A recipe for decadent, thick, dark chocolate brownies is a must-have for any kitchen, including a gluten-free kitchen. This version is much lighter than the typical brownie (unless you serve them with a giant bowl of vanilla ice cream). You can also dust them with powdered sugar for an even sweeter finish.
