and allergic to nuts. Come Valentine’s Day,
though, I know which treat we’ll be digging into. The truffles
below are goodies everyone can eat. They’re free of the
major eight allergens, allowing you, your friends, your fam and all
your classmates to indulge in the sweetest day of the year. Enjoy!
Making treats for friends and fam who
have food allergies can be tough, especially when you have to take a
couple of different allergies into consideration. At GL HQ, we’ve
got one chica who’s gluten free and another who’s lactose
Recipe makes about 30 truffles
4 oz. dairy free dark chocolate
¼ cup rice milk
Optional: 1 teaspoon additional
flavoring, like espresso powder or vanilla extract
For coatings: cocoa powder, colored
1. Melt chocolate, rice milk and any
optional flavoring in a double boiler (that’s a heat-proof bowl set
inside a saucepan containing boiling water). Stir until all
ingredients are combined and smooth.
2. Remove bowl from double boiler,
cover and refrigerate until firm.
3. Use a teaspoon to roll chocolate
mixture into small, evenly sized balls.
4. Roll in desired coatings. For
Valentine’s Day, we love heart-shaped sprinkles, pink and red
colored sugar and classic cocoa powder.
Place your truffles in a large
Tupperware box lined with festive cellophane, secure the lid and top
with a note detailing the ingredients—just in case! Refrigerate
when you’re now chowing down.
