Dairy free chocolate haystacks

I love to bake. I always imagined I would bake with my kids in the same way my mom baked with me. However when we confirmed in September, 2015 that our son was alergic to dairy and raw eggs and sensitive to nuts my baking took a back seat to learning how to feed my child. 

Yesterday I revamped one of my favourite simple no bake cookie recipes and am happy to report they are still delicious.

Elijah had a three hour nap yesterday so even after I had watched a movie, cleaned out the truck and showered, I still had time to put together these lovelies.
