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