Jestgar, I made my fudge like your mom makes with the marshmallows & it tastes wonderful, only thing was I made one third of my usual recipe which makes 5 lbs, and I guessed on the coconut milk & put a little too much, it might not harden perfectly. So, darn I might have to make it again before Christmas to test out the recipe :P

For those that cannot do dairy & cannot do chocolate, as I was cooking up the base of the fudge, I was thinking wow, you could just put in the marshmallows, & dried fruit like maybe some dried cherries, & nuts & some coconut & make a non chocolate candy.

If anyone wants to try this before I make my next batch, here is my recipe with the coconut milk amout adjusted to what I think it should be.

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 stick margarine ( if you can do dairy use butter)

1/2 cup coconut milk (or canned milk, or almond milk etc)

put ingredients in a heavy stainless steel pan, bring to rolling boil, boil for 7 minutes, stir in one bag of Gluten-free Casein-free chocolate chips & one bag of miniature marshmallows, (I use Kraft), stir in 2 cups of chopped pecans & pour into a buttered pan, let set overnight & cut the next day. I cut each piece & wrap in foil.

Note: I just made this for the second time & I used 1/2 Cup plus 1 Tablespoon of a Taste of Tai Coconut Milk, it tastes great but was almost a little too dry, so I would suggest to add another tablespoon or Two of coconut milk,

If you can have products with soy lecithin....I have a great recipe.

Carob Fudge from Newstart Lifestyle Cookbook

4 cups date or malt sweetened , non dairy carob chips (substitute with non gluten, non dairy chocolate chips)

1 cup almond or peanut butter

1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup raisins

Place chips and almond butter in a double boiler over low heat. Heat just until chips begin to melt, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Combine with nuts and raisins and mix together well. Press mixture into a flat casserole dish and chill. (I found it easier to line with wax paper.

I haven't made this since going gluten free so haven't tried it with non gluten, non dairy chips

Andrea, thank you so much for that recipe, I am putting it in my file, it sounds wonderful. Since I cannot eat chocolate bars anymore - because of the dairy, I am thinking I will have to make my own candy & this sounds more like something I would like on a regular basis.

The casien free gluten free chocolate chips are wonderful, this is the first time I tried them. I used SunSpire Organic Chocolate Chips. They do have soy lecithin in them, but I seem to be okay with a little soy.

Of course they have the disclaimer on the package that they are not guaranteed gluten free, but I get a stomach ache with just a whiff of gluten & I got nothing with this fudge!!!!!! I am just so excited to have some chocolate! !!! It is also my only caffein, since I do not drink tea, sodas, or coffee, so I have to be careful not to eat it too late, or I will be bouncing off the walls all night!

Artgirl, you will love the fudge & Amdrea's recipe sounds great. I have another candy recipe that I will post for you. It is dates & sugar boiled together with nuts added. I will have to look it up.

How long have you been gluten-free? Is your glycemia (sp) getting better?

Andrea, I have not gotten the Enjoy Life Chocolate chips yet, but I hear that a lot of people use them. I just picked this bag up at Whole Foods.

If you can find any dairy-free chocolate chips, semisweet maybe, it seems like pretty much everyone except me likes this recipe (I don't like chocolate unless it's in its bitter, unsweetened form). It's from Bette Hagman's vast collection.

3 cups marshmallows

1 cup chunky peanut butter, or creamy, but add peanuts to taste

2 cups chocolate chips

1 stick butter

Melt in a microwave, put in a container and let set for a while in the refridgerator, and enjoy.

On top of it all, it's next to impossible to mess this one up too :P

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE. After 2 years off gluten, dairy and soy, I was recently diagnosed with additional egg and cane sugar allergies. So I thought I'd never find a 'safe' chocolate or fudge. I CAN eat cocoa and maple syrup, but not cane sugar. I have all those ingredietns (almond butter, real maple syrup and cocoa in my cupboard now. I can't wait to try that recipe!!! :)

:) Hi, I'm new here. My daughter is gluten free, dairy free not including 7 or 8 other things she can't have! (Due to food intolerances) My son is dairy allergic. SEVERELY! Anyway, if you are looking for chocolate that is dairy free, Paskesz brand is dairy free for sure because it is Kosher parve for Jewish people who follow strict rules about when dairy can be eaten. Meat and dairy can never be eaten together, so parve means, kind of like, a neutral food. Can be eaten with meat or dairy. I'm also pretty sure that they are completely gluten free. If you look on their web site you can probably even order soy free. Especially during Passover which occurs near Easter. Soy isn't Kosher for Passover. Jewish markets are a wonderful place to get dairy free products! If you don't have a Jewish market near you, At least theres always ordering online!!!

Do you know where you can order online? I found their website and can't see that you can order from them. I saw some of this brand at other places but it doesn't list ingredients. And since they make things containing wheat, I would worry that they might not be gluten free.

I recommend the Enjoy Life chocolate chips for everyone, they're fabulous and they have only cocoa powder and cocoa butter in them, that's it, no soy! Enjoy Life makes food free from the top eight alergens, dairy soy gluten blah blah I forgt the rest, oh, nuts too.

Hi juliebove, I replied earlier, but i think I did it wrong! I'll try this again. ( i'm not that computer savy, yet!) I did some research and found out some info. The paskesz brand of chocolate chips are gluten free. Go to www.paskesz.com/baking.html to see a list of items that are. I would never feel comforable with anyone taking my word for it. Also I found out that anything marked kosher for passover is gluten free EXCEPT anything that says contains Matzoh meal or matza ( sp?) meal/ matza Farfel or cake meal. There is a passover chat going on in the gluten free forum, you might want to check out. To order paskesz products, go to www.parkeastkosher.com. They are $3.59 a bag. Kind of expensive compared to at the Jewish market. Also check out www.chocolategelt.com. They sell the chocolate coins. Yummy! Hope this helps!!! Good luck with your little one.

I buy those, and I do make them into chocolates, but it would be nice to find some chocolates made up that had no soy or dairy in them.

I checked, but they don't list the ingredients so I would hesitate to order. Daughter can't have soy and most chocolate contains it.

Thanks!

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      Welcome, @ModernLifeIsWar! Celiac has over 300 symptoms, but it looks like you have some symptoms that appear a lot in those diagnosed with celiac. I suggest you take these symptoms to your doctor and ask for a GI consult and to get the full blod panel to test for celiac disease. The gold standard is an endoscope, where 4 or more biopsies of the intestines are taken. The caveat is that you must be on a diet with gluten for all tests to be accurate, and you must continue eating gluten until all testing is done.  So, if it were me, I would start eating gluten again and get that referral.  However, you need to make the decision that is best or you.  Edited to Add: Also, since you eat a lot of processed food, your body might be reacting to other things, such ad additives. 
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I don't have any real major stomach issues, however I've had a diet for years very high in gluten consisting of tons of junk food (pizza, cookies, cereal, donuts, etc..).  A few symptoms I have noticed over the years have been: -Migraines (very frequent) -Large increase in eye floaters -Very bad sinus congestion -Very bad anxiety -Semi frequent bouts of diarrhea/runny bowel movements. Not all the time, but it certainly happens more than I feel is normal.   However, in terms of stomach pain I haven't noticed much. I do get very bloated sometimes however, mainly just contributed this to my crappy diet. Anyways, since the beginning of April I've been having a lot of neurological issues and after reading more into gluten intolerance I'm wondering if it couldn't be associated: -Full body tremors ranging from hands, arms, legs, and core. (i.e. I shake a lot when doing stuff with my hands, if I try to do sit ups my whole body will shake, etc..). I've had minor hand tremors in the past but this problem has recently blown to a whole new level -Muscle spasms all over and mild cramping -tingling feelings randomly throughout my  body in all parts including face and head -Shortness of breath -Racing heart rate when doing physical activity (i.e. walking upstairs and I'm a fairly active person) -Minor issues with balance and coordination -Brain fog   I'm going to see a neurologist in 3 weeks, but I decided to give gluten free a try as of two days ago. I've also been taking a lot of important vitamins and nutrients (b12, d, b complex, fish oil, magnesium, etc..). I'd be interested to know if anyone here has experienced similar symptoms (most notably tremors and muscle spasms) and had success switching to gluten free. I've seen anecdotal cases posted, so I'm hoping that maybe this is my issue. Another thing to note is my younger sister has very bad stomach issues. She hasn't seen a Dr about it and can't follow a diet to save her life, but she commonly complains of pain, gas, bloating, nasty bowel movements, etc... after eating out. So I think there is a possible genetic factor here. What would be the best Dr to seek out in helping me diagnose such a thing? Also is it normal to have stomach issues AFTER starting gluten free? Today is my third day and I've had 2 bouts of diarrhea and very loud stomach growling. Possibly from switching from a diet full of sugar and gluten to one with significantly less and gluten free?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
