Deliciously Delectable Peanut-Free Desserts

Those with peanut allergies often find that they are unable to enjoy dessert since there's always the constant worry that it has been baked with peanuts. Peanut products find their way into a wide variety of treats – from candy to brownies to cookies and more. Whether there's an upcoming celebration that calls for dessert, or you're simply looking to satisfy your sweet tooth without risking an allergic reaction, you may be wondering how to find peanut-free desserts.

This can be trickier than it sounds since even products that do not themselves contain nuts as an ingredient may be baked with products that do. To avoid cross-contamination, stick to nut-free bakeries and packaged goods that are made using dedicated nut-free equipment, such as Enjoy Life Foods delicious cookies. This means that you don't have to avoid baked desserts found on grocery store shelves. If there is a peanut-free bakery in your city, this is a great place to find peanut-free desserts, whether you're craving cupcakes, brownies, or any other baked good.

There are trustworthy cookie, chocolate, and candy companies that make delicious peanut-free desserts. For yummy peanut-free cookies, Enjoy Life Foods prides itself on baking their cookies in a peanut-free and nut-free facility. There is something for everyone with options like gingerbread spice, double chocolate, sugar crisp, and vanilla honey graham cookies.

There are so many candy options that are peanut-free, including Skittles, Red Vines licorice, Tootsie Rolls, and Hershey Kisses.


And if you're in the mood for chocolate, try Vermont Nut-Free Chocolates, Pascha Organic, and Amore Di Mona.

Making desserts at home is a great way to avoid allergens. Look for peanut-free cake mixes, frosting, and other ingredients. One popular brand of peanut-free cake mix is Cherrybrook Kitchen, which is available at Whole Foods and online. Some varieties made by major brands are also peanut-free. Check the label of boxed mixes from Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, and Pillsbury to see if they have been processed in a facility that also handles peanuts.
