It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Christmastime is so fun and full of lots of my favorite things.  With the kids I’ve been doing crafts, Christmas stories, and of course baking and eating lots of yummy holiday treats.  It was time for a new recipe on the blog, and what better a recipe than one that can be made pretty quickly and looks great going to a Christmas party.

This recipe is dairy free, egg free, peanut free, tree nut free, and gluten free!  This recipe uses one of my all time allergy-friendly products, SunButter.  Seriously, how can one have fun desserts without SunButter?!  If you prefer a different nut or seed butter to suit your dietary needs, then it can easily be done.  You can also use your chocolate chips, and I used Enjoy Life because it’s the only kind I buy.

I melted my chocolate using a homemade double boiler.  See this tutorial for the how-to on melting chocolate in your own homemade double boiler.  All you’ll need is a glass or metal bowl and a medium size saucepan.

  4. Using your hands or a small cookie scooper, mold SunButter mixture into bite size balls, approximately 1-1½ inches.  Set aside. 
  5. Add oil and chocolate to your homemade double boiler. Melt your chocolate until very smooth.
  6. One by one, dip the SunButter balls into the melted chocolate, making sure to coat evenly while letting excess chocolate drip off into bowl.

  8. Once you have coated them all in chocolate, put them into the refrigerator (uncovered) for about 25 minutes to set the chocolate.
  9. Store in refrigerator.
  10. Take out of refrigerator about an hour before serving to bring them to room temperature.

The kids can easily help make these SunButter Marshmallow Truffles.  Most kids will have fun rolling the “dough” into balls.  Have fun with this recipe and make the toppings festive!

Green Bean Casserole (Dairy free, Egg free, Soy free, Gluten free, Vegan)

Thanksgiving is just one week away!  I love Thanksgiving and all of the family time with traditional favorite dishes crowding the table.  Something I haven’t yet made for Superman was Green Bean Casserole, so this year I’m adding it to my list of allergy-friendly holiday favorites!  This dish usually has cream of mushroom soup as it’s base, but making an easy “gravy” is a great substitute for the soup (and much healthier!)  If you’ve never made a gravy before, don’t sweat it.  Just follow the directions and you should be good to go.

I topped this recipe with pan toasted onions and crackers to make it easily gluten free.  If you’re not following a wheat & gluten free diet, then store bought french fried onions may work for your family.  Please read labels carefully to assure that they are safe.

My family really enjoyed taste testing this recipe, and I hope it finds a place on your holiday table.
