Best Gluten Free Dessert Recipe

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

HELP! We are going to our son's end of the year picnic for school and with our last name we are supposed to bring dessert! I LOVE cooking, but am not so great at desserts! Please share your best gluten-free recipe for dessert. I know I can make some pretty basic cookies...chocolate chip, peanut butter, and I can make a mean box mix of cupcakes with icing and brownies...but what else is there that would be kid friendly! Any cookie recipes to share! I would like to bring something that no one can tell is gluten-free!

THANKS!

The cookbook "The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free" has some good stuff in it. My family has happily gobbled up everything I've tried so far and I am the only gluten free one. The Holy Cow Cake would be a great one for a picnic.

I love the Gluten Free Pantry Chocolate Truffle Brownie mix. It makes perfect brownies. Better than any I ever had eating gluten.

I know those aren't from scratch but they're pretty failproof.

If you can get your hands on a box of chocolate chex, these are a great hit:

Note that chocolate chex are NOT peanut free.

Also chex muddy buddies are big around here with ALL the kids (once again, NOT peanut free):

Yes the gluten free pantry brownie mix is my favorite brownie mix of any I have tried! I thought about those...will research the other recipe. I forgot all about chex mixes...may have to watch those as there are a lot of nut allergies at this school.

Keep them coming!!!

THANKS!!!!

How about things that are "normal" and also happen to be gluten free like: ice cream, pudding, jello, fruit salad, chocolate dipped strawberries, etc. Dessert doesn't have to mean a baked good :)

I make quite a few desserts, but my kids and their friends' favorites are always chocolate chip cookies and brownies. For fun I mix different kinds of chocolate chips -- semi-sweet chunks, minis, milk chocolate and white chocolate -- (and plenty of them) all in the same batch of cookies, and put a plain M&M on top of each one before baking.

Brownies are extra good with a thin layer of chocolate frosting and some Heath pieces (you can buy these in the baking aisle next to the chocolate chips).

You can also make Cocoa Pebbles marshmallow treats - fruity or chocolate. These are pretty sticky, so I usually dust the chocolate ones with a little cocoa. Recipe is on the box - just the cereal, marshmallows and butter/margarine.

Chex muddy buddys were my favorite as a kid! Perhaps you could make them with sun butter (sunflower seeds) if peanuts are out.

Betty Crocker has plenty of gluten-free recipes on their website with their mixes or gluten-free Bisquick.

The Grasshopper Brownies are very good.
