No Nut Choc-Berry Brownie Bites with Strawberry Gum
These No Nut Choc-Berry Brownie Bites with our native Strawberry Gum Extract are an ideal treat for any school lunchbox. They’re nut and refined sugar free, rich and chocolately and utterly delicious. We highly recommend doubling the recipe, because once the kids taste them, they’ll be gone before you know it.
