When it comes to gluten-free baking, I almost never opt for frosting atop my gluten-free baked goods. Most of the time it is dairy containing, and even if dairy-free or vegan, it’s usually a turn off. After all, vegan frostings tend to be too stiff, too sweet, and too distracting from the baked goods they sit atop.
Before discovering Dollop Frosting, I had all but lost hope that I would ever be able to use store-bought frosting to dress up my brownies, cookies, and more. Every jar of frosting I picked up before was so chalk-full of sugar and weird additives that I just assumed a clean, gluten-free, vegan version was just a dream.
Luckily, dreams do come true and a frosting product really is out there that is allergen-friendly and actually performs perfect as a spreadable, soft, and entirely worthy of being a sweet treat in it of itself. In four distinct, yet versatile flavors, reviewing Dollop turned into an exercise in creativity, which required me to think outside the jar and dream up frosting-worthy creations.
The four flavors of Dollop include classics (hot chocolate and Madagascar vanilla) as well as more daring picks (peanut butter cookie dough and cinnamon-spice). All are:
- Trans fat free
- Cholesterol free
- Made with sustainably-sourced palm shortening
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Spread
Madagascar Vanilla Spread
Hot Chocolate Spread
Because of time limitations, I haven’t gotten to the cinnamon spice spread yet, but will update this review as soon as I clear away a backlog of reviews that have jammed up recently. Although I don’t think I will be a regular purchaser of Dollop’s Frosting, I definitely will be picking up a jar or two whenever a special occasions calls for jazzing up my baked goods. While a bit oily, the frosting definitely is a one-of-a-kind product that fills a large gap in my gluten and allergen-free baking arsenal. The vanilla and peanut butter cookie dough spread definitely were the two standouts, and will be the ones I indulge in again.
