Ring Ding/yodle
0

8 posts in this topic

This is my idea:

Rebecca Reilly has a recipe for Chocolate Genoise cake - a chocolate cake baked in a jelly roll pan.

I'd like to bake that, fill it with buttercream icing (just Crisco, powdered sugar, a little water and some vanilla). Then I'd like to roll it up jelly roll fashion. After that, I want to slice 1" circles from it. Then I want to dip each 'disc' into a chocolate for the chocolate coating.

I'd consider this a cross between a ring ding and a yodel.

question: What do I do for the chocolate coating?

I bought some Silk brand soy creamer. It's not bad, better than soy milk, anyway. I was thinking to make a ganach with it (we are dairy free). Well, wouldn't ya know, there is a recipe for chocolate truffles right on the carton! I made the recipe, it was good. But the chocolate truffles were a tad too soft, even while refrigerated. So, what would you do for chocolate coating that'd be firm enough (for ring dings)? Could I just melt the chocolate chips and just not add the cream? Or would that be TOO firm? Any ideas?

I think that just the chocolate chips would work- I buy the gluten-free pretzels and dip them in melted chocolate chips and they are good. Good luck with the attempt! :)

You could try adding a few drops of oil, or crisco. Don't use any "milks", they have too much water in them.

Adding a little bit of coconut oil would work well too. It will harden with the chocolate and give it a nice texture.

I make this killer frosting type stuff that is almost the consistency of the chocolate on yodels.

All you need is a box (8 squares) of Baker's semi-sweet chocolate and a tub of Cool Whip. I don't think CW is dairy free, but I know there are dairy free brands out there.

You simply melt the cool whip and chocolate in the microwave and stir it until smooth. You could pour it over your treats or dunk them (the stuff is fairly liquidous (my new word) when warm and sets semi-firm when at room temp - hard if you put it in fridge).

Now i want a yodel! :P

Baker's Chocolate has 'milk solids' in it, so my dd can't have that. Cool Whip has caseinate in it, so that's out, too. What brand of whipped topping is actually dairy free? Where do you get it? Each brand at my local grocery stores have caseinate. I've heard of something called Hip Whip - a soy whipped cream. Where on earth do you get it?

So, the topping you make is just like the coating of a ring ding? Not mushy, not too hard?

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
