spend the time and effort to make them a second time – definitely not!
