These were a huge hit at Christmas Eve dinner! I personally am not a lover of peppermint, but everyone else LOVED these! They were super easy to make, especially in the microwave. I didn't have a 10x10 pan, so used a 9x9 instead and adjusted the timing slightly. I used both the icing and the glaze but there wasn't as much icing as the original photo shows (even in a smaller pan), so next time I'll double the icing. I loved how the bottoms of the brownies were a bit chewy and fudgy, while the rest was a little more cake-like. They made both kinds of brownie lovers happy! Since I didn't like the peppermint, I'm looking forward to trying the next couple batches with lemon or orange extracts, and for Valentine's Day I'm going to make the icing with maraschino cherry juice so that it's cherry and pink! :) Thanks for sharing a great recipe that doesn't feel gluten free!
Love this recipe!! Have made it several times and it is what I make when I have the "gluten free depression" I left out the frosting and just made a mint glaze to drizzle over the brownies. MAKE sure you don't overcook these!! You will end up with a brick. Just follow the directions and you will be fine.
This brownie recipe Rocks! I left off the icing and glace for lack of having the ingredients. I gave it to my celiac pregnant chocolate craving mother and she practically inhaled them. :D This is something I love to make and eat!!!!!!!!
These are incredibly good and very easy. Thank you tartlady! I am very excited to serve them to guests. I used a whipping cream instead of half and half and it made the mint frosting very fluffy. I am a celiac living in Asia so I was happy to get such an easy recipe. Note however that I used Thai rice flour which is soft like cake flour. It has worked well with my recipes that had been grainy when I used regular rice flour from the states.
Very good overall. However, please specify what type of sugar. I used granulated and they ended up grainy in texture. I think that powdered sugar would be a better choice.
Considering these are gluten free, they are quite tasty. I did not use the frosting as the brownies are plenty sweet on their own. Also, I baked mine in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This will be a valuable recipe for me when I bake for people on a gluten free diet. Thank you!
Thank you for sharing this recipe, Its so yummy and easy..I also skipped the icing to save fat and calories, they don't need it!
I made these but didn't bother with the icing. They were excellent and I cant wait to make them again! A perfect snack for my lunch box! Thankyou!
This recipe was very easy to make and even my non-celiac friends loved the brownies. I didn't bother with the frosting, and nobody missed it!
