Hello Dollies are 100% decadent. The best part, they are a super easy recipe that is sweet, full of wonderful surprises, and easily adaptable to your family’s food allergy needs. These are nut-free and we’ve provided a dairy free option too.
Hello Dollies are made of delicious layers one sweeter than the next.
Start with a thick graham cracker crumb base, add chocolate, raisins, dried cranberries, if you want to go crazy add white chocolate chips, cover with condensed milk, and bake until caramelised.
That’s all. Can you feel the sugar coma already!
Making Allergy-Friendly Hello Dollies
We like to bake our own graham crackers for the base to make sure they are 100% allergen-free. After you make the crackers, simply crush them in a big freezer bag and crumble any remaining larger bits with your hands.
If you don’t like raisins, or dried cranberries, or chocolate (gasp), feel free to switch up your add-ins. We do suggest keeping in the chocolate for the melted quality they lend to the bars.
Many recipes online call for coconut or nuts. If you are looking to add a crunch pretzels make a wonderful alternative to pecans or almonds. These can also be made dairy-free using coconut condensed milk and vegan butter.
You seriously only need a tiny piece because they are packed with flavour in the most delightful way!
