Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
Don’t leave out those who eat gluten free when making holiday treats. The double chocolate-mint cookies will be a big hit with those who often get overlooked this festive and treat-laden season. If you make edible treats as gifts, always be sure to ask about any special dietary concerns or allergies.
