Gluten-free Candy

I’ve heard from a few folks lately and there is some confusion as to which candies are gluten-free. Here is a website I found with information on gluten-free candy and links to the companies who make them. It’s good information to use when you’re at the store and wondering what is safe to buy.

Strawberry Shortcake

1 box Betty Crocker Gluten-free Yellow Cake Mix
1 box Jello Vanilla Pudding

2 tsp vanilla
1 stick softened butter
3 eggs
1 box of fresh strawberries
cool whip or whipped cream

In a medium bowl, mix the cake mix, dry pudding mix, milk, vanilla, butter and eggs. Beat well. Bake in a 9-inch round pan for about 40 minutes. Wash and slice strawberries. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar and stir. Refrigerate to let the strawberries get juicy. Serve strawberries and whipped cream over cake.
