You can really taste the hazelnut flour in these rich and decadent chocolate hazelnut cupcakes. Great served plain, but once you add the creamy Nutella frosting (recipe below) you will NOT be able to stop at one! I used to make the glutenous version of these almost every year for Geoff for Valentine’s Day. He LOVED them. So when I found hazelnut flour in the grocery store the other day, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it – convert his old favorite to gluten free. I figured it’d be good, but it turned out even better than I expected! We actually like the gluten free version better. The hazelnut flour gives the cakes a more complex flavour and better texture.

I know, I know. These look more like a Peanut Butter Cup than a Kit Kat Bar but without a proper chocolate mold this was what we came up with! These gluten free Kit Kat “Bars” taste like the real thing. The secret is getting the chocolate to filling ratio just right! And they aren’t that difficult to make. No oven required – just a blender and a microwave. We posted this recipe last Christmas but thought we’d post it again for the upcoming Halloween Season. These would be great treats for your ghosts and goblins at any gf halloween parties!

The next time you feel like chocolate cake – and let’s face it, there WILL be a next time – try this one. Made with 3/4 of a cup of cocoa, it is chocolatey to the point of decadence, and because it’s made with boiling water, it’s also really, really moist. One of those rare gluten free baked items that actually improves with age, this cake will be even better tomorrow, which is a good thing because the recipe makes one big ol’ sheet cake. For those of you who are better at cake decorating than I am (which will be most of you!) this would make a great decorated layer cake.
I have served this to unsuspecting guests who have had no idea that it was gluten free!
With a texture that’s beyond fudgy, these flourless gluten free brownies have just a hint of sweetness and a whole lot of dark chocolate goodness. Just to be extra decadent, we coat them with a not-too-sweet cream cheese and Nutella icing. The brownies are really good, but the combination with the frosting is to die for!A very kind neighbour gave us this brownie recipe. Thanks Christine!

Been missing Ferrero Rocher since you went gluten free? Well Geoff has. It used to be one of his holiday favorites, so this year we decided to try to make some that were gluten free. The results were incredible – although perhaps not as pretty as those little gold and silver foil-wrapped balls of chocolate! We did, however, feed them to some unsuspecting gluten eaters who all said they liked these even better than the original. In fact, they ordered requested we make more! If you like nutella and chocolate then this is the recipe for you!
