We were sent these brownies from Devilishly Good Brownie Co. to taste and review and they arrived on my birthday. What a treat! The brownies are hand wrapped in greaseproof paper, then layers of purple tissue paper and tied with a raffia bow. They are placed in a recyclable box with sparkly shredding for padding. Inside is also a handwritten card displaying your own personal message. These make a lovely gift to send to someone instead of flowers or chocolates.
This was one of my favourites. Quite a thick brownie, smelling very orangy and has orange flavoured/coloured chocolate drizzled on top.
On tasting the brownie without the drizzled orange I couldn’t taste a lot of orange so I’m guessing that it was only that which had the orange flavouring to it. The brownie had plenty of lovely large chunks of chocolate inside and it was nice and soft under the crisp topping, rather a ‘fudge like’ texture.
A very soft, squidgy brownie. Smells nice and rich like a brownie usually does – and should. It was thinner than all the other brownies.
This brownie contains cherries and alcohol -which you can certainly taste – perhaps port, I’m not too sure but I think this made it a little soggy and there was no crispness to the top of the brownie. I’m afraid this one was rather disappointing.
This brownie has some dark chocolate drizzled over the top and some chocolate sprinkles. It’s a lot thicker than the Boozy Cherry brownie and drier.
The bottom half was softer than the top and I could taste the salt which was nice and subtle in the background. The top had a slight crispness to it and inside are nice chunky pieces of chocolate again.
Another favourite of mine as I love most things tasting of coffee. As soon as I opened it up I could smell the coffee, but on saying that, it wasn’t overpowering so anyone who really doesn’t care for coffee flavoured cake/chocolates etc., would probably still enjoy this.
On the top there are several ‘coffee beans’, which aren’t actual beans, just chocolate which looks like beans. In fact, I think I would have liked them to have been real chocolate coated coffee beans. Again, nice and thick with a crispness to the top, squidgy ‘fudge-like’ bottom half and choc chunks throughout.
Sharon – the owner of Devilishly Good Brownie Co. – also co-owns a sandwich and baguette shop in Cardigan, West Wales where she has tried and tested her brownies on her customers.
There are other flavours available including Peanut Butter Nutter which sounds very nice. Peanut butter chocolates/ice cream etc., is very popular at the moment.
The brownies are made fresh to order and will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or you can freeze them on the day of arrival. They can be heated in the microwave and served with cream or ice cream making a delicious dessert. Twelve brownies will cost you £14.99 plus £7 p&p.
