If you’re used to milk chocolate, there are also some tips for making the adjustment to dark chocolate. Giving up milk chocolate was one of the most difficult parts of going vegan for me. I put it off to the very end.

Have you seen this video of kids trying dark chocolate for the first time?

That’s kind of what I thought about dark chocolate too.

But you know what? Our taste buds are malleable.

With a little time away from eating milk chocolate my taste buds changed. Before long, I found some dark chocolate I actually liked, and then I started trying different varieties of dark chocolate. Next thing you know, something crazy happened. Now, I don’t even like milk chocolate anymore. It has a sour taste to it, that you can’t even detect until you’ve been a milk free chocolate connoisseur for awhile.

So if you’re resisting the plunge, this dairy-free chocolate chip guide will help you make the transition from milk chocolate to dark chocolate!

Benefits of Dark Chocolate

Here’s one thing I bet you didn’t know about dark chocolate: It’s actually good for you. Believe it or not, dark chocolate includes:

  • Fiber
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • Flavanols.

Of course, chocolate chips also include sugar and cocoa butter (fat). That means you want to consume them in moderation. The good news is that dark chocolate is rich, so it doesn’t take much to satisfy that itch.

Is Dark Chocolate Dairy-Free?

Some dark chocolate is made without dairy, but it’s important to read the labels. If you have a severe dairy allergy, you will want to purchase products that are certified dairy-free or certified vegan. Otherwise, a lot of dark chocolate will be manufactured in plants or on assembly lines that also process dairy which can result in cross-contamination.

Dairy-Free Labels

If you are highly allergic to even trace amounts of dairy, you will want to choose products that are certified dairy-free.

  • Kosher Labels (OU)— Some people rely on Kosher designations on products (a capital U in a circle) to determine if a product is dairy-free or not. However, it appears that Kosher designations do not indicate if a product has been processed on a machine or in a factory that also processes dairy.
  • Vegan Labels (OV) — If you have strict allergies or you’re a strict vegan, look for certified vegan products (A capital V inside of a circle) and/or the word “vegan” on the product.
  • Casually Dairy-Free — If you’re making lifestyle changes only (not motivated by an allergy), you may be more flexible. For example, you may be open to products that do not have dairy in the ingredients but may be processed on machines or in factories that also process dairy products.

What to Look for in Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips

If you’re on the prowl for milk-free chocolate chips, look for chocolate, cocoa butter, usually soy lecithin, vanilla, and sugar. You will see some chocolate chips refer to a cacao percentage. This is the total amount of cocoa butter and cocoa solids from ground-up cacao beans. If you see milk fat or dairy listed as an allergen, then you should pass.

Oftentimes you will see a statement like: “processed on equipment that also equipment that also packages products that may contain milk, nuts, wheat, etc.” This means that the plant that manufactures these chocolate chips may also have dairy, nuts, etc. If you have a serious allergy and cannot tolerate any form of contact with dairy, then you should probably buy something else.

These are the most common ingredients you’ll find in dairy-free chocolate chips:

  • Chocolate — This will appear as cocoa beans, chocolate liquor, unsweetened chocolate, etc.
  • Sugar — This is self-explanatory, but strict vegans may want to know the source of the sugar
  • Cocoa Butter – It has the word “butter” in it, but it’s not referring to dairy butter. Cocoa butter is the fat part of the cocoa bean and is completely dairy-free.
  • Lecithin — Lecithin is used in chocolate chips as an emulsifier, to create a smooth consistency. Lecithin can be made from animal products unless otherwise stated. Sunflower and soy lecithin are both plant-based.

Dairy Free White Chocolate

If you’re looking for vegan white chocolate, you’re in luck because there are vegan versions listed above. You can also make your own and it’s pretty simple to make. People have reported mixed results with purchasing vegan white chocolate, but there are options both at health food stores and online.

    Years ago I used Diary Free Chips, they were very hard to find but were very good considering the alternative.

      The good news is they’re much easier to find these days. That’s why I included “accessible” on my selection criteria. Thanks for your comment! xoxo!

    Just a caution that Gittard is not fully safe in the instance of a food allergy with dairy- only because they do process their dark chocolate on the same equipment as milk chocolate.

      Hi Catherine. Yes, I agree, that’s why I included the section about “Dairy-free Labels” above. For people with allergies, they will want to be more particular about the equipment the chocolate is processed on.

    This is exactly the info I am looking for as I approach my first month of transitioning to vegan and know I need to figure out the chocolate! Thanks so much!!

    I guess unless the ingredients specify the source of lecithin, we assume it’s not vegan? I know you provided soy & sunflower examples, and then said it can be an animal product as well…

    • Avatar thumbnail image for MarlyMarly

      Hi Charlotte, so glad you found this page helpful. Yes, if it doesn’t specify some kind of plant-based lecithin then I assume it’s animal-based. There are so many good dairy-free chocolate chips out there! 🙂

    I tried to buy the Kirkland brand chocolate chips (Costco brand) today and found that they are no longer available. It made me very sad, as I am allergic to milk, and Kirkland chocolate chips have been my mainstay for chocolate chips. I went online to see if they might be available at costco.com, but the website also shows that they are not available. Just thought you would like to know that is no longer an option.

      Misery loves company, Karen, because we are in the same boat. Our Costco almost never carries Kirkland chocolate chips any more. Every now and then it will be on the shelves, and when it’s there, we stock up! I would say we’re really enjoying the dairy-free chocolate chips at Sprouts. The Sprouts brand chocolate chips are sold in packages and in the bulk section. Also, Trader Joe’s has a nice dairy-free chocolate chip too.

    Guittard chips are made on equipment that produces milk items and are not certified milk free. Your passing bad info. I found your site because I am looking to distribute milk free chips. I have the guittard statement.

    • Avatar thumbnail image for MarlyMarly

      Hi David. Please read the section above on dairy-free labels. I go into all of that. Some people, like vegans, are looking for dairy-free and are ok using products that have been prepared in factories that also process milk products. Other people are more particular because of dairy allergies. Each person has to read labels and choose products according to their needs.

    These look amazing. What about adding cacao paste instead of chocolate chips? Looking into at Amazon and other stores It seems cheaper to buy cacao paste, at around $15 per pound, plus no added sugar and 100% cacao
    Not going to lie, I just saved this recipe and I ´m going to use it as my base chocolate chip cookies recipe for my blog. https://rainforestflavor.com/blog/

    Hi Marly, First off- I am not the vegan police and 2nd- I LOVE your website. My family’s favorite breakfast casserole is from your recipes. But, I’ve been researching vegan chocolate chips for my start up vegan baking company and had always thought Kirkland/Costco chocolate chips were the best. However, because I am vegan certified I have to delve a little deeper. Just spoke to a representative at Costco and they said their chocolate chips aren’t considered vegan because they are “treated with bone char”. Some people won’t mind that but technically, they aren’t vegan. (I’m crushed) Will miss the big yummy affordable bag we always stocked up on as well!

      Hi Julie. Thanks for your comments and thorough research. However, I believe this sounds like an issue about refined sugar. In other words, any product that has sugar in it would fall into this category. For example, BBQ sauce or ketchup or my beloved Sriracha. Even PB2 powder or peanut butter or any product that has sugar in it. Even Peta lists Duncan Hines cake mixes as “accidentally vegan” and they have sugar in them.

      I had to make a decision about this early on my vegan life and that’s when I decided to be a secular vegan. I am passionate about my vegan life, but I’m not dogmatic about some of these peripheral ingredients, like sugar. I completely understand from your perspective of becoming certified vegan for your product that you would need to use a sugar alternative so you can get that label on your products. Thanks for your kind comment! And I can’t wait to learn more about your vegan product line!

    Hi Marly.
    After reading your response, I realized I’d lost sight of the bigger picture.
    You are right.
    My focus had narrowed with all the certified-vegan-cookie-research I’ve been wrapped up in and your words brought me back to my true north.
    I’m excited to bring a product to market that is certified vegan but, more importantly, I hope to show more people how easy and fulfilling a vegan lifestyle is, just as you are doing on your site. Clearly I would have turned many people off had I continued down that sugar/bone char research detour.
    Thanks for pulling me out of that rabbit hole!
    Sending much appreciation and hugs your way.

    Hi Marly,
    I would appreciate your hints on melting dairy free chips. I find that they are not as ‘stirable’ as semi sweet (dairy). What I mean is the melt is thicker and therefore harder to stir into and coat things. Would you recommend a teaspoon of solid veggie or coconut oil during the melting process to loosen things up? thanks for your help!

    • Avatar thumbnail image for MarlyMarly

      I agree Liza, and I usually recommend adding at least 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per 1 cup of dairy free chocolate chips. I have at times added up to 1 T of coconut oil per 1 cup of chocolate chips, but this creates a chocolate that should be refrigerated (especially in warmer temperatures). I hope this is helpful!

    Not all sugar is processed using bone char, in fact there are several brands out there, including the sprouts brand, that does not use bone char.

      Thanks, Tracy! That’s very helpful.
