I heard so many great things about the Gluten Free Pantry Chocolate Truffle mix, I just had to try it out! I made these for our Memorial Day cookout to rave reviews.

I purchased this mix from my local natural foods store for $3.99. It is 16 ounces and makes an 8×8 size pan of medium thickness brownies.

Mixing was fairly easy, just add eggs, melted butter and optional chopped nuts. The batter is very thick and a little difficult to spread in the pan. I used a touch of cooking oil on my fingertips to prevent sticking as I smoothed the batter in the pan by hand- spatulas and spoons just weren’t working for me. The instructions suggest 25-27 minutes baking time. Since I like fudge brownies, I opted to bake the brownies for 25 minutes. However, they were underbaked, even for my taste, so I would suggest baking the full 27 minutes for best results. Anything less, and it will just look, taste, and cut like brownie batter.

I also suggest completely cooling and freezing the brownies for at least an hour before cutting, as suggested on the package. These brownies are more like a slice of fudge than a traditional brownie, and really need that freeze time to allow for cutting clean lines. These moist brownies are very fudgey and have a rich chocolate taste, free from grittiness or significant crumbling ( just a bit at the edges ). The mix also contains chocolate chips that add another level of richness to the final result.

These truly are a decadent treat that anyone would enjoy. And they are just as good the next day, if they last that long!

Pros: wonderful flavor, moist, rich, chewy and gooey,

Cons: More like fudge than a traditional brownie, need long cooling/freezing time before cutting and serving

Rating: 4 1/2 stars

    I have tried a lot of GF brownie mixes, and have created them from scratch and this is the best boxed brand I have found – so good even the man (gluten lover) fights me for them!

    It’s true! These brownies are just as popular with the gluten eating family and friends.

    My whole family loves these. I have found they are cheaper at my local Wal-Mart (baking aisle-near brownie/muffin mixes). I have seen them at various Wal-Mart’s in 4 different states.
