Allergy Moms are Organized

Nathan's teacher told me that the class will be decorating Christmas cookies in class and asked if I could bring something in for Nathan.

Nathan said he wanted to decorate a cupcake instead of a cookie but he needs all his own items. He can't share sprinkles, frosting or anything, etc. I decided to make Nathan his own decorating kit to take to school. I wish I had taken a picture before he took it but when he brought it home the teacher sent me a note.

It said: Thank you so much for sending this. It worked out perfectly! You are so organized!

Peppermint Fudge

Nathan and I were watching my favorite cooking show on TV, The Pioneer Woman. While the show is not allergy friendly, I do love to watch.

The Pioneer Woman was making a Peppermint Fudge on the show and Nathan said to me "Oh mom that looks so good!" This meant I needed to get creative and make a Peppermint Fudge for him that is allergy free.

This is what I cam up with and it was so easy and he loved it.

Peppermint Fudge

1/2c Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
2T Soymilk
Crushed Candy Canes

After I melted the chocolate in the microwave, I mixed in the soymilk. Then I added some crushed candy canes to the top. I spread it out on wax paper let cool in the fridge.

He loved them!
