My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free Hot Chocolate Mix

I haven't been able to find a prepackaged safe hot chocolate. Jazlyn has been drinking warmed soy milk with chocolate syrup stirred in. It's still chocolate and warm, but not the same. I have a recipe for a hot chocolate that needs cooked on the stove, but I wanted something that was fast and easy to prepare any time. This is perfect because you make a big batch with just 3 ingredients then it's available when you want it.

Hot Chocolate Mix

3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa powder
3 tsp salt

Thoroughly combined all of the ingredients then store in a tightly sealed container.

To serve - stir 2 tbsp of the mixture into 1 cup of hot soy milk.
*  For variety, you can stir in a few drops of vanilla, mint or other extracts. You can also top with mini marshmallows or prepared safe whipped topping.
