gluten free candy cane brownies recipe

I was craving brownies the other day so I worked on a new brownie recipe to share
with you all. The brownies were baked in a 9 x 13 baking pan which made them a thinner brownie which I really liked and I topped them them with melted chocolate chips as well as crushed gluten free candy canes.
All I can say is YUMMY!
I also used real butter in the recipe but feel free to use vegan “butter” if you want.
This recipe would be a great one for gift giving too. You can find Christmas tins at the dollar store or Michaels which makes great containers for your baked goodies.
These brownies are part cookie and part candy with the combo of baked brownie, chocolate icing and sweet chopped candy canes. After having a couple of brownies I realized I could eat them all so I put the rest in a cookie tin and placed the tin in the freezer until the holidays are here. Better for my waistline I figure.
