Gluten Free Chocolate Bombs

A few weeks ago I began panicking about my everyday life. I wasn’t sure, but I began testing whether or not I was allergic to gluten. While I’m still not 100% positive, I don’t think I am (phew, sorry glutenites). Either way – this gave me the opportunity to look through old recipes and readjust them…
