Of course it has to be clean, and the darker the better. Besides eating it straight from an awesome bar, the next best thing to do with chocolate is to bake with it. Creating a gluten free chocolate cake recipe that makes you go “mmmmm” is incredibly satisfying.

We’ve pulled that one off with this dessert many times, and we’ve yet to find anyone who doesn’t love it, and who isn’t baffled by what it’s made of.

When he told me they were gluten free and vegan (he used egg replacer) I didn’t believe. These are good. They’re that good.
