As promised in Wednesday’s and Thursday’s posts, here comes a decadent, delectable recipe for Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Bars! One of the tougher aspects of gluten free baking is that I can never be absolutely sure that the treats I bake taste as good as what most people consider ‘the real thing’. I used to be able to bring treats somewhere and have people tell me they were good before they knew I was gluten free, but now pretty much everywhere I’d bring any food, everyone knows, whether family or friends. So when I set out to make something special for my dad’s birthday this year, I used my brother as an honest taste-tester so I could be absolutely sure that what I cooked up was fit for the occasion.
