So we made these sweet Vegan Peppermint Bark Cupcakes last week and suddenly all we could think about was chocolate. CHOC-O-LATE. At night. In the shower. On the bus. In downward dog. Chocolate. Chocolate. CHOCOLATE.
Something had to be done. So we hit up some of our FAVORITE gluten-free recipe blogs, and we made this sinful (except not-at-all sinful because it's gluten free – yah!) list of our favorite gluten free chocolate recipes.
We tried every single one – for which we are not ashamed! So you know they're more than good. They're "miss-it-immediately-after-you-swallow-the-last-bite" kinda good.
Start scrolling, clicking, and salivating. Then get into the kitchen, put on Bowie's Let's Dance, and mix that chocolate batter, baby! Who knew being gluten-free could be so gluttonous?
