Twill make Old Women Young and Fresh; Create New Motions of the Flesh. And cause them long for you know what, If they but taste of chocolate.
~~ James Wadworth (1768-1844) from A History of the Nature and Quality of Chocolate ~~
A little over a week ago, we were blessed to receive a wonderful package from the American Brownie Company.
The outside packaging was beautiful... oh, but inside... the deep, alluring smell of the chocolate... ah, bliss!
We stood there admiring those scrumptious brownies for several minutes before we came to our senses and dove in!
OHMIGOSH! How and where do I begin to describe these brownies to you? They are almost fudge-like in texture, rich and chewy. These are NOT your Mama's brownies! :)
We received the Spring Collection Brownie and Blondie Tower Gift Pack.
The Spring Collection consists of:
*4 - Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Truffle Towers
*4 - White Chocolate Cherry Walnut Blondie Truffle Towers
*4 - Double Dark Chocolate Brownie Truffle Towers
*4 - White Chocolate Walnut Latte Blondie Truffle Towers
*4 - Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Truffle Towers
I can tell you that Mike (Review Daddy) grabbed a Double Dark Chocolate Brownie right off the bat, poured himself a big glass of milk and sat happily munching away.
Liz and I were a bit more reserved. We got our milk first, then
fought over chose our brownie. I chose the Chocolate Raspberry and Liz went for the Chocolate Peanut Butter.
I don't think I've ever tasted a brownie so good. EVER.
I will tell you, too, that eating one will fill you up for a while! They are just so decadent...
The good thing is that they will last you several days -- best kept in the fridge for optimum freshness!
We have warmed ours in the microwave for about 10 - 15 seconds. We've eaten them with ice cream and even topped with a dollop of whipped cream! YUMMEH!
The first you realize about the American Brownie Company is that they put all of their best into making these brownies: best quality ingredients, best care, and their love. Best of all? The brownies are made from scratch! It truly makes all of the difference.
