Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Truffle Pie

My featured recipe today is not from my personal cookbook, but when I saw this Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Truffle Pie, I could not resist!  Seeing I am a chocoholic, I seem to zero in on recipes such as this one.  Also, I find the frustration Gluten Free Vegans experience trying to find good dessert recipes that are at least a bit healthy.

The featured recipe comes from Living Healthy with Chocolate.
