So, I have some candy molds (low melt), dried fondant, eggless royal icing powder, soy margaine, cocoa powder, soy milk and some artificial flavourings.
I should be able to whip up something similar to real chocolate candies, eh?

I have purchased the dark chocolate melts from Wilton. I emailed the company and this was their response.
Dark Chocolate Candy Melts:

Milk - not in product, but present in plant

Egg - not in product or plant

Peanut - not in product but present in plant (but separate area of plant)

Tree Nut - not in product or plant

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wow, Stephanie, I might just try those.
I tried SaskMommyof2's recipe but found it a bit too soft (might just try with less margaine)
I made the fondant and added a package of cherry jello for flavour. It's just flavour, colour, sugar and gelatin so I figured it wouldn't hurt. I whole package for a package of fondant seems just right. :) It is also quite soft so you definately need to dip them in hard chocolate.

Thanks, I ended up just using the decadent chocotale chips and shortening as the margarine I have was too soft. They were deicious and I should know because I ate most of them! :oops:

I was not happy to see the recall on the Wilton's chocolate. Now though I am wondering if it could mean that my son has outgrown his dairy allergy as he ate a pile of it and had no troubles.

It could be that you were lucky and did not buy any of the affected product. If you still have any of the packaging, you could contact Wilton and confirm this. I'm so glad your son was fine!

I checked the lot numbers and they were the same. So I am not sure what to think.

I guess the "may contain" milk is the key point here.
