Betty Crocker Hershey's Gluten Free Cookies and Cream Frosting and Smores!

Ok, so I do love to bake and it seems as though we have had many reasons to whip up desserts around here lately. My favorite cake mix is the King Arthur gluten free chocolate. I make these, frequently, when I'm bringing a dessert to share with others. While I love baking, I am not the best with frosting. Often, I make my own, and it's good, but sometimes I am just in a hurry and I want to pick up something that is ready to use. Imagine my delight when I saw these new flavors from Betty Crocker that were labled gluten free? Additionally, they do not add dairy to the ingredients, which is a bonus for us. I was further pleased that the fat was not a hydrogenated oil, as if often found on frosting labels. It is palm shortening. These frosting containers come with a topper of crumbles to sprinkle on the cakes. The base ingredients for the crumbles are rice and tapioca. I am so pleased for this quick option that is sure to be fun for kids. My own daughter has very limited exposure to cookies n creme, but I can attest that the frosting does taste like that cream filling. The cookie crunch is a nice touch.
So, while homemade butter cream is still a tastier choice, enjoy this quick fix for the times you are in a hurry.
