I was playing with molecular gastronomy the other day to make treats for a birthday party and nothing was working. Jonathan kept reminding me that I pride myself on being an experimental blogger so I can’t expect things to work every time. But, I do expect recipes to work every time – I’m an eternal optimist.
Time was running out; I had to leave in ten minutes and I had no dessert ready to bring! I peeked in my refrigerator and realized that I had some leftover pumpkin puree. Knowing that the birthday girl was on a gluten-free diet, I quickly created some no-bake gluten-free crispy chocolate pumpkin bites. Start to finish, this recipe took five minutes and it is hella good! It tastes like a chocolate truffle crossed with a pumpkin pie and a Rice Krispie treat! I love challenging crazy recipes, but sometimes easy recipes win and I just need to take a deep breath and celebrate that.
