Gluten Free Chocolate Pate

All my gluten free friends!!!
Wait...friends who are gluten free!!
No...friends who EAT things that are gluten free!

Get ready to rumble, because this dessert will cause fights and untold amounts of happy sounds.

Use a heavy bottomed pan, copper bottom, if you have it.

Annnnnnd away we go!!

TWO sticks of salted butter.

1/2 cup white sugar

3 cups chocolate chips. I use 2 dark, 1 milk

Set the burner on LOW, I repeat, L-O-W and melt everything together, stirring every few minutes. Be patient, my young padawans. This will take about 1/2 hour. Can you see the grains of sugar? Those need to go bye-bye.

Now you need to start whipping the 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream,
whip until it's *SLIGHTLY* stiff, but not too stiff. Trust me.

Now add two eggs to the chocolate, whip them in well, but leave it all on the stove.

Line a large wet loaf pan with plastic wrap. The moisture helps hold the wrap in place.

When the whipping cream is ready, blend in with the chocolate mixture.

Pour it into the pan and chill 8 hours or overnight.

To serve, flip onto a flat serving plate and slice like a loaf. I serve mine with a berry reduction and whipped cream.


*forget asking about calories in this. 


  1. David will not see this. If he does, it will be an unfair two against one--david and my chocolate craving against the bathroom scale... it looks absolutely delish!

  2. It's SO easy and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!

  3. Oh Jennifer. This looks to-die-for delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm copying now. And hiding from my hubby. He'll want it sooooon. I think I'll save it for an uber-reward, like when I finish this set of revisions. Or, maybe for hubby's birthday, which is coming up. Hmm, maybe I'll make it as a weekend treat. Or maybe tonight.

    Oooooh, you're soooo not good for me. ;) Thanks for sharing, my friend!

  4. You're welcome. AND the second person who swears her husband will never know about this recipe. BUT, I want to know your exact thoughts after your first bite.

  5. Um. Wow. Yum. I can't wait to try this!!!!!!

    1. Hi Susie!! This is the easiest way to make your friends fall on your feet and promise a lung or kidney, should you ever need one.

  6. Jennifer! YUM! And so stinkin' easy!!!!! This is the kind of gluten-free I can handle! I don't know if you'd be able to call me "glutton-free" after I eat the whole thing, though.....

    Lovely! And GREAT PICS!!!!!

  7. We are friends for life now. And, I'm with Becky ^^^ I may be gluten free, but not glutton free! This looks fabulous..
