What Easter candy is vegan?
There are a few vegan options in your grocery store Easter candy aisle. Sour Patch Bunnies, Sweet Tarts and Skittles are vegan. Aside from that, it’s a challenge to find vegan Easter candy in stores. I’ve listed below some of the best vegan candies that will make your vegan Easter basket extra awesome.
Vegan Easter Candy
These egg shaped containers are filled with chocolate candies reminiscent of traditional favorites. These are such cute chocolate treats to add to a vegan Easter basket.
Every Easter basket has to have a chocolate bunny! This milkless chocolate Easter bunny looks and tastes just like the traditional ones, but it’s vegan.
These vegan Easter lollipops are so cute! I loved white chocolate as a kid and it’s challenging to find white chocolate that’s vegan since it’s typically made from milk. These will be a cute and yummy addition to your vegan Easter basket.
Who doesn’t love truffles?! These vegan chocolate truffles come in different yummy flavors to tempt your taste buds and are an elegant touch to a vegan Easter basket for an adult.
Caramel is my favorite candy (after chocolate 🙂 ). I was so happy to find these coconut milk caramels. I love that they’re individually wrapped so you can put them in more than one Easter basket.
This could be a vegan Easter basket idea on its own. The adorable bunny bag is filled with vegan fruity and chocolate sweet treats. It would look adorable inside an Easter basket or as a gift basket on its own.
Vegan jelly beans can be difficult to come by. Most of them use beeswax and shellac (which is made from beetles) to make them shiny. I was so happy to find these sour jelly beans that are vegan and don’t have a bunch of junk ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors.
Vegan gummy candies are also hard to come by since many of them contain gelatin. These fruit snacks are a great alternative and are even colored with natural colors instead of artificial. The brand’s logo is a bunny making them perfect for a vegan Easter basket treat.
Vegan Baked Goods For A Plant Based Easter Basket
Cookies! This brand, Enjoy Life, makes my favorite chocolate chips and these vegan soft baked cookies do not disappoint.
These vegan brownies are perfect for Easter baskets because they come in twin packs. This brand also has other flavors of baked goods in this listing like blueberry fig bar. So yummy!
If your gift basket is going to someone who likes to bake, this vegan cake mix is the perfect gift. Pair it with the hazelnut spread below as a frosting for a drool worthy gift idea.
This hazelnut spread is a great alternative to Nutella (which is not vegan). I also love that it’s sugar free too! It would make a great frosting for the cake mix above.
You have no idea how excited I was to find out that Biscoff cookie butter is vegan! These cute snack packs of cookie butter and dipping sticks are a perfect vegan Easter basket stuffer. If you haven’t tasted this stuff, you’ve got to! Non-vegans will love them too!
What do vegans get for Easter besides candy and sweets?
Vegan Easter Basket Savory Snacks
You can put popcorn in a vegan Easter basket. Just be sure it doesn’t have butter, cheese, caramel flavor as these usually contain milk products. Check the label.
Potato chips that are plain or bbq flavor are usually vegan. Again, check the label to be sure. Lays plain potato chips are vegan.
Nuts and seeds are all vegan. If you can find a trail mix that is just nuts and dried fruit without any chocolate, that’s also a good option.
Fruit or applesauce cups are a healthy idea for a vegan Easter basket.
Some crackers that don’t have flavoring are vegan. Check the label to make sure there are no milk or animal products in them.

So if your gift recipient is easily offended, this may not be right for them, but I find it hilarious. The recipes are easy to make and flavorful and the way they’re presented is entertaining. It’s a great addition to a vegan Easter basket for someone who enjoys cooking and trying new foods.
