The 14 Best Vegan Boxes of Chocolate for Valentine’s Day – VegNews

You cannot fail by gifting chocolates on Valentine’s Day—unless your significant other has a chocolate allergy, in which case, we send our condolences. These vegan-friendly chocolatiers have stepped up their game for the special occasion—offering silky smooth and velvety confections in unparalleled flavors from Hazelnut Praline Cream to White Wine Pear and more. Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, so order a vegan box from one of these 14 chocolate shops today. 

1. Cocoa Parlor
This isn’t your standard box of chocolates where you’re left with a box of half-eaten, subpar truffles. As a small-batch, inventive chocolatier, Cocoa Parlor’s Vegan Truffle Box showcases twelve unique one-bite wonders that will make you fall in love. Our favorites include the Strawberry Milkshake, Balsamic Fig, and Dark Chocolate PB. 

2. Lagusta’s Luscious
Any gift selection from this vegan chocolatier is sure to make your significant other’s heart soar, but this special edition Box of Hearts has been made just for the day of love. The artfully decorated assortment includes nineteen pieces of handcrafted chocolate such as White Wine and Pear Chocolate Creams and Violet Caramels. If you’re feeling generous, you may want to ask your lover to split the box with you—but we won’t judge if you keep it all for yourself. 

3. Karma Baker
While known for its gluten-free baked goods, this allergen-friendly bakery has expanded into truffles for the season of love. Choose from four-piece assortments of chocolate, orange, or strawberry buttercream truffles that will melt in your mouth—and the heart of anyone you desire.  

4. Dandelion Chocolate
Technically, this chocolate doesn’t come in a box, but it does come with an elegant ribbon and three remarkable bars of single-origin vegan dark chocolate. For the true dark-chocolate lover who can appreciate the nuances of pure chocolate tasting, this is the gift to get. 

5. Alter Eco
It’s February 13 (or the morning of February 14) and you’ve forgotten to order your chocolates online. Run to your nearest Whole Foods or health-conscious grocery store and pick up a bag of these intensely dark and velvety Alter Eco Superdark Truffles. You might want to buy a bouquet of roses while you’re at it. Just a thought. 

6. Coracao
Build your own box of vegan chocolate delights and get 15-percent off your custom creation. Choose from classic Peppermint Patties to Mulberry Cacao Nib Hearts to Almond Butter Cups and more. This option is ideal for those with food sensitivities as all options are peanut, gluten, cane sugar, and soy-free. 

7. Raaka Chocolate
Why give eight tiny truffles when you can give eight full-sized chocolate bars? Raaka’s Library Gift Box showcases the company’s delicious range of products including flavors such as Bourbon Cask Aged, Oat Milk, Bananas Foster, and Green Tea Crunch. This box has a chocolate to match any sweet craving. 

8. Amanda’s Own Confections
Send some love to this Ohio vegan chocolatier by purchasing a bag of adorable Valentine’s Day-themed confections. From the exquisitely decorated chocolate hearts to the picture-perfect present boxes, each piece melts in your mouth for a decadently pure chocolate experience. 

9. Hotel Chocolat
We will gladly pay for the extra shipping and currency exchange just for a taste of these UK-based chocolates. While the company offers smaller vegan treats such as dark chocolate hearts, we highly suggest going all-in with the All Dark Vegan Chocolate Hamper Collection. From the hefty Dark Chocolate & Cacao Nibs Slab to the dainty Dark Chocolate Ginger Puddles—this hamper has more than enough chocolaty goodies to share. 

10. Rescue Chocolate
When you make a purchase from this nonprofit chocolatier, you’re doing more than saving yourself or your S.O. from unmet chocolate cravings—you’re saving animals. A portion of the proceeds from these Wild at Heart Bonbons will go toward causes that keep wild and exotic animals out of zoos, circuses, and laboratories. Each feel-good treat is filled with a tart raspberry ganache enrobed in vegan dark chocolate. 

11. Compartes
These sleek chocolate boxes are the epitome of luxury. This sophisticated chocolate brand produces a number of divine vegan bars—such as Salted Pistachio or Dark Chocolate Pretzel—but we’ve got our eye on the gift sets. Choose from an assortment of Almond Butter-Filled Chocolates, Marzipan Dark Chocolates, or Hazelnut Praline Cream Chocolate Truffles to truly pamper your main squeeze. 

12. Missionary Chocolates
When plans go a bit haywire on your special day—dinner is burning, you missed the show, you’re spending the night alone on the couch for the third year in a row—chill out with these CBD-infused truffles. If it’s an especially taxing night, don’t worry; they also come in Extra Strength. Not into CBD? Opt for a box of Missionary’s dozens of CBD-free flavors from Elderberry to Simply Espresso.  

13. Amore di Mona
Everyone gets giddy when presented with a large heart-shaped box of chocolates. It’s one of those things we would never (or rarely) buy for ourselves yet is so appreciated when gifted. This generous assortment comes with 33 chocolate confections with flavors ranging from solid dark chocolate hearts to cherry truffles. On second thought, we might just buy one for ourselves. 

14. Fine & Raw Chocolate
No need to wrap this gift—these eight handcrafted truffles are delicately nestled in holiday tissue paper and decorated with a heart-printed ribbon. The raw chocolate selection includes melt-in-your-mouth classic, sea salt, hazelnut, orange, and espresso varieties. Sometimes, chocolate is all you need in life.
