What could be better to serve your beloved than a Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake? No one can resist the decadent layers of crisp chocolate chip cookies and mocha whipped cream, and the best part is, there’s no cooking at all!! Assemble the whole thing a day in advance and simply let it sit in the fridge overnight- and tomorrow you’ll have the most delicious cake waiting for your valentine. The only hard part will be waiting to cut yourself a piece!
This rich, dark, fudgy chocolate cake is gluten-free, but your valentine will never know it! I used Thomas Keller’s genius Cup 4 Cup gluten-free flour, along with a touch of coffee to make the chocolate taste even richer. I'm thinking a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side couldn't hurt, either! Click here for the recipe.
Valentine’s Day is next Tuesday so to mark the occasion, we’re having a week-long celebration of - what else?? - CHOCOLATE!! The first treat is homemade Rum Raisin Truffles – they’re the perfect balance of sweet milk chocolate, raisins, and spicy dark rum. Chocolate truffles sound as though they would be hard to make but I’ve taken all the stress out for you. Who wouldn't love you for making these!?
This Week's Question
Yes! Just substitute 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour for the gluten-free flour.
