Gluten Free White Chocolate Brownies

Gluten Free Living – 2017

If you enjoy white chocolate then you’re going to love Gluten Free White Chocolate Brownies. These amazing brownies start with one of my favorite brownie recipes, but use Ghirardelli’s white chocolate instead of regular dark chocolate. I make the same fudge icing again using white chocolate. Then I drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate chips over top. Rich, chocolaty, delicious, probably sinfully decadent.

I have to admit I love quick and easy recipes. Complicated dessert recipes that take hours to make are few and far between on this blog. Probably because I’m a little lazy when it comes to desserts. I just hate spending ALL DAY on a dessert. Give me quick and easy (yet delicious) anytime. Well, this recipe is pretty easy. You only have a handful of ingredients each for the brownies and for the frosting.

While there are a few steps to each part, it still isn’t as involved as my Cherry Berries On A Cloud, Red Velvet Cake Roll, or my Philadelphia Cheesecake. Now all of those are fabulous recipes but I wouldn’t categorize them as quick or easy. That’s why you won’t find tons of those kinds of recipes on my blog. I’m more of a plain cook with lots of fairly easy cookies and brownies posted here instead. (Along with every other kind of food imaginable).

Back in December I made a big boo-boo. I made up a couple of hundred trays of cookies for friends, coworkers, neighbors and our church staff, elders and those in our care group for our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. However, there are two of the folks I gave containers to that couldn’t eat any of the goodies because I didn’t provide gluten free options. I felt SO BAD when I realized that. The next day I decided to make a fudge version and a white chocolate version of our favorite brownies for those two friends. I’m glad I did because they absolutely raved over them even sharing with other friends who couldn’t believe they were gluten free!

I will make a couple of recommendations when making gluten free baked goods especially if you’re not used to baking with them. I made a couple of batches of this recipe trying to get the texture right. Not all gluten free baking mixes are equal! Some have a one-to-one equivalence, others do not. Some taste better than others. I used Pamela’s because that’s all I had on hand at the time, but I recommend another GF baking mix that’s more equivalent than that one. Try Bob’s Red Mill all-purpose gluten free flour, Better Batter, or another you see at your store. Their ratios may be better and easier to work with.

Also, you will want to bake this in a cookie sheet rather than a 9×13″ glass baking pan. The dough expands too much around the edges and sinks too much in the middle otherwise. Spread it thinly in the cookie sheet and it will turn out better. Just be sure to watch your baking time. It will cook much faster in a cookie sheet than in a 9×13″ dish.

For those of you looking for recipes for friends for the Super Bowl game or other NFL playoff games, Gluten Free White Chocolate Brownies are a great treat for friends you may know with gluten intolerance. I bet you find even your friends that can eat gluten will love these jewels.

Bake at 350 until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. In a cookie sheet that will be 25-35 minutes, in a 9×13″ dish it will be 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven. Cool brownies completely before adding icing.

Recipe Notes

 

NOTE: My original recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups regular unbleached all-purpose flour. Some gluten free mixes can be made with this amount. I actually used 3 1/2 cups of Pamela's baking mix. It is NOT an equivalent mix. You will probably need about 2 cups of most regular gluten free flour blends.

NOTE: This is better if the batter is spread thinly into a cookie sheet rather than baking it in a 9x13" glass or metal baking pan. That way the brownies won't puff up too much around the edges and cave in the middle of the pan.

NOTE: I highly recommend refrigerating the brownies a couple of hours before cutting into them and adding the chocolate glaze. That allows the brownies to come out of the pan more smoothly. I was in a hurry and had to omit this step.

NOTE: Depending on the size pan you use, these will make about 32-48 brownies.

NOTE: These will take much longer to bake in a 9x13" glass baking dish then if you bake in a cookie sheet. Start checking for doneness after about 25 minutes of baking time if using a cookie sheet. If all you have is a 9x13" dish, these may take almost an hour to bake thoroughly.
