Gluten-Free Chocolate Dessert Recipes So Exquisite, You Won't Notice The Difference

Chocolate is naturally gluten-free, which is great news for all. But delicious and chocolatey cakes, cookies and bars often rely on ingredients containing wheat protein, such as all-purpose flour, in order to rise.

Fret not: Gluten-free chocolate treats are possible with a few mindful adjustments. Subbing in alternatives like quinoa, modified flour, tapioca or rice flour, and xanthan gum (and sometimes, just going flourless) is all it takes to make a heavenly chocolate sweet. Of course, the proof is in the pudding chocolate, so check out these 23 recipes below, all of which are gluten-free, chocolatey and absolutely drool-worthy.
