    Challenger's Statement:

    I was so excited to see candy as the theme for this contest! I took a batch of these to a recent party, where no one knew they were allergy-friendly, and they were a huge hit. I got a number of requests for *where did you buy those?* People seemed to really enjoy the fact that the cherries inside were dry, not wet, but were still sweet.

  • Substitutions  
  • To avoid soy, select chips without soy lecithin. Enjoy Life Foods makes chocolate chips that are free of soy lecithin.

    Use milk, soy, peanut, tree nut, corn free ingredients as needed.
