Chocolate Crinkle Cookies {dairy, egg, soy + gluten free}

I have seen photos of Chocolate Crinkle Cookies floating around the internet the past few weeks and I love how beautiful they look. I assumed there had to be some elaborate trick to making them look so pretty, but once I began reading about them, they are actually super simple! The powdered sugar coating adds a hint of sweetness which transforms the flavor of your ordinary chocolate cookies.

You can really use just about any chocolate cookie recipe. I love making my Chocolate Brownie Cookies. In a pinch, I have also used Immaculate Baking Company's Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough, which I typically keep in my freezer for last minute cookie cravings (mostly for safe school treats quickly, actually). This dough contains eggs and soy. They have a warning on the label regarding the company's manufacturing processes due to being made in a facility that processes other allergens as well. We typically avoid foods/products made in a facility where milk is used, but there are a few companies who label well and are forthcoming with their processes that I do feel comfortable with them.

Peppermint Bark Puppy Chow {gluten free, vegan + nut free}

Puppy Chow (or Muddy Buddies) has always been a favorite treat in our family. I like to mix up the flavors for special occasions or holidays. Traditionally, Puppy Chow is made with peanut butter, but I think it works just fine and tastes great with just a chocolate coating.

Since I found Premium Chocolatiers Milkless Polar Dream dairy-free white chocolate bars, I knew I wanted to make a peppermint bark version of puppy chow. Perfectly sweet and crunchy, the minty mixture of dark chocolate and white chocolate with peppermint is amazing!

Spinach Artichoke Dip {gluten free + vegan}

I have always been a fan of spinach artichoke dip. Warm, gooey and cheesy, it is a delicious appetizer or perfect compliment to grilled or baked chicken. I have enjoyed the traditional version since my son's milk allergy diagnosis, but have anxiety any time I eat something that contains his allergen. Plus, I recently decided to cut dairy out of my diet again, so this dairy-free version is a fantastic substitute.

Some of my favorite, go-to brands make an appearance in the recipe too: So Delicious Dairy Free (culinary coconut milk), Go Veggie Foods (vegan Parmesan style topping), and Just Mayo (egg-free mayonnaise). If you have a favorite dairy-free cheese alternative that does not contain soy, feel free to replace the Parmesan with what works for you.
