DECADENT COCOA BROWNIES




DECADENT COCOA BROWNIES
These brownies are so decadent-tasting – very close to the real thing!  You do want a nice, rich frosting for these brownies (see link given below to a nice one).  Upon refrigeration they become very solid and are easily cut into beautiful-looking squares.  In this photo, they are at room temperature and the texture is different.  We're taking these as snacks with us to an exotic island for a few days along with these Glazed Almond Chocolate Chip Bars.

4 eggs
3/cup melted butter (175 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1 cup sugar (250 mL)
1/2 cup granulated erythritol (125 mL)
11/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (7 mL)
1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR 1 1/4 cups Keto Bake Mix (250 mL)
1/2 cup cocoa (125 mL)
1/2 tsp baking powder (2 mL)
1/tsp salt (1 mL)
Milk Chocolate Frosting (click for recipe)

In food processor, process eggs.  Add butter, liquid sweetener, erythritol and vanilla extract; process.

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, cocoa, baking powder and salt.  Add to egg mixture; process.  Spread in greased 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan.  Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.  Cool, frost and refrigerate.
