I really am a chocolate person. I absolutely love its sweetness and smooth and creamy texture, but I don't enjoy all those artificial additives and preservatives. So I decided to make my own vegan white chocolate, and I'm SO excited about it!
It turned out delicious and it quickly has become one of my all-time favorite snacks. Besides, it is extremely easy to make and is ready with only 5 ingredients in just 15 minutes. This vegan chocolate really is out of this world!

Ingredients and tips
- Cocoa butter.
- Coconut oil: you should use coconut oil to make this recipe because, unlike other oils, it solidifies.
- Vanilla extract: I always use homemade vanilla extract as it’s more affordable and extremely easy to make, but the store-bought version is also a good choice.
- Powdered sugar: you can buy powdered sugar or make it at home in about 2 minutes with just 2 simple ingredients.
- Soy milk powder: this vegan chocolate will work with any type of plant-based milk powder.
Is white chocolate vegan?
You may be wondering, is white chocolate vegan? Well, it normally isn't, as it usually contains some kind of dairy and you won't really find dairy-free white chocolate.
However, as I love chocolate (and white chocolate too), I decided to make my own white chocolate at home and I promise it is absolutely mouthwatering! Nobody will notice they're actually eating vegan chocolate.
