What are vegan Easter eggs made of?

Vegan Easter eggs typically use plant-based alternatives to traditional ingredients like milk and butter. This often involves using ingredients like rice milk, coconut milk, or nut-based milks for the chocolate, and cocoa butter or other plant-based fats for structure.

Does vegan Easter chocolate taste as good as regular Easter chocolate?

This is subjective, but many people find vegan Easter chocolate to be just as delicious as their traditional counterparts. Vegan chocolate has come a long way, offering creamy textures and rich flavours that can rival dairy-based chocolate.
