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

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 my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
