Dairy-Free Buckeyes

Dairy-Free Buckeyes2

I shared this recipe last year but it contained dairy-filled chocolateso I thought I would share how I went about making a dairy-free version this year. This was an easy tweak to make, especially since I had just received a complimentary sample of Boom Choco Boom Bars by Enjoy Life Foods.  You could also use […]

Homemade Marshmallows: Corn-Free and Egg-Free (and Heidi’s Favorite Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa)

Homemade-Corn-Free-Egg-Free-Marshmallows8

It only took me close to a year to attempt making homemade marshmallows again, but there is no better motivation than being thrust onto the food allergy playground! I first attempted to make corn-free, gelatin-free marshmallows last January (you can read that post here), but there were egg whites in it.  I also used xanthan […]

Handcrafted Dairy/Casein-Free Chewy Caramels

Dairy-Free Caramel

I am super excited about this recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free caramels because I have tried it 3 times using different substitute ingredients and each one produced a buttery, chewy caramel candy…perfect for dipping apples, making homemade candy treats, you name it. First, let me tell you how I landed on it.  I began my quest […]

Homemade Gluten Free “Nestle Crunch” Candy Bars

Rice Dream Crunch4

I got the idea for this the day I was working on my GF Rice Crispies post and dipping my Buckeyes in chocolate at the same time. A light bulb went off… I wonder how it would work out to make my own GF “Nestle Crunch” candy bar with chocolate and the Erewhon Crispy Brown […]

Peppermint Bark

GF Dad here. I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now that everyone in our home is effectively banished from Mom’s kitchen during the holidays.  There are some good reasons for this.  For starters, the rest of us are boys, which means we make big messes, don’t measure ingredients very well, and always want to run […]

Chocolate Fudge

Fudge

Okay, this is nothing spectacular, fudge is fudge right? Well, I just wanted to offer some suggestions for those who may want to make this recipe (or one like it) but haven’t because of the dairy. I made this batch with dairy but I think there is a nifty way around it for dairy free […]

Buckeye Candy

Buckeye Nut in Grass

I may live in New Mexico, but I hail from the great state of Ohio and in my heart I will always be a Buckeye.  What is a Buckeye you ask?  Other than the mascot for my Alma Mater, it also happens to be a poisonous nut from the state tree, the Buckeye Tree. So […]
