Life does not have to end of your diet is on an allergy protocol.  There are so many ways to adapt your favorite recipes!  Here is one of my favorites – a version of Kellogg’s Scotcheroos modified to be gluten free, vegan, no peanuts, and minimal sugar.  More, please!

Yes, I know you are skeptical.  One of my co-workers (who will remain nameless to protect the innocent) literally licked the wrapper when I brought in a batch to work.  They are a tough crowd, and this treat got many thumbs up!  The original recipe calls for corn syrup.  Why on earth does any dessert need corn syrup these days?  This modified version is sweet enough without any added sugar.  The honey and SunButter create a butterscotch-esque taste that is far healthier!

If you are an allergy mom – this recipe will be the hit of all future parties.  You need not have any fear – your child will have a safe treat to eat, and the other kids won’t notice the difference and will love them just as much (if not more) than traditional Scotcheroos.

Keep in mind, this is made with “real” chocolate, which has a little more of a bitter taste than the traditional milk and sugar-filled chocolate you are used to.  If you want to make this with traditional semi-sweet chocolate chips out of that infamous yellow bag and you don’t have any restrictions, by all means, go for it.  Stepson calls it “adult chocolate” as in… kids like it sweeter, but this is the chocolate that adults like.  I love his way of explaining it.
