Christmas Gluten Free Brownies with chocolate frosting

Tis the season for entertaining! This year I am trying to plan well in advance to avoid the stressors of the holidays. When it comes to entertaining I always try to have a variety of foods to meet everyone’s diet preferences. These gluten, dairy free brownies with chocolate frosting are easy to make, and so delicious that all your friends can enjoy them.

I made these brownies with gluten free all purpose flour because a couple of guests have celiac disease but you could easily substitute all purpose flour. I initially posted this recipe gluten free brownie  and changed a few things to add a little Christmas cheer.  To add a little festive touch I made a vegan chocolate frosting. A great way to get the kids in the kitchen is to have them add Christmas sprinkles. Crushed candy cane would be a nice  substitute.
