Quick Dairy Free Chocolates For Mother’s Day

Friday, March 25th, 2011

My two year old and I decided to play in the kitchen today so we made some dairy free chocolates for nanny. These are quick enough to make to hold a toddlers attention!

First we made dairy free white chocolate pennies. We topped half with Hundreds and thousands and half with dairy free plain chocolate chips.

We then made dairy free white chocolate cornflake bites.

To make 14 chocolate pennies

100g dairy free white chocolate
Dr Oetker Hundreds and Thousands (these are not gluten free)
Plamil dairy free chocolate chips

Place a piece of baking parchment onto a baking tray.

Break up the white chocolate into a bowl. Melt on a low heat in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

Place teaspoon full amounts onto the baking tray. Using the back of the spoon, shape into flat discs.

Sprinkle Hundreds and thousands over the top of half the discs until completely covered. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the other half.

Leave to set before tipping the tray to let the excess topping roll off.

12 white chocolate cornflake bites

65g dairy free white chocolate
25g cornflakes (can use gluten free cornflakes)
30g dried cranberries

Place a piece of baking parchment onto a baking tray.

Break up the white chocolate into a bowl. Melt on a low heat in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

Crush the cornflakes into smaller flakes – not too small. Stir into the chocolate, then stir in the dried cranberries.

Use a teaspoon to place small amounts onto the baking tray. Leave to set.

Put the chocolates into little cellophane bags tied with ribbon. We are going to buy a nice tin for our chocolates.

The new Lactofree adverts made me chuckle!

I recently saw an advert for Lactofree milk on tv which made me laugh.

I had been wondering if people with a lactose intolerance could actually drink this.  I’ll buy some on my next shopping trip and let you know what I think.
