More and more people are looking for great taste in a gluten-free version, and we’ve accomplished it with this recipe. It’s part of our Chocolate Trends report that says we want our chocolate regardless of our dietary needs!

This recipe was inspired by one found in the book by Diane Mott Davidson, "Sticks and Scones." Considered comfort food in it's original form, we hope she won't mind us making them so that those with gluten intolerance can be comforted as well!
