Gluten Free White Chocolate Peppermint Brownies

The holidays are over, but there’s one last weekend to finish celebrating with friends and family before the decorations need to come down and our resolutions kick in.  So, what better way to ring in the New Year than with some delicious Gluten Free White Chocolate Peppermint Brownies?  They’re rich and fudgy with little surprise pockets of creamy peppermint and white chocolate chips.  I daresay you won’t even miss the gluten in these amazing brownies. 

 
These brownies begin with a box of Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Brownie Mix, so you know right away that they’re going to taste great.  Hodgson Mill uses high-quality ingredients in all of its gluten free products, so whether you’re making these brownies or another gluten free recipe, you’ll be pleased with how gluten-like the results are. 

To take these brownies up a notch, I added some Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints® and white chocolate chips to the batter.  I love the combination of chocolate and mint together and white chocolate is always a good thing in my opinion, so putting them into these brownies seemed like the perfect idea – and boy was I right.  

Much like our other brownie recipes, this one is a one-dish-wonder that’s easy to put together.  Start off by melting the butter in a medium-sized saucepan.  Allow the butter to cool slightly and then whisk in the eggs, egg yolk, vanilla extract, peppermint extract and milk.
 

Then whisk in the brownie mix.

Next, fold in the Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints and white chocolate chips.  Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints are available during the holidays, but if you can’t find them, regular Junior Mints®  will work just as well.  

 
Line an 8- or 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray.  Scoop the brownie batter into the pan and spread it around evenly.

Bake the brownies in a 350° oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.  Cool the brownies completely and then refrigerate them in the pan for at least 30 minutes.  Once chilled, carefully lift the brownies from the pan using the foil as handles and transfer them to a cutting board.  Separate the foil from the brownies and cut them into 2-to 3-inch squares.  I found it helpful to periodically rinse my knife under hot water in between slices to keep the blade from becoming too sticky.  The brownies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. 

Welcome in 2014 with a pan of Gluten Free White Chocolate Peppermint Brownies.  They’re sure to please gluten free palates as well as those of gluten tolerant friends and family.  I have yet to meet someone who can resist them.  Enjoy!
