Expert Tips

The bake time for this recipe is longer than the box directions because there is additional moisture in the brownies from the zucchini.

For smooth and shiny frosting, dip metal spatula in hot water and wipe dry. Slide heated knife over frosting; repeat if needed.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
