I made these brownies a little while ago for a funeral.
They were a big hit and no one guessed they were gluten free.
There are a few things I love about them: super easy to make, takes a small amount of flour, the tangy sour cream frosting, and the chunks of chocolate chips.
These are super chocolate-y!
Can't beat that right.
Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Brownies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 can (16 oz) chocolate syrup
2 t. vanilla
1 cup GF mix
1 rounded t. xanthan gum
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup sour cream
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in chocolate syrup and vanilla. Stir in the flour, chocolate chips and nuts.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Whisk in sour cream. Gradually stir in powdered sugar until smooth. Frost brownies. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.
