Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Gluten and Dairy Free Candy Cane Chocolate Mousse.

You might boo me for sharing a Christmas recipe before its even December!  This could really be made anytime of the year though as a plain chocolate mint mousse without the Christmas candy cane topping.  I’ve got a few new seasonal recipes coming up in December including:

  • Peppermint Hot Chocolates
  • Candy Cane Chocolate Bars
  • Christmas Mincemeat Cheesecake
  • Maple and Rosemary Pigs In Blankets
  • Pear Cider Punch

I’ll also share a few of my favourite gluten and dairy free recipes from previous years such as my homemade chocolate liqueur and how to make your own Christmas pudding.
