Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Have you guessed that I am a chocolate lover? These gluten and dairy free moist, gooey brownies are made with cocoa and chocolate chips and topped with chocolate icing. Yummy! They are easy to make and a delight to all during Spring Break and Easter.

I made sure that these moist, gooey brownies are not too sweet. That makes them just right to serve with your favorite toppings. Having lived in South Florida, my taste buds are ready for strawberries. We are so lucky here in the United States to enjoy such a long growing season. During the late winter, strawberries are shipped from our warm, southern states. Then the mid-states enjoy strawberry season around Mother’s Day. However, they keep coming through the fourth of July from our northern states.

Strawberries and chocolate must be soul mates because any recipe using these two ingredients is a favorite of mine. Check out my old fashioned gluten and dairy free pancake recipe topped with strawberries and truwhip. Who needs syrup?

You can bake these brownies in a 9×13 pan for thinner chewier brownies or a 9-inch square pan for thicker brownies. Either way, I like to line my pan with unbleached parchment paper for easy clean-up.

Spread the brownie batter evenly across the pan.

For the 9×13 pan, bake for 30-35 minutes. For the 9-inch square pan, bake for 40-50 minutes. The top of the brownies should be cracked and a knife should come out clean when finished.
