Craving Chocolate? Here Are Some Delicious Peanut-Free Chocolates Just For You

Do you have a sweet tooth and more specifically a chocolate craving? Those with peanut allergies must be especially careful when indulging their sweet tooth, since many chocolates (even those that don't contain nuts) are processed in facilities that also handle peanuts. Chocolate is not only a popular treat, it has also been proven to have health benefits. Whether you're looking for holiday candy or want to treat yourself to a decadent piece of chocolate, there are nut-free options that are safe for people with peanut allergies.

Barney Butter has a scrumptious Chocolate Almond Butter and Cocoa + Coconut Almond Butter that are a perfect spread for your morning toast or better yet add it to your baking recipe for a delectable pep to your baked goods. This company was voted the #1 Nut Butter Brand for being 100% Peanut-Free by Self Magazine and has an array of delectable almond butters, but if you specifically have a chocolate craving, Barney Butter's Cocoa + Coconut Almond Butter and Chocolate Almond Butter are the way to go.

Avoiding Cross-Contamination Is Crucial

What if you're craving a particular variety of chocolate that you can't find through a peanut-free source? Or perhaps you want to make chocolate fondue or bake brownies, chocolate chip cookies, or any number of other recipes containing chocolate? Baking these items at home is the best way to avoid the cross-contamination that could occur in a bakery, but you'll also need to choose chocolate that is peanut-free. For this reason, plain chocolates (whether dark, milk or white) are the most popular types of nut-free chocolates sold.

Three Delicious Peanut-Free Chocolates To Try

There are several peanut-free chocolate and candy companies. Even if the chocolate does not contain nuts, the rate of cross-contamination is particularly high with chocolates since they are often processed in a facility that also handles peanuts. To be truly peanut-free, the chocolate must be processed on a dedicated line, away from nuts. Here are some peanut-free chocolates for you to try:
