No Bake Dark Chocolate Whiskey Cake Bites! Oh yes, you heard me! Booze bites! These rich and decadent dark chocolate whiskey cake bites are so delicious and simple to make with REAL ingredients. Gluten free and non alcoholic versions as well. Great for dessert or fun party snacks. Cheers!
So I might be a tad selfish with this dark chocolate whiskey cake bite recipe today, but hear me out because I make up for it later. Ok?
You see, chocolate whiskey cake as been on my recipe bucket lists. Just for kicks and to see if I could make it gluten free! Let’s face it, gluten free cake, that actually tastes like cake, is hard to find these days, unless it’s almond cake. Plus I’m always intrigued when booze is involved in a recipe. I digress… anyways, when cooking or baking with spirits or liquor, it’s hard to know what is gluten free and what is not gluten free. It’s also hard to know how much grain is removed in the fermentation process. Bottom line, it really comes down to the brand and how/where it’s made.
Whiskey may be made from gluten grains, but most of the gluten is removed to 20 ppm; which according to most Celiac Disease experts, is probably safe to drink for most Celiacs. So even though the final product (distilled drink) does not contain gluten, the company is not allowed to display or advertised “gluten free” on their label, labeled as gluten-free. Everyone responds and reacts to gluten differently, so it’s best to figure that out for yourself first. You know? Here’s a list of gluten free whiskey brands if you need them and a complete list of gluten free Alcoholic Beverages!
Okay, that being said, I FOUND A GLUTEN FREE WHISKEY brand that reacts well with us (health wise) and used it in these oh so amazing no bake CHOCOLATE WHISKEY CAKE BITES (aka Healthy Bites)!!
HOW TO MAKE DARK CHOCOLATE WHISKEY CAKE BITES:
There is no protein powder in this bite ya’ll. Just pure cocoa, almond flour, coconut flour, honey, and some other super duper healthy ingredients. Oh and melted dark chocolate. Then once the bites freeze, you roll them in more cocoa and coconut sugar!
These chocolate whiskey cake bites really “take the cake” on all my no bake healthy bite recipes thus far! Haha, I may be exaggerating and getting a little corny, but you get the point. They are adult friendly and perfect for the Holidays. And don’t worry, I gave you a non-alcoholic substitute in the recipe as well. I wouldn’t want you to eat a whole batch and get buzzed now, right? Wink Wink. See, my chocolate whiskey cake selfishness pays off, right?Print
Um… here’s where I’m being selfish (again). I want to give these bites away in a giveaway but I also got so distracted with other things that I forgot to get another prize to go along with this giveaway. I was in my own world and totally forgot! Shameful!
Here’s where I make up for my selfishness.
Instead of a prize, I thought I’d giveaway a box of Healthy Bites; maybe some chocolate whiskey cake flavors or other flavors I have in stock. PLUS —-> another CUSTOM ORDER BOX for you to win or to ship to someone else as a Christmas/Holiday present. That means you can order whatever flavor/dietary preference you want! Does that sound good? Does that totally make up for forgetful behavior? Haha. Please say yes! Because, tis the season for GIVING!
Go ahead, take a bite! Cheers, literally!
Nutrition TIP OF THE DAY summary: If a food or product is measured below 20 ppm with gluten; it is shown to be safe to drink for most Celiacs, but not certified gluten free. Everyone responds differently to gluten, so take that into consideration if you are cooking/baking for gluten free friends.
