If you’re a fan of Three Musketeers, I have some good news for you! All varieties and size variations are completely gluten free and safe to consume when following a gluten free diet.

Three Musketeers Gluten Free Brownie Recipe
Now that we’ve discovered that 3 Musketeers is gluten free, I thought we’d take a look at how to make gluten free fudge brownies, using 3 Musketeers chocolate! This recipe is inspired by one from Cookies and Cups, which we’ve tailored to suit a gluten free diet. Let’s take a closer look.
The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are:
- 1 box of gluten free brownie mix (baked and cooled following the directions on the packet)
- 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 bag of chopped fun sized 3 Musketeers bars
Step-by-step To Make Three Musketeers Gluten Free Brownie Recipe
Now all you need to do is:
Step 1: Prepare
Gather all of the ingredients you need for this recipe. Before we start adding the 3 Musketeers fudge, you’ll need to bake your gluten free brownies by following the instructions on your brownie mix. Remove from oven and leave to cool.
Step 2: Make the Fudge
Place half of your chopped chocolate bars on the top of your cooled brownie. Ensure it’s evenly distributed. Now add your milk and chocolate chips to a bowl and melt in the microwave. Check regularly and mix well. Once melted, pour this mixture over your brownies and then add the remaining candy bars on top of fudge mixture.
Step 3: Serve
Once decorated, place the brownies into your refrigerator. The fudge will need at least 30 minutes to set before you can consume. Once set, remove from fridge and cut into squares. Enjoy!
Gluten Free Chocolate
While there are many popular brands of chocolate which are gluten free, I thought I’d share a list of some of my favorites (besides 3 Musketeers, of course!).
If you love M&M’s, you’ll be pleased to hear that almost ALL of their varieties are gluten free. The only ones that contain gluten are pretzel M&M’s, crispy M&M’s and some seasonal varieties. If you’re unsure, always remember to check the ingredients label.
Much like M&M’s, almost all of the Dove varieties are gluten free. The only ones that currently contain gluten and are not safe for us are the Cinnamon Graham, and Cookies and Cream varieties.
Aero is my go-to choice when it comes to chocolate. It’s bubbly, creamy and melts on the tongue. The following flavors of Aero are gluten free:
- Milk Chocolate Aero
- Mint Chocolate Aero
- White Chocolate Aero
- Orange Chocolate Aero
- Aero Mini’s
- Aero Bubbles (all varieties)
Reese’s is one of the most popular chocolate around the world. And most of their products are gluten free! Their seasonal varieties never seem to be free from gluten, so always be wary of those. The following are gluten free:
- Original Peanut Butter Cups
- Fast Break
- Nutrageous Bar (all sizes)
- Reese’s Pieces
- Unwrapped Mini’s (milk and white)
Another popular choice is Hershey’s. While they don’t have a huge selection of gluten free products, they are delicious. You can enjoy the following options:
- plain milk chocolate bar
- milk chocolate with almonds bar
- Hershey’s nuggets (only some)
- Hershey’s kisses (only some)
