Oh, cookie bark….where have you been all my life? I’m sure this Valentine Cookie Bark will be followed by all sorts of holiday cookie barks this year. But right now, I’m all about the Valentine treats. Did you happen to notice the Valentine Brownies on Monday. Delish!
Lucky for me, this treat is easily transformed into a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free dessert without a lot of trouble. With a couple simple swaps, it becomes allergy friendly and I no one will know. Not even picky kids or stubborn hubbys. Come on, I know I’m not the only one with a picky kid or hubby.
I used a gluten free/vegan chocolate sandwich cookie, dark chocolate, and skipped the M&M’s on half of the bark to keep it allergy friendly for my and some of my friends with crazy food allergies. When I think I’m startin’ to get the hang of this new lifestyle I get hit with some raw emotions for my favorite foods I will never again enjoy.
It’s been just under two months and the sad days are fewer and fewer. But when I can come up with something like this that is perfect for me and takes no real thought or extra effort then I just get all giddy inside.
