Olive Oil Chocolate Truffles

Who doesnt love a decadent, smooth, rich chocolate truffle??  The perfect serving size, portable, and the timeless taste of this sweet treat, making for a dream worthy dessert.  The best parts?  Obviously gluten/grain free (thats a duh on that one), and with no extra refined sugar added (though, there is sugar in the chocolate bars already of course).

And the combination of chocolate and olive oil?  A longstanding one, with a lengthily line of devotees.  Get ready to hop on in line after sampling these creamy, oh so dreamy, super easy to make treats.  And these Chocolate + Olive Oil truffles in particular?  Bakery quality good.  Dont take my word for it though, try them yourself.  Better yet, serve them to crowd and watch them be wowed.

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse Pie

Another sinfully decadent chocolate dessert, without the loads of sugar.  Imagine that.  The three friends who sampled this one raved about it.  This recipe (#49) is gluten-free and low in refined sugar.  If you want to keep it 100% refined sugar-free, skip the ganache topping.  The dessert will still be DELICIOUS.  The mousse filling is made with protein packed Greek yogurt.  The texture is light and creamy, which makes this a dangerous one.  Its easy to eat more than one slice.  Like a box of Girl Scout Thin Mints, it has a way of disappearing quickly.  What can offer some peace of mind is that fact that the ingredients are far healthier and lighter than those of a typical chocolate mousse pie.  Enjoy this tasty treat!

Chocolate Lovers Pie

Calling all chocolate lovers, I have a succulent recipe for your eating pleasure.  Behold, chocolate cream pie.  This one (recipe #45) however, unlike the majority of others in its family, is gluten-free AND refined sugar-free!  The texture of it is lovely.  Silky smooth.  The flavor is rich and chocolatey, but the pie itself is light.  Be careful, it would be easy to eat several slices of this one in one sitting.
