Brownie Bites with Raspberry Chocolate Topping
Peg first made non-GF Brownie Bites for her co-workers. Since they were such a hit, she decided to make a gluten-free version of them.
The outside is slightly crispy, but the inside is moist and chewy - like a...brownie. Kinda funny how that works...
If you are making this recipe for a gluten-free guest, please read our Guide to Gluten Cross Contamination.
