This easy vegan chocolate syrup is kinda dangerously delicious. Like, I make this and I’m licking the spoon type of good. 

Most vegan chocolate sauces have you cook things on the stove or use oil based vegan butters. Not this recipe! It’s perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth because it is an easy recipe that comes together quickly. 

This chocolate sauce mixes together in a bowl, doesn’t harden up, and can be used over ice cream, in glasses of non-dairy milk for a decadent glass of chocolate milk, or even to dip fruit in! 

It’s luscious, rich, creamy, dreamy, and ready to enjoy in only 3 minutes. 

Ingredients 

This recipe only uses a handful of ingredients to satisfy your chocolate craving. 

Ingredients for the vegan chocolate sauce in various glass bowls on a wood table. Black and white labels have been added to name each ingredient.
Ingredients in bowls already measured out and ready to mix together.
  • Cocoa Powder – Use Dutch processed cocoa powder if you have it. Dutch is naturally sweeter and less bitter than Natural or Unprocessed cocoa powder. 
  • Maple Syrup – This is used both to sweeten this syrup but also to help thicken it. 
  • Milk of Choice – Use any type of plant based milk that you like! I typically reach for rice milk, but almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or your favorite will also work here! 
  • Vanilla Extract – A touch of vanilla really rounds out the cocoa and maple, helping to deepen the flavors as well as to bring out the floral notes of chocolate. 
  • Salt – Just a pinch of salt helps to balance out the flavors of the cocoa and really brings out the depth of flavor. Don’t skip this ingredient!

Variations

Want to make this a little thicker for dipping fruit or using as a spread? Add a bit of a nut butter, something like almond butter or peanut butter (about a tablespoon at a time) until you reach the viscosity you want. Allergic to nuts? No worries! Something like soy butter or sunflower seed butter will also be delicious. 

Instructions 

Make sure to check out the recipe card below for the full recipe and ingredient list.

Step One: Make the Sauce

A glass bowl and silver metal whisk on a wood table. The bowl is filled with the fully mixed chocolate sauce.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. Using a whisk, slowly stir until combined. At first the cocoa won’t want to incorporate, but keep whisking! It will eventually come together after a minute or two of whisking. 

And that’s it! I told you this was a super easy chocolate sauce recipe! 

Use immediately or chill in the fridge to thicken. 

Suggested Toppings

  • Drizzle over cakes, cupcakes, or pies 
  • Mix with your favorite milk to make dairy-free chocolate milk 
  • Dip fresh fruit in this for a healthy vegan chocolate sauce 
  • Add to non-dairy milk in a small saucepan and mix well over low heat to make a delicious mug of hot chocolate
