these bars are gluten-free and DF, not sure if they are making eggs for easter or not.

I would beware of those! Some are sweetened with malted grain and it says on some of the packages they can not guarantee that they are gluten free.

I make my own chocolates using molds and Enjoy Life Chocolate chips. It's easy to do using the microwave. Simply heat the chips on 1/2 power, stirring every 30 seconds or so. You want to get them to the point where they are starting to melt. Then melt the rest of the way by simply stirring. I do mine in a large glass measuring cup.

Use a smallish spoon to fill your molds, unless of course you have a large mold! Be careful not to overfill. You can even buy little squared of colored foil to wrap the candies in. I don't have any egg molds. They were out at the time I ordered mine. I do have small bunnies and some flowers though.

One of my daughters is gluten and dairy free and the other is dairy free. I went into the store (VT) and they were very helpful. They had a book in the store that listed every ingredient in everything they sell. She could tell me exactly which chocolates were dairy and gluten free. I bought several things for my girls though I don't recall that I got any eggs (I don't have them in front of me now). I know that I did get chocolate bunnies though. Their chocolate is delicious. If you go to their site, there's a phone number listed. I assume if you call they can tell you which chocolate is gluten and dairy free (I don't see a listing on the website) and then you could order directly from them or find a store near you that carries them.

Does that help?

My son is also gluten and dairy free. Dark chocolate is naturally dairy free - if you go to your health food shops they will have dark chocolate eggs and many of them will have it marked on the egg that it is both gluten and dairy free. Dark chocolate is slightly bitter but still sweet and my son loves it! Make sure that it has a high percentage coca and that will ensure it is dairy free but ask the assistants to make sure.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
