While recently on vacation in Cabo, I tasted the best flan I have ever had!

This makes the richest and most decadent chocolate mousse you’ll ever have. It reminds me of what five-star restaurants serve. Don’t skimp on perfection. Use high-quality chocolate. Serve alone, top with whipped cream, or use as a filling for my upcoming Crunchy Gluten Free Chocolate Mousse Pie recipe.

I wouldn’t advise poking them with a toothpick, but they are fairly easy. Just be sure to beat those egg whites, as instructed.

While not all ready-made or boxed pudding brands are gluten free, you can always use naturally gluten free ingredients to make them from scratch. Instead of making gluten free pudding, which contains flour, I prefer custard. There isn’t any floury taste or texture in custard because it does not contain flour.
