Non-Dairy Candy Recipe
0

15 posts in this topic

Once again, we are having an after work Xmas cocktail party for the people my hub works with. It will be about 40 people, mostly women. Last year, I forgot this fact & had enough food for 40 teenage boys.

We are going to do a similiar format of wine, cheese, chocolates. Instead I'm going for a few different cheeses - like a lemon one. We will do some chocolate truffles & fudge. Everything is soooo dairy focused, I would like a candy or bite-sized dessert I could make that wouldn't be dairy. Doesn't have to be chocolate, maybe something fruity?

I''ll also have some salami, olives, fruit, gluten-free crackers, too.

Thanks for your ideas.

There are non dairy chocolates. I have no idea what they are, just that they exist.

You could do nondairy covered nuts (melt nondairy chocolate chips).

What about Buckeyes, using the same chips? That's peanut butter, sugar, a fat (use dairy free sub) and dip half in chocolate, right?

Yes, I'm a chocoholic.

What about a cake or something similar using coconut? They look yummy, unfortunately I think I have a coconut issue so I never try them.

Strawberries in a dipping sauce (could be chocolate). I think I've heard of balsamic glazes used with strawberries.

Milk-free cookies? Brownies?

macaroons, or (more exotic) mochi

Meringue cookies...here's a recipe I haven't tried: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Almond-Meringue-Cookies/Detail.aspx

If you happen to have a fondue pot, a simple homemade chocolate sauce is so good with fresh fruits, and so festive. You could have an amaretto flavored whipped cream for your guests who partake in dairy. Easy to make. The chocolate sauce would probably be good in a small crock pot too. (You could wrap the pot in Christmas paper with a little scotch tape... ;)

Hope you have a great party.

Have you checked out E. Amsterdam's Cooking with Almond Flour? She has a Christmas Cookie recipe in that book, but I haven't tried it yet. Love her crackers recipe though!

You can make vrious grown-up gelatins. Martha Stewatr has a bunch of recipes on her site. A sweeter wine or champagne, muscat, prosecco etc. make a gelatin out of it, add in berries pour it into those little plastic wine glasses from the $1 store and you've got an elegant fun dairy-free dessert.

Wooo! Sounds good! Just have to keep the kids out of the " adult jello".

My mom has a bunch of shot type glasses and small wine glasses. Just depends on if I want to get a tetanus shot and dig around in her basement. :blink:

Maybe I could use the leftover Elmo Dixie cups?

truffles? Super easy:

2c coconut milk-the thick stuff in the can

3c dairy free chocolate chips (most grocery stores have at least 1 brand w no milk, I get mine at Fred Meyer-it's their brand)

dairy free coatings--i.e. shredded coconut, ground almonds, cocoa powder, etc...

microwave the coconut milk till it starts to boil

add chocolate

cover and let sit for 2-4 minutes

stir well until glossy and beautiful

refridgerate till firm

line a cookie sheet w parchment (or a silpat if you have one ;) )

scoop out ~tbs of chocolate

roll into a ball

roll in coating of choice

freeze

take out an hour or so before the party and let sit at room temp

soooooooo delish!!

For Cheese use Munster. Its so smooth and tasty. If you have never used it before the color can be off putting. Its orange mold on the outside. You cut that off, and the inside is a creamy white. My favorite cheese, and it also just became available at my local grocery store. Try it out. Great with wine (lol jk, I don't drink wine but if I did it would be a red wine). B)

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Thanks Cristiana. It was Mistyx7 and night driving. Migraine type is very personal but does not appear to be closely connected to celiac or my peculiar scotomas. If you think going gluten-free has improved it that deserves a separate topic!

      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.
