I had ordered some chocolate dessert molds and some chocolate candy molds so that when I went to visit my grandkids we’d have something fun to do. I wanted to show the family that gluten free desserts can be delicious, too. We made chocolate bowls filled with mousse. The gluten free chocolate mousse was from a packaged that we doctored up. And we topped it all off with a chocolate candy. Yum! However, we used too large of a size mold, and it was just way too much chocolate for some of us. Though some of us die-hard chocolate lovers finished every bite. I suggest a little smaller size, though any size would make wonderful gluten free desserts. You can even fill them with fresh fruit. If you do not have a chocolate mold try using small custard cups and top one with another. Enjoy and have fun!Continue reading “Chocolate Bowl Recipe (Gluten-Free) with Chocolate Mousse”
If you are a chocolate and a nut lover like I am, you will appreciate this chocolate bark recipe because it is very heavy in the nuts, making it a more nutritious and high protein choice. The chocolate in this recipe can be adjusted to your liking. I used about 2/3 milk chocolate and 1/3 semi-sweet morsels. You can use Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips to make it gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, soy free, egg free, casein-free, kosher pareve, vegan and artificial-ingredient-free.

I wanted to make gluten free peanut butter cups, but I do not eat peanut butter very often and the Trader Joe’s peanut butter my husband uses is made in a factory shared with wheat. So, I opted to create walnut butter cups instead. First, I created a walnut butter recipe sweetened with agave syrup, making a great peanut butter substitute. I share both recipes with you below. Anything chocolate makes my day! How about you? Continue reading “Gluten Free Walnut Butter Cups”
Whenever we have company my guests really seem to enjoy my Chocolate Almond Brittle, aka English Toffee. I have a lucite See’s Candy container where I store them and everyone believes them to be See’s Candies, and says they are delicious. I then explain it is not See’s but a homemade recipe. It tastes similar to Almond Roca, but I like it much better. Below I explain how to make it successfully. Continue reading “Chocolate Almond Brittle – English Toffee (Gluten Free)”
I was watching “Paula’s Home Cooking” on The Food Network channel the other day, and Paula showed how to make Chocolate Covered Potato Eggs (for Easter). Her recipe had a white filling and inspired this chocolate truffle recipe with walnuts I just created. My favorite See’s Easter egg has a chocolate cream and walnut filling, therefore, this is what I made today. I added cocoa powder and walnuts; substituted stevia and agave syrup for the powdered sugar; and changed its shape into the typical roundtruffle. This is a healthier truffle recipe than most. I dipped some in chocolate and froze them; rolled others in unsweetened cocoa powder; and others in walnuts. My husband found it hard to believe it contained mashed potatoes. Give this recipe a try. It tastes great and is so fun to make!Continue reading “Healthy Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles”
