Peanut Butter Fudge Treats

My older sister A is allergic to Gluten. Yes it is as horrible as it sounds. She was recently diagnosed and I can not imagine going 27 years of my life and then being told no more Flour, Wheat etc ever ever again. I give her credit though she has been a trooper. When I first found out about this I worried about my own future because a bus full on my mothers side of the family have this and it is genetic. I might be screwed. I went on mini shopping sprees trying to find the good in the gluten free world only to find out most of the stuff out there is just plan YUCK. I have found it easy to cook for her when it comes to dinner or basic meals because I have brought it back to a more wholesome times minus all the prepackaged garbage. Not so bad but when it comes to desert I have had a hard time. The cupcakes have been a train wreck, the pie the dog wouldn’t even eat. That was until I stumbled upon a recipe on an amazing blog Framed.  I love all of her recipes but more so this one gave me hope that my sister will have deserts in her future.

I made these for her and she can’t stop raving about them I hope you enjoy as well.  BONUS: They are super easy to make.. my nephew Z helped the entire time and loved it.
