After posting a healthy salad recipe I had to share a decadent holiday dessert.
This is a recipe for a 3 layer brownie.
First layer is a baked chocolate brownie then topped with marshmallow creme and then finally a crunchy chocolate/ peanut butter layer.
Sound good, right?
I was going through old family recipes and found this recipe called Crunch Brownies.
It had no name on it so I have no idea who wrote the original recipe but I did change quite a few things to make it gluten free.
Give the recipe a try and please let me know what you think. I am sure you will love it!!
While I used butter in this recipe you could easily use Earth Balance vegan butter and the recipe would be dairy free too.
