  • Melt Vanilla Candiquik according to directions on the package
  • Add all the ingredients and mix well. Tip: place this mix in the fridge to cool (approx 30 min)…This is an important step.
  • On a cookie sheet, scoop 1/2"  -1” balls, tightly formed (smaller is usually better since they are gluten free), and bake for 10 minutes
  • Let cool on a sheet of wax paper.
  • Melt chocolate Candiquik and simply dip half, or however much of the cookie you want... in the Candiquik.
  • Set on the wax paper to dry and you're done!

Next to the baking chips in most stores. It is an artificial melting chocolate.

It looks like Candiquik is a meltable candy-coating. I'm guessing chocolate intended for candy-making would do well.

Sounds good. Could Candiquick be substituted for regular chocolate?

The directions say to add "all" the ingredients to the Vanilla Candiquik but then it says to melt the Chocolate Candiquik separately. I am assuming then you don't put the chocolate in with all the cookie dough ingredients.

The cookies are dipped in the chocolate candiquik after they are baked. At least that's the way I read it.

Never heard of Candiquick. Confusing directions because the picture shows a normal looking peanut butter cookie - no chocolate.

Yes but...

I didn't read that far. Yikes... A hefty dose of perspective in that one. For anyone reading this is the post:

Hi! I'm new to the Celiac world. I have been gluten free for around seven months, but still seem to get glutened on a regular basis. I have been sick since January '16 and think that is when it triggered, but I didn't realize until October what it was. By that time I was pregnant with my little boy who is due in June. I also have an almost 4 year old daughter. I am really torn and wondering if I need to really be tested? I have very strong suspicions that I am a true celiac because my aunt has been diagnosed. Part of me says it doesn't matter, just live gluten free and assume you are, but the other part says I need to get tested so I know if my kids are at risk. So far my daughter is fine. She was grain free until after her first birthday, I plan on doing the same with my son. But I also don't want them to suffer the way I have. What would you do? The reason I don't want to get tested is I don't want to start eating it again and feel terrible while I have little kids, last year was so hard and I just want to get strong again. I also plan to bf for a few years and don't necessarily think it's a good idea to eat gluten while bf right? Thank you!

Welcome too! Sorry to hear you're suffering now. If you can nail the diet you should improve. You should also think about vitamin supplements. There's a good chance that you're suffering from one or more deficiencies as a result of the affects of celiac on your intestine's capacity to draw nutrients from your food. A good multi vitamin is a must, just make sure its gluten free and see if your doctor can refer you to a dietician as Lochella's has.

Oh I had heard his name and read some stuff about him but hadn't come across this video! Thanks!!
