Sometimes companies send me things to review. (I accept gladly, in case you were wondering, but I NEVER guarantee a positive review.) When I got home from California on Tuesday there was a box of candy waiting on me from Unreal Candy Company. Folks. This is the good stuff. Mother tested and daughter approved.
They have created a candy that you can feel good about passing out to kids for Halloween. No artificial blah blah, no corn syrups, no preservatives and no GMO ingredients. Bam! Made with Gluten Free ingredients (but made on wheaty equipment). And best of all, the company was started by a parent and his kid who checked out the back of a regular ole candy and saw all the junk in it and embarked on a mission to make a better for you Snickers bar. Their candies mimic Peanut M&M’s, Mars, etc, and I dare say in several cases, they are way better. I wasn’t thrilled with peanut butter cups but Unreal 8 knocked our socks off!
Check their website for a store near you or you can grab a bag at Target when you’re shopping Tricks or Treats.
and whipped it up with eggs and yogurt (instead of the oil it called for). I put some raspberry jam between the layers and covered it with a chocolate ganache made with 60% Ghiradelli chips and whipping cream. The cake part had a texture like chocolate cake and marshmallows had a baby, but pretty awesome for gluten free! I’ll probably just use the oil next time to see how it changes the texture. Anyway, here it is:
My daughter wanted a second slice, and as picky as she is, that is saying a lot! Who knows, maybe I’ll have a gluten free kid soon.
For my nongluten free readers, don’t panic! I’m not just blogging gluten free now. Stay posted!
