Brownie Deliveries

Easy brownies delivered to you

Sweet treats should be special, they should make us feel good, as well as tasting fantastic. There are many options for desserts out there, and all can have some way of making us feel comforted or evoke a memory. The big thing it to pick the right one for you.

We’ll give you an example; chocolate is a type of food that helps to release endorphins or serotonin. Studies have shown, that when we eat chocolate our brain releases chemicals such as endorphins or serotonin, which are associated with happiness and positive wellbeing. Now, it’s unclear how chocolate does this, and we’re not suggesting that you eat chocolate all the time, but it’s good to know that when you are treating yourself to something chocolatey it could help with your overall wellness for a short time.

One of the most chocolate central desserts available is a brownie. The definition of a brownie is a small square of rich chocolate cake. Although, we have to disagree with the overall definition of a brownie, firstly, they can’t really be classified as a cake, they fall more into the category of a finger food. This is because you tend to just pick up a brownie to eat it, where are cake is more traditionally eaten using a fork.

But we also think that brownies are a lot more versatile that cake. As we’ve mentioned, you can just have a brownie as a little afternoon treat, with a cup of something hot. Or, you can enjoy brownies as a proper dessert, you can heat them up, and add ice-cream, double cream, or custard. And this can make them ideal as an alternative to a cake for a special celebration.

We know that not everyone enjoys cake as much as we do, but if you are a chocolate lover, then brownies can be the perfect alternative. Also, if you want to make it extra special for a celebration, why not get two big brownies, some icing (if you like it – we recommend chocolate fudge icing to make it even more special), and put them all together to make yourself a brownie cake. Although, ever so indulgent and rich, it’s a great, slightly naughty dessert that will make many people smile. Just add some candles and you have yourself a wonderful birthday cake alternative.

Sponge brownies are perfect for creating a brownie cake, we went away from the tradition of a square brownie. Our brownies are round, there’s a reason for this, and a very good one. One thing we thought about when we set out to develop our brownie range, we realised that everyone had a different preference to what part of a brownie we all preferred. Some are more inclined towards a gooey centre, others like the crispy edges, but we all love a fudgy brownie. So, by creating a round brownie, you avoid disappointment, as they can be cut into wedges, everyone can get the best bit of the brownie. And when you layer two of our brownies on top of each other with some icing in the middle, it really does resemble a traditional birthday cake.

If you are more of a traditional person, you would probably lean towards our triple chocolate brownie - our classic Triple Chocolate Brownie is gloriously gooey in the middle with melted triple chocolate chunks running throughout. It is encased with a crunchy top and decorated with a triple chocolate drizzle. Pure. Chocolate. Heaven.

But we know some enjoy going against the grain, so we developed some flavour combinations that match perfectly to the chocolate heavy brownie. Including a Speculoos caramel biscuit brownie, raspberry and white chocolate brownie, chocolate orange brownie, and a hazelnut praline brownie.

We know that not everyone can enjoy brownies that are made with traditional ingredients, but we wanted to make sure that everyone can enjoy a brownie, as a cake alternative. We are happy to say that most of our brownies (with the exception of our Speculoos brownie) are made with gluten free flour, making them suitable for people who have gluten free dietary requirements. We also have included two vegan brownie options; a vegan chocolate brownie (which is vegan and gluten free), and a vegan Speculoos brownie. We wanted to make our brownie range as accessible to our customers as possible, in terms of catering for dietary requirements.

Or if you are looking for a blondie instead, we have created a range of them as well! We have a white chocolate blondie, and a lemon curd blondie available to choose from. You could even mix and match with our sharing blondie brownie! There are some many options to choose from.
