Salted Caramel Double Chocolate Brownies
Thank you, Krusteaz, for sponsoring this salted caramel double chocolate brownies recipe.
I know most of you are probably looking at healthy/ healthier recipes at the moment, so I am just going to put these salted caramel double chocolate brownies here until you are ready again for indulgent treats.
These brownies were a result of experimenting with gluten-free baking. Gluten-free baking has always intimidated me, so I took some time this holiday season to test a few gluten-free products, develop some of my own recipes, and share them with you as some of you have reached out asking for GF recipes.
I started looking at GF baking mixes, and GF baking flours as those are easy and reliable for most of us. My trusted Krusteaz friends sent me a few of their gluten-free products to try, and these double chocolate brownies were one of my favorite from their collection. The idea of a decadent dose of chocolate was hard to resist.
These double chocolate brownies are moist in the center and chewy outside. Each bite is filled with chocolate chip bits! And every single bite of it is gluten-free, but you cannot even tell. It’s just as delicious, and my husband couldn’t even tell a difference. (He was my blind taster!). For the recipe today, I decided to top the brownies with a sweet and salty salted caramel frosting to take things up another level.
If you are looking for an easy gluten-free chocolate recipe for a birthday or celebration, these brownies are the way to go.
