Welcome to Brownie Heaven!
Our shelves are laden with the finest chocolate, the richest cream, the sweetest sugars, and loveliest walnuts and pecans. In the oven is a batch of chocolate mint stick brownies. Cooling near the window are pans of coconut topped brownies and apricot chocolate brownies. A freshly whipped bowl of butter cream frosting waits near a batch of cooled chocolate butter cream brownies. There are, altogether, more than 170 brownie recipes made here.
In case you’re wondering, all scales are banned, all calorie counting books forbidden, and all waistbands are expandable. We encourage licking the beaters and snitching extra brownies is greatly rewarded.
The only thing lacking is your presence. Won’t you join us?
Inspired by the Detroit Free Press Brownie Competition.
