KFA Iron Chef Valentine's Battle 2008: Desserts and Candies
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.
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.
