Mint Chocolate Buttercream Frosting or Chocolate Frosting (Swiss Meringue)

Gluten Free Cupcakes with Chocolate Mint Buttercream Frosting

Often, chocolate buttercream just doesn’t taste chocolatey enough. This Swiss meringue buttercream contains the perfect balance of chocolate and slightly minty flavor. So many times recipes turn out too minty, which drowns out the chocolate flavor. Not here! Just imagine a chocolate milkshake with a little peppermint. That’s exactly what this frosting tastes like. I’ve never been a mint fan, but this one I can eat straight from the mixing bowl. It’s that good!

Gluten Free Brioche Rolls – Buns

Gluten Free Brioche Rolls

When you want to serve the very best, this no-fail recipe for gluten free brioche rolls is the key. The dough not only doubles in size during the rising period but lifts up quickly and greatly as it expands in the oven. And it does not deflate upon cooling. There is no need for them to cool. Unlike most gluten free dough, you don’t have to wait until these rolls cool to serve them as they are not gummy whatsoever. The inner dough is tender, fluffy, and buttery. Its thin crust is slightly crispy on the sides and pliable on the top, just like traditional brioche buns. I dare even gluten-eaters to tell the difference. These gluten free brioche rolls are perfection!

Crunchy Gluten Free Fudge Marshmallow Cookies – Pinwheels

Gluten Free Fudge Marshmallow Cookies

Several manufacturers make similar traditional cookies like Signature Select, Great Value, and Nabisco calls theirs “Pinwheels”. This gluten free fudge marshmallow cookies recipe is comprised of a crunchy chocolate cookie, topped with marshmallows, and covered in chocolate. I prefer these cookies over See’s Candies marshmallow treats, which says a lot because those contain caramel. The cookie is the key to this recipe! However, many others appreciate the process that I created to adhere the marshmallows to the cookies. Enjoy!

Check out their texture at Gluten Free Fudge Cookie Video.

It makes a wonderful stuffing.
