Welcome to the second day of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies, being hosted by the fabulous Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake. In the event you missed the kickoff yesterday, Amy Green of Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free, shared a recipe for Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti. Amy is also hosting a giveaway for FREE baking supplies, so be sure to stop by and enter.
Tomorrow, December 3rd, be sure to visit Gluten Free Life with Jen for the third installment of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies.
Before I go any further, I would like to send a big Thank You! shout out to my friend Alisa Fleming for saving me this holiday season. Alisa is the Founder and Chief Editor of GoDairyFree.org, and the author of not one, but TWO great dairy-free blogs: Alisa Cooks and Dairy Free and Fit. As many of you know, the past couple of months have thrown me a few curve balls and I now find myself on the path of re-learning how to bake without the use of dairy and eggs. I have been relying heavily on Alisa’s websites and her magnificent book, Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, and Casein-Free Living, while I get my new sea legs on.
I followed Hannah’s quick and simple recipe to the tee. I think. Okay, I wasn’t sure if “Regular” Coconut Milk meant the full fat canned coconut milk or So Delicious Original Coconut Milk but I decided to go with So Delicious because it doesn’t have a detectable coconut-y flavor.
I know, I know. Lots of folks love the flavor of coconut, but for me, it makes me think I’m eating suntan lotion. Hawaiian Tropic Fudge. Panama Jack Fudge. Banana Boat Fudge. You remember all those great suntan lotions baking oils from the 1980′s, don’t ya?
Apparently, Alisa anticipated this about me ahead of time, so she suggested I also leave off the shredded coconut topping. Instead, I folded in 1 cup of chopped walnuts before I poured the mixture into the prepared pan, which is how my little chocolate monster loves his “buuudge” anyway.
Alisa also shares several other variations for this recipe, including one with crushed candy canes, so be sure to stop by GoDairyFree.org for this vegan fudge recipe and a few great ideas to inspire your own creation!
I love Alisa’s book Go Dairy Free so much that I would like to personally share a copy with TWO of my fabulous readers!
But wait, there’s more.
I will also be giving both winners a FREE Oxo Good Grips Potato Ricer! This is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets of all time and I shared my affinity for it in my post on “Eventually Instant” Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes.
