Are dark chocolate chips vegan? This is a question that I’m asked quite often, and thankfully the answer to that is YES! Cacao (which chocolate is made of) itself is vegan. While milk is sometimes added (so do look at the ingredients), there are many brands of dark chocolate that are vegan and vegan chocolate even vegan milk chocolate is becoming much easier to find 🍫
