One of the main attractions at our recent wedding were these homemade Gluten Free Chocolate Caramels, made by Jesse! Yes, I’ve taken over my wife’s blog for the day to bring you one of my favourite recipes.
Around 2 years ago, I went on a quest to find the perfect caramels, and eventually found them in this tasty and simple recipe. I affectionally call them “crack caramels”, as everybody who tries them immediately wants to know where they can find more and asks you when the next batch is coming at every opportunity. This recipe makes around 40–50 of these yummy sweets, so make sure you have some family or friends to share them with.
Growing up my mum made this chocolate and peppermint slice she called Peppermint Log and ever since I have loved peppermint chocolate. The slice is normally made with Arnott’s Chocolate Ripple biscuits, so being on a gluten free diet for the over 10 years meant no peppermint log for me.
So I decided to rectify the situation and made my a gluten free version of the slice which turned out perfectly. If you like chocolate and peppermint you will love this recipe, but I will warn you it’s addictive…
Now that I’ve been back home just over a month and wishing I could still be on my honeymoon (or any holiday for that matter), I thought it would be a nice treat to make some chocolate cookies with these yummy peanut butter chips.
Sunday night: armed with this Gluten Free Maple Pecan Pie, Jesse and I were on route to our friend’s for dinner. Then halfway down the road we suddenly realised our dessert was at home on the kitchen bench. Agh!
Luckily all was not lost and this Maple Pecan Pie became Monday night’s dessert. I also sent a photograph of the pie to prove to our friends that our dessert was real.
The recipe is so simple and the pie tasted so good that I’ve just polished off a second piece. Hope you like it too.
Today I wanted to share these Gluten Free Anzac Biscuits with you. They’re the first thing I have baked since arriving home from my wedding and honeymoon! It’s better late than never right?
Anzacs have always been something I’ve missed on my gluten free diet. Mum used to make them all the time growing up. So with Anzac Day on Friday and no baked goods in the house I knew it was time I gave this gluten free recipe a go – and they didn’t disappoint!
P.S. I hope you like my new panoramic photo. My husband captured the shot during our stay in Lake Louise, Canada. A stunning place!
