CREATE A HAMPER
You can pick up so many dairy free chocolates in supermarkets these days and as a rule of thumb, a large majority of dark chocolate is naturally vegan! Just check the back for any dairy, eggs or whey protein! Just grab yourself some sort of container or basket from a charity shop and get filling it with all of your vegan finds!
Our top picks for the hamper:
Oreos, Ombar, Doisy and Dam, Vego White Chocolate
and Vego Chocolate Spread!
Try your hand at making some traditional hot cross buns to share! This is one of our favourite vegan easter recipes from Delightful Adventures.
Why not bake and decorate some biscuits and give them out! These make perfect vegan easter desserts after that big old roast! Here are some of our favourite designs on Pinterest at the moment.
Fancy treating yourself to something sweet this Easter? Get yourself down to The Vurger Co. and grab one of our infamously indulgent shakes! Choose from Oreo, Chocolate Hazelnut, Banana Caramel, Vanilla, Lotus Biscoff and Salted Caramel Popcorn!
