Gluten Free Easter Dessert
This must might be the best Gluten Free Easter Dessert ever because it is delicious and super crazy cute too. I am a gluten free eater. It is for a lot of reasons that I choose this but the biggest of all is because I feel a gazillion times better without gluten bloating up my body and slowing me down. I whipped up a batch of Krusteaz gluten free brownies yesterday and because I am crazzzzzy about carrots, made them darling.
Directions for Gluten Free Easter Dessert
I used the recipe that comes with the mix but baked the batter in a muffin tin for only 32 minutes.
Once the brownies were totally cool, made holes in the middles with a clay tool. I filled the holes a little overflowing with orange icing. If a clay tool is not available, use the tip of a knife to carve the holes out.
Then I added green icing for the carrot tops. The icing could be replaced with green candies too. Sometimes the additional dimension and texture really changes the way a dessert looks if appearance is a priority to you. There are a lot of gluten free candies to choose from. Green jelly beans would even work great and match an Easter vibe.
Look inside. OH.MY.CUTENESS. For frosting lovers, this is the best part of the gluten free dessert because there is a lot of it here. Personally, I love the icing, especially homemade buttercream.
This is my favorite icing recipe for things like this.
I love this buttercream frosting recipe because it is easy and tastes the best ever. While the vanilla is delicious, other flavors can be substituted creating many options. For instance, almond extract works great and gives the overall desert a slightly different feel. Flavors van be mixed together. One of the best combinations is half vanilla and half almond.
- 4 cups Powdered Sugar
- 1 cup Butter (Softened)
- 2-3 teaspoons Vanilla
- 1-2 tablespoons Milk
- Kitchenaid Mixer
- Mix softened butter and vanilla in the large mixing bowl until they are totally combined.
- Add Powdered Sugar and beat on low until it is mixed in good. Then bump up the mixer up to medium-high speed.
- If the frosting seems to dry, add a little bit of milk at a time until frosting is the consistency you like.
Cheers to SWEET Gluten Free Treats,
If you want a craft to do while you eat these treats, carrot crafts are some of my favorites to make. The colors green and orange are just so perfect together. Here are eight that I think you will really love. The cool thing about crafting is that once a project is made and the technique learned, it can be applied to making tons of other creations with different themes. This rocks because it translates to all of the decoration ideas, holidays, seasons and celebrations.
