Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies
With Marshmallow Fluff Buttercream
Lavished with Chocolate Glaze
Not having known anyone with Celiac disease, I never felt the need to explore gluten free baking. Recently, I learned that a child in our family was diagnosed with Celiac and needed a gluten free diet. The realization struck me that he and other children must often have to be denied cupcakes, cakes and brownies at parties while they watch other kids enjoy these desserts. This led me to the realization that more delicious gluten free recipes need to be developed. It is important that we all conscientiously and respectfully provide fun and delicious foods for those who have Celiac Disease.
This little boy has a wonderful Mom, Dad and family who make it their purpose to cook delicious gluten free meals and desserts. The Chocolate Goddess wants to make sure all parents have access to yummy and fun sweets for gluten free children and adults. No child should experience having to pass on a confection at a birthday or holiday or any day. If any child suffering from Celiac Disease will be at your party, you should provide or afford the opportunity for their parents to arrange for some gluten free snacks and desserts. If it is your own child, make sure you make enough of your gluten free dessert for them to share.
The Chocolate Goddess Gluten Free Brownie is one of the most scrumptious brownies ever. You don’t have to be on gluten free diet to bake it or to marvel in its deliciousness. Gluten free; but deviously delicious, it is difficult to discern that there is no wheat flour. This brownie is cloaked in a chocolatey and fudgy taste and texture, veiled with a delicious marshmallow buttercream and topped off with a thick chocolate glaze. Finish it with a dollop of the marshmallow buttercream and everyone at the party will want one, so be sure to bring the entire tray.
