Everything is delicious at Cake, a Chicago bakery and NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week (we reviewed it under a previous name, Damn Good Cookies). You can send anything on the menu as a gift, and it will delight the most demanding recipients.

It is not a gluten-free bakery, but there is gluten-free treasure to be found:

If you’re on the hunt for a gluten-free cookie gift for someone with a discerning palate, look no further than their specially Chubby Wubby Defloured, a sophisticated, delectable, gluten-free chocolate cookie.

The cookie sandwich is indeed chubby, Two bittersweet chocolate cookies, studded with chocolate chips, are sandwiched with a layer of chocolate ganache. Trust us: You’ll want more than one box.

In fact, the original Chubby Wubby Chocolate Cookie, made with conventional wheat flour, was so popular that the gluten-free version was created. The conventional Chubby Wubby has led to a family of other Chubbies—different fillings with the same delicious chocolate cookies:

 

  • Chubby Wubby Caramel Cookies with buttery caramel ganache.
  • Chubby Wubby Hazelnut Cream Cookies with creamy chocolate hazelnut ganache.
  • Chubby Wubby Mint Cookie refreshing mint ganache.
  • Chubby Wubby Peanut Butter Cookies creamy peanut butter ganache.
  • Chubby Wubby Raspberry Cookies sweet and tart raspberry ganache.
  •  
    A 12-piece box is $32.00, a 16-piece box is $38.00. Get yours at Cake-Chicago.com.
     
    WHAT’S GANACHE?

    Ganache is a velvety smooth blend of chocolate and cream, often with butter added. It is used as a frosting for cake and as a filling for pastries and chocolates. Rolled into balls, it becomes a chocolate truffle.

    Here’s more about ganache and why it translates in French to idiot or imbecile.
