Today it is my absolute pleasure to have my sweet bloggy friend Lori who is a member of the Waldorf Moms, as my very special guest. She creates delicious recipes for dairy free and gluten free diets. She is both kind and very talented. She lives in the Aloha state surrounded by sand and surf, and she finds inspiration for some of her wonderful projects by her surroundings. Today she is sharing her dairy free chocolate recipes. Perfect for Easter!
Homemade Dairy Free Chocolate for Easter…Easy and Delicious!
Many thanks to Katherine for inviting me to be here today. I send my warmest aloha from sunny Hawaii!
Waldorf (inspired) Moms is a place for Moms to gather to: create beauty—beautiful Waldorf (inspired) toys and handwork, nurture our families–in a holistic way, paying careful attention to nutrition, and nurture ourselves—taking time to nourish our bodies and spirits.
Today I’m sharing a recipe for healthy dairy free chocolate that I am making for my children for Easter. Like my dear host Katherine, my son cannot eat dairy. It is not easy being a dairy free kid and it’s especially difficult on Easter when all of the other kids are getting fun chocolate bunnies or chocolate eggs. (buying dairy free chocolate bunnies and eggs here in Hawaii is virtually impossible!)
This year I finally figured out a way to make dairy free homemade Easter chocolate that is delicious and fun. And, the best part is that it is truly EASY. The chocolate only uses 4 whole food ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes of prep time. The hardest part of the recipe is waiting for the chocolate to harden in the freezer or refrigerator! I’ve also started making yummy dairy free white chocolate.
The key to making these chocolates special is to take time to mold and wrap your chocolates in a beautiful way. I found very inexpensive chocolate molds and colored foil at a local cooking store. I added brightly colored ribbons and little baskets that I had at home. You don’t have to be fancy though…You can use muffins cups or a mini loaf pan as molds if you’d like.
I hope that you will try to make your own homemade dairy free chocolate…for Easter or for anytime!
Perfect for everyone, especially for those of us who have to be dairy and gluten free. A wonderful post my friend. It has been a pleasure having you share with my lovely readers. Hugs!

Wow such a simple recipe. I never knew making dairy free chocolate would be so easy. I have all of those ingredients and could probably make these in a jiffy. Thanks for sharing this on The Yuck Stops Here!

Thank you for sharing this recipe! Looks great!
The chocolates “playing” on the wheat grass is so beautiful! Love the ribbon wrapped little lauhala boxes, too!
My 5 year old daughter loves making Lori’s chocolate with me and my whole family loves eating it! My family thinks this chocolate is better than store bought!

I’ve been following Lori on her waldorf mom’s site and I just love all of her creations and recipes. It’s a work of art. She is so gifted and her presentation of her things she make are so delightful and cheerful looking. She has an eye for artistic beauty for color combinations and presentation. Great time to make chocolate candies for Easter!
I love this! I am eager to make chocolates for my children that I know are good for them. I love the way Lori wrapped them too. So special.
