10 Decadent Gluten-Free Desserts

January 14, 2014

Here are a list of ingredients that are (usually) gluten-free: chocolate, sugar, fruit, cream, nuts, peanut butter, honey -- in other words, everything you need to make an entirely satisfying treat for an afternoon snack, a midnight craving, or an elegant final course for your next dinner party.

Whether you are gluten-free, trying to sweeten up a gluten-free friend, or just in the mood to eat something extremely tasty, here are 10 desserts to try. We promise the words "ambrosia," "divine," "heaven," and "indulgent" will come to mind before "gluten-free."

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
