Irish Potato Rolling


I spent Saturday morning hand rolling Irish Potato(candy) with my family at the Ancient Order Of Hibernians in Bridesburg, Philadelphia. It was a lot of fun. The AOH sells boxes of the potatoes as a fundraiser.

My family marches in the Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day Parade every year with the AOH 87. You are not allowed to March unless you help roll potatoes:-) Below is the finished product 🙂


Gluten Free Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Sticks


I made these on Sunday.  They are homemade Chocolate dipped Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks made with Glutino GF Pretzel Sticks & Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. They are FREE of Dairy, Eggs, Nuts, Wheat & Gluten.

They are easy, delicious and perfect to take to parties. It only took me about 20 minutes to make them.


Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks – These pretzel sticks are also Dairy Free, Egg Free, Nut Free but do have Soy in them.  There’s about 120 calories and 33 pretzels in a serving.

Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips – Gluten Free, Soy free, Diary free, Egg free & Nut free.  There’s about 75 calories in a serving. A serving is a tablespoon full of chips. There’s about 19 servings in a bag. I only used 1/4 of the bag.

I melted the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips for about three minutes in the microwave and stirred.

I dipped the pretzel sticks into the chocolate and laid them out on a cookie sheet. Once the sheet was full I put it in the refrigerator for about 1/2 hour to harden the chocolate. That easy.

I think I am going to try make some haystacks with dried cranberries and pretzels and next time. 

No one would ever know they are allergy friendly:-)
