Amys Gluten Free Pantry

My friend, Simone, gave me the idea for these lit­tle nuggets. Using ready made choco­late sand­wich creme cook­ies (they look like Oreos) make these gluten-free, casein-free bon­bons a snap to make.  Add peanut but­ter to the mix and you’ve cre­ated the per­fect valentine.

Active time: 20 min­utes
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 36 bon­bons
Spe­cial tool: food processor

1 8 oz. pack­age Choco­late Sand­wich Creme cook­ies (I use GFCF Kin­ni­TOOS by kin­nikin­nick)
3/4 c. peanut but­ter (use organic if you can)
1  12 oz pack­age semi-sweet choco­late chips (Trader Joe’s is GFCF)

  1. Add cook­ies to food proces­sor fit­ted with steel blade. Pulse until mix­ture is bro­ken down and com­bined, for inter­mit­tently for a minute or so. Don’t worry if you still have small chunks.
  2. Add peanut but­ter and pulse until well com­bined. The dough will start to clump together.
  3. Roll about a tea­spoon worth of dough into balls between hands. Place close together on a cookie sheet.
  4. Place sheet in freezer for at least 20 min­utes until firm.
  5. Melt choco­late chips on low in heavy bot­tomed saucepan or in dou­ble boiler. Hold­ing onto base of bon­bon, dip into choco­late until well coated. Replace back on cookie sheet. Freeze for addi­tional 20 min­utes. These keep best in the refrigerator.
