Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Vegan Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

Fudgy Gluten-Free Vegan Brownies

We have a lot of friends on a variety of restrictive diets right now, and as someone who loves to entertain, I wanted to make sure I had a treat that everyone could eat. But first and foremost, it had to be something everyone would actually want to eat.

I began scheming up a super fudgy, no-frills brownie that could be gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free — and still leave us all reaching for more. Mission accomplished.

Kit Kat is no stranger to variations on its classic wafer, but this one is fancy AF. 

After debuting a 24-karat gold covered Kit Kat, a sake-flavoured Kit Kat and Kit Kat sushi, the chocolate bar brand has come up with the Chocolatory Gateau Mignon, which has a piece of rich chocolate cake inside it.

It’s a weird shape to mold chocolate into.

@38beem, a Japanese Twitter user — in an effort to make a chocolatey gift for Valentine’s Day — created what seems to be a manhole cover set into a sidewalk out of chocolate.

He documented the process on Twitter:

There are Sake-flavored Kit-Kats now

A classic English chocolate bar. The finest Japanese wine. Together, at last.
