Gluten Free Minnie Mud Pies

Minnie mud pies are one of our most popular gluten free small chocolate desserts. They are decadent and dense small chocolate dreams. Whether you are entertaining a large crowd or small dinner party, these are ideal desserts. They are simply heavenly!

When I was creating this recipe, I was looking for a cookie that can be used as a base in these easy to make minnie mud pies. I found these delicious gluten free cookies called Nairn’s. They come in different flavours and are four per package for lasting freshness. I used the gluten free chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie to make the base. The cookies are easy to work with and are not too sweet. If I were making a cheesecake, I would use the gluten free oat grahams
