Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

For a special occasion when you want smaller treats, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Place cut bars in decorative mini foil baking cups. Visit a cake decorating supply store for the best selection of cups.
