Chocolate Almond Brittle – English Toffee (Gluten Free)

Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Brittle

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)”

Healthy Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles

Gluten Free Mashed Potato Chocolate Ganache Truffles

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 round truffle. 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”

It’s my hubby’s birthday, and he has requested a gluten free cheesecake. His favorite desserts are chocolate; therefore, I topped it with a chocolate topping (ganache), but it is optional. A cheesecake with a chocolate topping does not need to be very sweet. So, I cut back on the sugar in this cheesecake recipe. My guests love it!
