GF Chocolate Dipped Almond Horns

Introduction: GF Chocolate Dipped Almond Horns

These are delicious, not too sweet, showstopper of a cookie! Super quick to make, just as quick to consume. I’m not gluten Intolerant, but thoroughly enjoy these morsels of goodness. Keep them in the freezer for last minute company. I’m always asked to bake for small events or just get well baskets, these are handy additions.
