My mom makes fudge with coconut milk, I think it's a straight substitution. The kind of fudge made with marshmallow cream

I haven't tried making fudge...even when I could have dairy :)

But, these people make the best gluten-free DF and nut free fudge I've found!

Thanks Everyone, this is a start. I will post what I come up with & I just might try that chocolate site. I guess there is no gluten in their facility, I am just so super sensitive.

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!

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
