Thanks Everyone, this is a start. I will post what I come up with & I just might try that chocolate site. I guess there is no gluten in their facility, I am just so super sensitive.

Jestgar, I made my fudge like your mom makes with the marshmallows & it tastes wonderful, only thing was I made one third of my usual recipe which makes 5 lbs, and I guessed on the coconut milk & put a little too much, it might not harden perfectly. So, darn I might have to make it again before Christmas to test out the recipe :P

For those that cannot do dairy & cannot do chocolate, as I was cooking up the base of the fudge, I was thinking wow, you could just put in the marshmallows, & dried fruit like maybe some dried cherries, & nuts & some coconut & make a non chocolate candy.

If anyone wants to try this before I make my next batch, here is my recipe with the coconut milk amout adjusted to what I think it should be.

1 1/2 cups sugar

2/3 stick margarine ( if you can do dairy use butter)

1/2 cup coconut milk (or canned milk, or almond milk etc)

put ingredients in a heavy stainless steel pan, bring to rolling boil, boil for 7 minutes, stir in one bag of Gluten-free Casein-free chocolate chips & one bag of miniature marshmallows, (I use Kraft), stir in 2 cups of chopped pecans & pour into a buttered pan, let set overnight & cut the next day. I cut each piece & wrap in foil.

Note: I just made this for the second time & I used 1/2 Cup plus 1 Tablespoon of a Taste of Tai Coconut Milk, it tastes great but was almost a little too dry, so I would suggest to add another tablespoon or Two of coconut milk,

If you can have products with soy lecithin....I have a great recipe.

Carob Fudge from Newstart Lifestyle Cookbook

4 cups date or malt sweetened , non dairy carob chips (substitute with non gluten, non dairy chocolate chips)

1 cup almond or peanut butter

1 cup chopped nuts

1 cup raisins

Place chips and almond butter in a double boiler over low heat. Heat just until chips begin to melt, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Combine with nuts and raisins and mix together well. Press mixture into a flat casserole dish and chill. (I found it easier to line with wax paper.

I haven't made this since going gluten free so haven't tried it with non gluten, non dairy chips

Andrea, thank you so much for that recipe, I am putting it in my file, it sounds wonderful. Since I cannot eat chocolate bars anymore - because of the dairy, I am thinking I will have to make my own candy & this sounds more like something I would like on a regular basis.

The casien free gluten free chocolate chips are wonderful, this is the first time I tried them. I used SunSpire Organic Chocolate Chips. They do have soy lecithin in them, but I seem to be okay with a little soy.

Of course they have the disclaimer on the package that they are not guaranteed gluten free, but I get a stomach ache with just a whiff of gluten & I got nothing with this fudge!!!!!! I am just so excited to have some chocolate! !!! It is also my only caffein, since I do not drink tea, sodas, or coffee, so I have to be careful not to eat it too late, or I will be bouncing off the walls all night!

Artgirl, you will love the fudge & Amdrea's recipe sounds great. I have another candy recipe that I will post for you. It is dates & sugar boiled together with nuts added. I will have to look it up.

How long have you been gluten-free? Is your glycemia (sp) getting better?

Andrea, I have not gotten the Enjoy Life Chocolate chips yet, but I hear that a lot of people use them. I just picked this bag up at Whole Foods.

If you can find any dairy-free chocolate chips, semisweet maybe, it seems like pretty much everyone except me likes this recipe (I don't like chocolate unless it's in its bitter, unsweetened form). It's from Bette Hagman's vast collection.

3 cups marshmallows

1 cup chunky peanut butter, or creamy, but add peanuts to taste

2 cups chocolate chips

1 stick butter

Melt in a microwave, put in a container and let set for a while in the refridgerator, and enjoy.

On top of it all, it's next to impossible to mess this one up too :P

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE. After 2 years off gluten, dairy and soy, I was recently diagnosed with additional egg and cane sugar allergies. So I thought I'd never find a 'safe' chocolate or fudge. I CAN eat cocoa and maple syrup, but not cane sugar. I have all those ingredietns (almond butter, real maple syrup and cocoa in my cupboard now. I can't wait to try that recipe!!! :)

:) Hi, I'm new here. My daughter is gluten free, dairy free not including 7 or 8 other things she can't have! (Due to food intolerances) My son is dairy allergic. SEVERELY! Anyway, if you are looking for chocolate that is dairy free, Paskesz brand is dairy free for sure because it is Kosher parve for Jewish people who follow strict rules about when dairy can be eaten. Meat and dairy can never be eaten together, so parve means, kind of like, a neutral food. Can be eaten with meat or dairy. I'm also pretty sure that they are completely gluten free. If you look on their web site you can probably even order soy free. Especially during Passover which occurs near Easter. Soy isn't Kosher for Passover. Jewish markets are a wonderful place to get dairy free products! If you don't have a Jewish market near you, At least theres always ordering online!!!

Do you know where you can order online? I found their website and can't see that you can order from them. I saw some of this brand at other places but it doesn't list ingredients. And since they make things containing wheat, I would worry that they might not be gluten free.

I recommend the Enjoy Life chocolate chips for everyone, they're fabulous and they have only cocoa powder and cocoa butter in them, that's it, no soy! Enjoy Life makes food free from the top eight alergens, dairy soy gluten blah blah I forgt the rest, oh, nuts too.

Hi juliebove, I replied earlier, but i think I did it wrong! I'll try this again. ( i'm not that computer savy, yet!) I did some research and found out some info. The paskesz brand of chocolate chips are gluten free. Go to www.paskesz.com/baking.html to see a list of items that are. I would never feel comforable with anyone taking my word for it. Also I found out that anything marked kosher for passover is gluten free EXCEPT anything that says contains Matzoh meal or matza ( sp?) meal/ matza Farfel or cake meal. There is a passover chat going on in the gluten free forum, you might want to check out. To order paskesz products, go to www.parkeastkosher.com. They are $3.59 a bag. Kind of expensive compared to at the Jewish market. Also check out www.chocolategelt.com. They sell the chocolate coins. Yummy! Hope this helps!!! Good luck with your little one.

I buy those, and I do make them into chocolates, but it would be nice to find some chocolates made up that had no soy or dairy in them.

I checked, but they don't list the ingredients so I would hesitate to order. Daughter can't have soy and most chocolate contains it.

Thanks!

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
