These are the brand names of the products I used (see picture). The Enjoy Life dark chocolate morsels are dairy, nut and soy free. If you want the cookies to be gluten free (because oatmeal may have some gluten) then substitute Rice Krispies cereal as a suggestion. Also coconut can be added if so desired.
The finished product... off to the freezer it goes. Holiday cooking is sooo much fun! Hope you enjoy the dairy free almost totally gluten free cookie recipe.
When the Nytemare was out of site, Scarlet went back to check on Hungry to see what the King had in mind for the second Nytemare. Hungry and the King were still talking when Scarlet heard the young Dragon ask, "Can I take my pillow?"
"I am sure we can make some arrangements. This Nytemare will guide you on your the journey. We will meet again young Dragon," answers the King as he turns to Scarlet. “Hungry has decided to stay with us for a time. This Nytemare is to lead him to his teacher. Here is the message,” says the Shadow King as he hands Scarlet a scroll and then walks away towards the castle.
“Well, young Dragon, I hope we have enough Moon Flowers. Between you and the Nytemares it might be a close thing,” Scarlet says with a twinkle in his eyes. Hungry starts to say something, then closes his mouth and blushes. “Never seen a Dragon blush before,” laughs the farrier. “Come’on. You can help me get this Nytemare ready for the journey because I think you both are in for a long walk.”
"Can we take some Moon Flowers?" Hungry asks as he, Scarlet, and the Nytemare head to the stables, "and can I see the Nytemare's shoes?"
"You said you were a farrier to the King. What is that?" Hungry asks.
"I take care of the Nytemares. Clean the stables, feed them, and fix their shoes," Scarlet tells the young Dragon.
"Nytemares wear shoes?" Hungry asks with a small amount of skepticism. "No one has ever mentioned that."
Scarlet only chuckles and tells him that he will see shortly.
As if a Dragon was a perfectly natural thing to be included in the meeting, the King looks at Hungry and says, "Welcome to the Shadow's Realm, Hungry. We need to talk as soon as I dispatch my messages." With that, the King takes Meen aside and sends the Pyksee on her way while Scarlet finds two Nytemares. When Scarlet returns with Nytemares in tow, Hungry quietly asks Scarlet what is the King going to do with them.
"The Nytemares are the King's messengers. They can travel far and fast. They deliver messages to whomever the King wishes. Whether they are awake or asleep or even want the message", Scarlet mumbles. Looking to make sure that the King is not close enough to hear, Scarlet continues in a quieter voice, "and I include a touch of hope with each one. Every message delivered, no matter how good or bad, always needs to include a ray of hope."
"The first Nytemare is delivering a message to the Dowager Griselda, informing her that you might be staying here for a while. You are a young Wish Dragon and are untrained. You will soon have the power to grant wishes and without training, you may cause as many problems as your fore bearers did. I would like you to stay here while you are learning. I have an excellent teacher for you to meet. If you will you stay, the second Nytemare is to take you to your teacher. Will you stay?"
"Can I take my pillow?" asks Hungry.
"I am sure we can make some arrangements. Scarlet will prepare you and this Nytemare for the journey. We will meet again young Dragon."
