Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

For a festive touch, sprinkle with gluten-free holiday-themed decors just after dipping in white vanilla baking chips.

This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
