Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Honduras Theme Week.
Today's Gluten Free Manifesto Honduran Chocolate Brownie was made by Sweet Street Desserts (Reading, PA), and available at Rubio's Restaurants, Inc. (San Diego, CA).
This rich dark, gluten-free chocolate brownie was made with authentic-tasting dark chocolate (yes, alkalized, but it also had some faint earthy bold flavor left) and had a pleasing soft, velvety dark texture (especially when fresh). It was cohesive without being too firm, with a very thin layer of cooked, light flaky brownie on top.
The brownie I purchased from Rubio's was freshly defrosted and was quite good cold.
