I love parties and I love party food, but enough already. A new facet (for me) to the challenge of making food for a crowd is the increasing number of friends and family with food allergies or restrictions.
Although this recipe wouldn't be considered clean for the strictest vegans, it's gluten-free and, really, mostly vegan.
These are like Muddy Buddies, but they don't have peanut butter in them (peanut allergies for some folks), so I call them:
- Rice Chex
- Corn Chex
- candied pineapple, cut or broken in little bits
- chocolate chips
- walnuts - omit, in case of walnut allergies
- pecans - omit, in case of pecan allergies
- white (vanilla) chocolate bark candy squares
- powdered sugar
If you want to get fatal about it, of course, just pulverize some of the nuts your character (you know I'm talking about characters in stories, right?) is allergic to and mix the powder in with the sugar.
