Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

What’s your favorite cookie? These Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for the chocolate lover! With Guittard Extra Dark Baking Chips and Cocoa Powder you can’t lose! I love dark chocolate so these are exactly what I wanted today.

I like to make a large batch and freeze them in balls or just the round of cookie dough in freezer safe containers. This is such an easy way to just make a few fresh, hot cookies at a time. These smell so good when they are baking and taste just as great!

You could also cool them, then spoon slightly softened ice cream between two. Press together and add a bit of ice cream to out outside edge. Then refreeze in parchment or cellophane for a fun COVID safe dessert. Each person just touches their own ice cream sandwich. You could even make different ice cream sandwich flavors, using your favorite gluten free ice cream and flavors. Then label each sandwich with their ice cream flavor!

Do something you love today with someone special and enjoy the day!
