J had his first real chocolate experience today and he loved it! We made dairy free chocolate krispie cakes together and it was such and easy and fun thing to do if you don’t fancy getting all the things together for some proper baking.
There is lots of great dairy free chocolate out there. We love Plamil and Kinnerton because they are also made in a nut free facility. Lots of good quality dark chocolate – like Green and Blacks – is dairy free but always check the ingredients as some of the cheaper brands are not. Many of them also carry a ‘may contain’ warning so it will depend how sensitive your child might be or what you are comfortable with.
I gave J some of the Green and Blacks dairy free chocolate to try but it is so bitter he turned his nose up at it! However, once it was mixed with a little golden syrup to sweeten it up he couldn’t get enough of it! And he thought mixing – and obviosuly eating – the dairy free krispie cakes was just great fun.
J gets up really early so we often start baking before the rest of the world is awake. So at 6.30am we made dairy free chocolate krispie cakes. A simple classic that are great for snacks or parties.
