Hi everyone,

My daughter's class is having a hot chocolate party on Tues and the parents have been asked to bring finger foods. I'm not much of a baker but wanted to make something gluten-free that would be tempting enough for my daughter so that she wouldn't notice all the gluten-y baked goods.

I'd love any and all suggestions! Thank you!!

mmm... what about making cookie samwiches? Make a sugar cookie recipie (which you can find on here by searching), cut the dough to size, then put some frosting or whathaveyou inbetween the layers. For added fun, perhaps add some colored sugar or something dusted on top of them.

Random thought, not sure if it would work, but something like that might work.

How about fruit kabobs, cheese & deli meat roll-ups., marshmallow snowmen, Christmas mice cookies, gluten-free chex snack mix,, when we did this we made for everyone in the class.......another is sugar cookies (gluten-free, of cours) & ready made icing & jimmies & all the kids decorated a cookie themselves.

When my daughter was young, I made caramel corn. It's easy to make a big batch of it and I put it in individual bags so they could take it home if they wanted to and it would be free from cross contamination. Her class had mulitple food allergies so I needed something that was safe for all. Luckily the boy with the corn allergy wasn't in that class. He was a tough one!

If you want something more festive, make small popcorn balls. You can add bits of red and green jelly candies or little jelly beans if you want more color.

If her school allows peanut recipes, consider trying this. http://allrecipes.co...butter-cookies/

Or you could make meringue cookies dipped in chocolate.

Hope you both enjoy the holiday party!
