What are truffle brownies?

There is so little time left before Christmas, and this is why I wanted to share only the best of the best desserts for the whole family.

This version of a gluten-free brownie recipe is extra special. The brownie is lighter on chocolate but heavier on truffle topping.

truffle brownies overview

The gluten-free brownie has a crinkle kind of texture, perfect for filling with a creamy nut truffle sauce. The truffle topping is especially decadent and ever so delicious.

The best part, the 10-ingredient brownies are super easy to make, and the truffle topping is a chocolate sauce mixed with your favourite nut butter.

Are Chocolate Chips Gluten-Free?

I often get asked, are chocolate chips gluten-free? This gluten-free brownie recipe is made with chocolate chips, and I wanted to share some of my findings on chocolate chips.

First, most chocolate chips on the market today are gluten-free. I found that Nestle, Hershey’s and Enjoy Life brands of chocolate chips are gluten-free.

However, I always recommend reading the labels because ingredients may change. For example, Nestles butterscotch chocolate chips are not gluten-free.

With the busy holidays ahead, I wanted to share a gluten-free dessert that is simple to make and one that the entire family will love. If you are a chocolate lover…and who isn’t, these Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Truffle Brownies will be a huge hit.

This gluten-free brownie recipe is not about perfection – it is about melt in your mouth deliciousness! Enjoy!
