im guessing vegans cant eat chocolate, see i was seriously considering becoming a vegan...no cheese eggs or milk is fine
then i realized that chocolate has milk in it (well duuuur) i could not live without chocolate!!!

get a chocolate cookbook, that has lots of receipes for choccie biscuits and cakes. pick the ones that are made of mainly cocoa powder, sugar and marg. substitue marg for soya marg and bingo...... as much vegan chocolate as you can eat and much cheaper than buying it in the shops.

here's a starter for you

1 tablespoon cocoa powder (preferably fairtraded!)
2 tablespoons icing sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoon soya marg
rice crispies

put all ingriedients into pan except rice crispies. heat gently until everything is melted and syruppy. stir in rice crispies until they only have a thin coating of syrup.

let them cool down for a bit then eat.

these are very yummy and can have things like nuts, raisins and broken biscuits added.

i recently got a chocolate cook book and there are hundreds of ideas for yummy chocolate things that have tasty vegan substitutes.

there are alot of plain vegan choccie bars about. these are deliscious melted over cakes and biccies.

good luck!!!

peace and love

Is that all dark chocolate? Thats great news :DAs far as I know. I mean the whole point of dark chocolate is that it hasn't got milk in it. Probably worth checking if you're not sure though. I remember from my vegan days that dark bounty bars used to be vegan. Dunno if they still are.

Well im going vegan from today caus' im on a detox anyway so its a good way to start off.
