Gluten-Free Merry Christmas Cupcakes, #Glutino

Glutino generously sent me a package of their products. All opinions are my own.

Peppermint Yogurt Covered Pretzels make pretty Rudy Reindeer antlers.

Thanks to Glutino, everyone can enjoy a Merry Christmas. Gluten sensitive friends and family can now appreciate your sweet gifts from the kitchen. (Worse than lumps of coal in a Christmas stocking is dessert deprivation during this season of merriment. Right?)

Glutino's Salted Caramel Covered Pretzels make for cute reindeer antlers...
And addictive treats! 

My husband works on FOX TV’s Bones. For their Christmas party I made gluten-free chocolate cupcakes. And received rave reviews! After polite thank yous, mmm, I was continually asked, “Are you sure this is gluten-free?”

Christmas cupcakes friendly for kids and gluten-sensitive friends.

Gluten-free baking usually requires a combo of flours to achieve a tasty treat. Glutino’s Gluten Free Pantry allows busy last minute bakers a shortcut.  Martha Stewart’s Easy One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe called for 3 cups of all-purpose flour, I simply poured in a package of Glutino Gluten Free Pantry All-Purpose Flour. The result? Super yummy gluten-free cupcakes!

What's on your gluten-free goodie tray?

After my gluten-free chocolate cupcakes were baked and frosted, I created reindeer faces. Glutino gluten-free pretzels / reindeer antlers were carefully placed onto frosted chocolate cupcakes. (Glutino’s Gluten Free Salted Caramel Pretzels are slightly dangerous…Sweet soft caramel hug hard salty pretzels…Self-control is challenged around the Glutino goodie!)  All the reindeer received the gift of candy eyes. Red M & Ms transformed some cupcakes into Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The Prancers, Dancers and Dashers got Junior Mint noses.

Glutino's Twinkle Sprinkle Cupcakes.

Festive alternatives include Glutino’s Twinkle Sprinkle Cupcakes. Gluten-free emerald and ruby gems are sprinkled atop frosted vanilla cupcakes.

Petite and perfect for a pass around treat at a gluten-free Christmas party! 

Glutino’s Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Brownie mix is another way to bring Christmas joy to the table. No need to add chocolate chips. The brownie is seriously delicious and rich with fudgy goodness.

Glutino's Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Brownie are easy to make and eat!
Happy Christmas to busy moms and bakers.

Christmas carols playing on Pandora made my time in the kitchen extra cheery. I love the Blake Shelton and Michael Buble stations! Do you have a favorite Christmas album or artist?


Wishing you the sweetest Christmas ever!
