The Partiologist: Gluten Free Halloween Brownies!

Gluten Free Halloween Brownies!

It's about time I feature a gluten free creation, don't you think?  My daughter has been gluten free for a few years now and we have tried a few good and not so good recipes.  Most of the time I read a gluten free recipe, I see a lot of stuff I don't recognize or have on hand, does this happen to you?  Never Fear, Krusteaz Here!

Mummy Brownies
 Recently I attended the IFBC (International Food Bloggers Conference - don't feel bad, I had to Google it) in Seattle.  The first night of the conference, there was a gift suite, which was a room full of wonderful products for each attendee to take home.  Yea, it was pretty sweet.  As soon as I spotted the Krusteaz Gluten Free Brownie mix, it was added to my bag full of swag!

As you can see, the box got a little worn during the trip home.  But no worries, after I mixed it up according to directions, it was DELICIOUS!  All you need to add is water, oil and an egg.  (I added a cornstarch, using their high altitude directions.  And I must say, these brownies turned out so good, I might start adding cornstarch to everything!  If you don't live at a high altitude, I recommend you move to Colorado and use the high altitude directions.)
 Serious chocolate, like thick fudgy chocolate.  Because these brownies were so good and deserved to be served in style, I decided to dress them up for Halloween.  After the brownies have completely cooled, cut them into eight bars and remove from pan.

The brownies alone, were so easy to make, I had plenty of time to decorate them like mummies.  Add royal icing eyes to each bar.  Fill a decorating bag with white buttercream frosting and a straight edge tip.  Pipe white frosting back and forth across the brownie until your brownie is mummified.

Here's a list of other Krusteaz products - all of which I cannot wait to try, along with a little snippet about the company - don't you love it?

Here is the Krusteaz grandson speaking to us at the conference -
Thank you Krusteaz for making my life a little easier, not mention yummier!

Don't you think it's time to simplify your life and make some yummy mummies?
I've got my eyes on you!

  4. Only you could take a bag of Krusteaz brownie mix and turn it into something so cute! Gluten free followers will LOVE this idea for Halloween!!!

  5. Darn, I wish they had more conferences and events here for bloggers. I'm giggling that it was an 'international' event, but held in the US. I wish I had tons of £'s so I could just hop on a plane to go to these conferences, and of course finally meet blogging friends such as you. :)

    Love the mummies. There cute (as cute as mummies can be). And made with gluten free brownie mix sounds perfect for those that can't eat gluten.
