Several years ago my Mom was diagnosed with celiac disease. At first, it was a huge ordeal to find gluten free products, learn what she could and couldn't eat, and train my kids to keep their fingers, spoons, and knives out of EVERYTHING. Slowly, it became a habit, but not necessarily a delicious one.
A lot of the food was still bland, tasted like cardboard, or was so hard you couldn't bite into it. Insert Betty Crocker's Gluten Free baking mixes. When Betty Crocker first started advertising for their mixes I was a little hesitant to buy any. Then, I tasted the brownie mix at my Mom's house and man, oh man. Even my husband admitted to not being able to tell the difference. They were really good. Since then I have been able to try a good variety of their baking mixes. Banana bread, cookie and cake mixes and also a rice flour blend, they are all amazing and work well into recipes too! So when My Blog Spark contacted me about doing a review and giveaway, I was more than pleased!
So, today I give you Gluten Free Buckeye Brownies.
I tried this recipe last week and I'm pretty sure I gained 4 lbs off of the amount I consumed over a two day period. It was pretty ridiculous. They can be made with Betty Crocker's Gluten Free Brownie mix for a fabulous gluten free dessert.
I originally found the recipe here and just adapted it with other gluten free products as well. I also renamed mine the Buckeye Brownie for obvious reasons. :-)
1 Box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cook the brownie mix according to directions. Allow to cool completely. In a bowl, mix peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and milk until smooth. The mixture will be thick. Spread onto cooled brownies. Then, heat the cream in a saucepan until ready to boil. Pour over chocolate chips and stir until melted. Pour over brownies and smooth with a spatula. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.
