Need Replacement For Red Hot Candies
0

8 posts in this topic

I wanted to make these Christmas "candies" that my Mom used to make. They were similar in principle to rice krispy treats, only they used cornflakes and green food dye. The idea is to form them into little holly berry clusters by placing 2 or 3 red hots on each little pile. But my son has an allergic reaction to Red Dye #40.

Can anyone suggest a substitute to the redhots that would be gluten free and red dye 40 free?

Might take some creativity here-

Thanks.

How about some red jelly beans? Or you can use some colored frosting. I don't know what Red #40 is in, but you can look around.

Good luck!

How about dried fruit like dried cranberries? Might not be quite as bright of red, but the effect should still be similar.

Hi Gina,

I think I found your answer. http://www.naturalcandystore.com/c-gluten-free-candy.

Pomegranate Organic Candy

Made in the USA by Pure Fun

Contains approximately 40 pieces of individually-wrapped candy. This flavor is also available as a lollipop.

*Certified Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Kosher (KOF-K)

*Contains no peanuts, tree-nuts, soy, milk, or wheat. Manufactured in a segregated area of a facility that may produce products containing nuts.

Ingredients: Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Rice Syrup, Citric Acid, Natural Pomegranate Flavor and Natural Red Cabbage Color.

They may be kind of big, but you could crush them and use the pieces.
