Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips Snack Packs ***Giveaway***

Have you heard the exciting news?  There's a new allergy-friendly treat in town, and although it's small in size, it's a BIG deal. 

Enjoy Life has just introduced their new single-serving snack packs of dairy free and nut free chocolate chips (actually free of the top 8 allergens)! These cute snack packs are perfect sizes to pop in lunchboxes, in special snack boxes for school, or in backpacks and purses. They're also a wonderful allergy-friendly option for HALLOWEEN!  

We are SO excited to hand out chocolate chip snack packs as part of our allergy-friendly treats this Halloween. Of course we are also going to display our teal pumpkins and offer non-food treats! I mentioned on Instagram that painting teal pumpkins has become an annual tradition in our house now. I hope you've found some fun with the Teal Pumpkin Project too.

How can you use these fun snack packs in other ways?

Well, I am also Homeroom Mom at Little Guy's school (which means I get to plan their class celebrations - so helpful for food allergy reasons!). I plan to use the snack packs as class treats to fill up these mini pumpkins...along with festive pencils and notebooks for each kiddo too.

Have you had both kinds of Enjoy Life chocolate chips in these snack packs? The dark chocolate are a little bigger and have more of a pure chocolate/cacao taste (less sweet).  The semi-sweet mini chips are just that...sweet and mini! My kids like both, but slightly prefer the semi-sweet mini chips. I prefer both :)

Chocolate Cookie SunButter Ice Cream Cupcakes and *Special Giveaway*

I'm excited to share a fun and delicious SunButter recipe with you today. These Chocolate Cookie SunButter Ice Cream Cupcakes are the perfect fun treat for a hot summer's day...like a 4th of July picnic dessert maybe? But what's even better?  They're a dairy free, nut free and allergy friendly dessert of course! 

Also, be sure to read to the bottom of this post for an awesome SunButter giveaway!

These ice cream cupcakes so easy peasy to make because this is a no bake recipe. NOT having to turn on the oven for a delicious summertime dessert is great news, right?

Plus, you can customize them any way you want. You can use your favorite ice cream flavor or frozen whipped topping.  Just make sure it's dairy and nut free if you're dealing with food allergies.

You can eat it with a fork....

Or your hands! Doesn't this look yummy?  Layers of tasty goodness, ya know?

Chocolate SunButter Ice Cream Cupcakes
Makes 12 ice cream cupcakes.

Cookie crust:
14 crushed Oreos (Or try your favorite crunchy chocolate cookie)
4 Tbsp melted dairy free butter (I used Earth Balance)

SunButter filling:
3/4 cup SunButter (I used Natural flavor)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 Tbsp soft dairy free butter (again, Early Balance)

Ice cream:
3 cups dairy free ice cream or frozen whipped topping (I used SoDelicious)

1. Line a cupcake pan with foil cupcake wrappers. Include the paper wrappers if they come in the foil. This makes it easier to peel off when the cupcake is frozen.

2. Crush Oreos in food processor. Combine with melted dairy-free butter.

3. Firmly press 1 Tbsp of Oreo mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner.

4. Beat SunButter, powdered sugar and dairy-free butter with electric mixer until combined. Spread 1 heaping Tbsp of SunButter mixture in each cupcake liner as next layer.

5. Scoop 1/4 cup of slightly soft dairy-free ice cream into each cupcake liner and smooth on top.  The cupcake should be filled to the top of the cupcake liner.

6. Top with your favorites. We like crushed Oreos, Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, or India Tree Sprinkles.

I'm sure you love SunButter as much as we do. I mean, it's one of Little Guy's main sources of protein due to his food allergies. If you depend on it as much as we do I'm sure you're going to love this giveaway. One lucky reader will win a CASE of SunButter. That's 6 jars, 16 oz. each, and you can choose your favorite flavor! Enter here today.
