Make Your Own Gluten-Free Easter Candy!

Thursday April 17, 2014

Give candy. Get candy. Hide candy. Find candy. Candy. CANDY!

Solid Chocolate Easter Egg Recipe

Easter was one of my favorite holidays as a child, second only to Halloween on a childhood scale of candy satiety. Today as a sensible grown-up and health-oriented to boot, the thought of giving a child commercial Easter candy full of genetically modified high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated soybean oil just doesn't work for me. These unhealthy ingredients permeate our daily diets as is.

That's why I am so excited to share some terrific homemade Easter candy recipes this week. They come from our brilliant Candy Expert, Elizabeth LaBau. Try Elizabeth's amazing solid chocolate Easter egg recipe and marshmallow chicks just to name a few of the classic Easter candy recipes in this collection.

Be sure to use gluten-free ingredients, like gluten-free graham crackers in Elizabeth's crunchy peanut butter Easter egg recipe. And if cooking isn't for you, check out our Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity Expert's latest safe candy list.

Giant Gluten-Free Lemon Ginger Crisp Cookies

Gluten-Free Giant Lemon Ginger Crisp Cookies Image Teri GrussAs I watched my buttery gluten-free cookie dough, flecked with freshly grated lemon zest and minced crystallized ginger spread out on the cookie sheet to thin, very thin enormous circles, I started thinking, disaster! Not unusual in the world of gluten-free bakers, but always disappointing for sure.

This gluten-free recipe story has a happy ending. Even my gluten-eaters raved about these big, bright chewy good gluten-free cookies.

Gluten-Free Easter Salad Recipes

Gluten Free Red Cabbage Cole Slaw with Sesame Oil Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe Image

Whether you're planning a fresh leafy green salad, a colorful fruit salad or a perennial favorite potato salad for your Easter brunch or dinner, you'll find lots of recipe ideas in our collection of gluten-free salad recipes. Naturally gluten-free and super healthy, salads can be one of the most memorable and energizing parts of your Easter menu. Our red cabbage coleslaw with homemade sesame vinaigrette dressing is at least as intensely colorful as a basket of Easter eggs!

Store-bought dressings require diligent label reading and can be an obstacle for gluten-free diets. I've never seen this as a particular problem because homemade gluten-free salad dressings are truly fast and easy creations and taste so much beer than commercial products.

And when you make your own salad dressings you can use delicious oils like fruity olive oil or more exotic culinary oils like avocado, almond, walnut and toasted sesame oil, all which can add amazing flavor and nutritional value to salads, and all are healthier than commercial dressings made with GMO oils like soy oil.
