Gluten-Free Chocolate Recipes for Love + Valentine's Day
How do I love thee, Dear Reader? Let me count the ways.
And if you wouldn't mind indulging me (just a little) let me count them in chocolate- that buttery dark bitter sweetness that coaxes even the no good very bad surliest day to soften its grip.
Consider this my gluten-free chocolate valentine to you.
For mid-afternoon, may I tempt you with a classic offering? These Chocolate Cupcakes are akin to Devil's food cake. And for the evening dessert, how about two cakes? My vegan Mexican Chocolate Cake features a hint of cinnamon. Without a huevo in sight.
Not vegan (and love truffles)? Have I got a cake for you. Slice it thin. It is not for the faint of heart. This dense, rich, holiday-worthy Truffle Cake is pure, butter and cream laden decadence. Closer to candy than cake (hence the name). But hey.
Who am I to judge?
In fact, in Jungian typology I'm a P not a J. Have you ever taken a Meyers-Briggs test? I'm a P. An INFP to be precise- which is hard for an INFP to be, I'm sorry to say. The precise part. P means perceiver. Which means I like to keep things loose. I go with the flow. I leave cupboard doors and plans open. I'm more interested in ideas than gossip. I prefer exploration over critique. I respond to creativity rather than competition. Wisdom rather than rules. I make my own mind up about what I value- based on my interior perceptions and consideration, not public consensus. My most asked question on any given day is, Why?
And I'm serious. I want to know.
