    Celiac.com 11/05/2013 - Halloween is over, and this year we offered a fun alternative to the standard store-bought fare--marshmallow caramel puffs.

    Photo: CC--FurryscalyThey are fun and easy to make, and kids just love to help make them, and, of course, to eat them. They turned out great, so I thought I'd share them here for next year.

    This recipe makes a dozen marshmallows, but it's easy to scale accordingly.

    Ingredients:
    1 dozen regular marshmallows
    1 dozen Kraft caramels
    ¾ cup almonds, crushed
    6 ounces melted dark chocolate

    Directions:
    Place crushed almonds into a bowl.

    Melt caramels in a double-boiler.

    Dip marshmallows halfway into the melted caramel.

    Remove, and let the excess drip off, then dip in crushed almonds.

    Place on a lightly oiled parchment-lined baking sheet until set.

    Drizzle white tops with melted chocolate.

    Allow to cool and serve.

    Note: Any marshmallows made by the Kraft, or Doumak companies are gluten-free. This includes Jet Puffed, Campfire, WalMart, and CVS brand marshmallows.

    Kraft caramels are also gluten-free.

    This is one of my favorite desserts to make; it’s so fun to cook and serve. The sauce becomes incredibly aromatic as it cooks down. As simple, yet exotic desserts go, it’s a perfect way to top off a meal with flair. I usually poach peaches or pears in wine, but the rosemary in this recipe does something magical with the peach, I didn’t want to hide it behind the wine.
    Ingredients:
    2 pounds firm, ripe peaches
    ½ cup sugar
    ¼ cup water
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 strips lemon rind
    2 tablespoon lemon juice
    2 sprigs fresh rosemary
    Directions:
    Cut unpeeled peaches into 1-inch slices and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
