Fudgy Brownies with Simple Nutella Ice Cream
We had friends over for dinner & dessert last night, it was a blast! I experimented with a few desserts and tried it out on them, thanks Jess & Lloyd for being my "test subjects" :) I have tried a gluten free brownie mix from the store, it was pretty good, but I liked this "fudgy" version better. Anyways we thought the gluten-free desserts turned out great, so I am sharing the recipes with ya :)
1/2 cup almond meal (or just buy raw almonds & pulse in a food processor or blender until fine)
Mix the dry ingredients together. In a sauce pan melt the butter & 1 cup of the semi-sweet chips, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, allow to cool for 5 minutes. Mix in vanilla, then add chocolate mixture to dry ingredients. Last add the 2 eggs separately and mix in the remaining 1 cup of semi-sweet chips. Pour into a square 8x8 baking dish. Cook at 325 degrees for about 35 minutes. The brownies should be slightly puffed all over and a tooth pick should come out moist, but clean. Allow to cool to room temp & serve.
The original recipe I adapted this from : http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/ghirardelli-fudgy-gluten-free-brownies/Detail.aspx
