Yesterday was Cody's actual birthday, and he wanted to take a treat into the classroom to share with everyone.
I was originally going to make Bakerella's Cake Pops. Normally you would buy Wilton's candy melts for the outer layer, but they have a peanut warning on them, so they're out. I found some info where you can combine safe chocolate chips with shortening to replace the candy melts, but I was a little wary of that as I was short on time and didn't have the patience for any messups :) I'll have to eventually give it a try though.
So instead I turned to my newest allergy free cookbook, The Food Allergy Mama's Baking Book: Great Dairy-, Egg-, and Nut-Free Treats for the Whole Family. Cody and I decided on The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie You'll Ever Have recipe. SO GOOD! I used Divvies chocolate chips, and I really prefer them over the Enjoy Life chocolate chips that I have used in the past.
