Dairy Free Easter Eggs

This time of year has always been hard for our allergy boys. Chocolate Eggs and treats are on display in every supermarket you go into and they are all off-limits to the boys. Something a chocoholic like me finds too terrible to imagine!

In the past I have resorted to making our own Easter eggs for them using their chocolate and a mould I bought in Lakeland but it's not the same as getting one all prettily boxed up like your brothers.

A couple of years ago Kinnerton brought out their dairy & gluten free egg, which was great, but the chocolate is really dark, and just too rich for a little boy.

Imagine my delight this year to discover that there was not just this egg for sale in our local Sainsburys, but another two! One of these was the store's own-brand free from egg and the other was this Celtic Chocolates one.

Calum is a huge fan of the Celtic Chocolates Caramels and so was over the moon to get an egg made by the same company, and one that included the caramels.

Although it's not quite Easter yet, they just had to test it out to see if the egg was as good as the chocolates.

The answer was a resounding 'Yes' and now I need to stock up on some more in time for Easter!
