This Easter, make your own Chocolate Covered Bunnies and not have to worry about cross contamination of peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy or gluten. This bunnies are free of the top 8 food allergens and made with Enjoy Life Chocolate.
Every parent of a child with food allergies at one time or another, has felt bad for their child at holidays. Each holiday has its own theme of candies and traditions. Easter has become such a large celebration with all the egg hunts, chocolate bunnies and tradition of dyeing eggs.
What do you do when your child can’t participate in none of these events?
These chocolate bunnies are made of gluten free Rice Krispies made with marshmallows and non hydrogenated palm shortening. After the bunnies were born, I covered them with a layer of melted chocolate from Enjoy Life brand which is free of the top 8 food allergens.
