Gluten-free Recipe: Dairy-free Chocolate Cashew Cake (No Bake)

Dairy used to be my friend, but then we had to break up and it is the most difficult breakup I have ever had.

  Do you know what a brookie is? I didn’t before I received a recipe from McCormick. A brookie is a combination of brownie batter and cookie dough, which creates a half chocolate chip and half brownie cookie, or the best of both worlds.
