Brownie Confessions

[ 0 ] February 16, 2012 |

After taking in about a pound of lamb during one sitting, I surprised myself when I pulled out Naughty Bits Brownies and a tall glass of milk for dessert.  With names like “The Shiksa Brownie”, the “Cabana Banana Boy Brownie” and the “Living in Sin Brownie”, my temptation would not let me pass on dessert.   Out of the six flavors sitting on my counter, my taste tester and I chose the “Man Catcher” and the “Barista Bar”.  Alongside Moorenko’s Vanilla Ice Cream, I proceeded to my evening in a food coma.

The gourmet brownies are 2.75” x 2.75” with a consistent mix of cocoa, sugar, eggs, butter, flour, vanilla and salt.  Some are topped with dried bananas (“Cabana Banana Boy”), miniature peanut butter cups (“Living in Sin”) and wasabi (“The Geisha Girl”).  A skeptic to prepackaged baked sweet goods, I was delighted by the moisture and balance of sugar in these brownies.  They did not over compensate with tons of sugar and tacked on ingredients that can maintain a lengthy shelf life.

Since I voiced my opinion on being over the cupcake craze, Naughty Bits could have something here.  Imagine DC full of brownie shops with decadent ice cream toppers??  This would work.
