Nothing says love quite like homemade baked goods. And what could be better than the fudgy, chocolaty goodness of a brownie! Especially when they are small batch and made back in my home state. Today I’m sharing my review for Better Together Bake Shop; a bakery based outside of Philadelphia that has a line of indulgent frozen brownies.
About Better Together Bake Shop:
Better Together Bake Shop is a Philly based bakery run by husband and wife team Todd and Kestra Kelly. Sometimes the best plan in not having a plan. Sitting in his cube one day buried in spreadsheets, Todd knew it was time for change. Later that day he turned to his wife and told her he wanted to start a baking company. So both quit their day jobs in D.C. and moved to Philly to follow their dreams and love for baking. Founded on the belief that using high quality ingredients without preservatives is the cornerstone of better baked goods, they set out to elevate a classic American treat(like the brownie) and make them better, together.
The brownies come in 5 flavors: Espresso Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt & Caramel, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookie and a fun new flavor, Cake Batter + Sprinkles(Available exclusively at Whole Foods Spring House, PA). Each box comes with 5 individually wrapped brownies. Their handcrafted artisan brownies contain no refined sugar or preservatives; just pure simple ingredients. The brownies can be enjoyed frozen or simply pop them in the microwave and they’re ready in just seconds.
Who’s ready to start sampling with me!
Dark Chocolate Espresso
The Dark Chocolate Espresso brownies combine two of my favorite pleasure in life: chocolate and coffee. These brownies are not an over-the-top espresso brownie, more just a hint-of-espresso-flavor brownie, so you don’t need to be a coffee aficionado to enjoy these. The espresso flavor enhances and deepens the dark chocolate making for an even more decadent treat. If you enjoy honest-to-goodness, rich and dense brownies, you will have found your bliss when you bite into these. The brownies are a little crispy on the edges and totally fudgy in the middle. Serve these warm with vanilla ice cream! I mean, is there really any better combo than a warm brownie and cold, vanilla ice cream?
Sea Salt & Caramel
Imagine your most thick, dense, fudgy, rich, beautifully baked brownie. Now imagine it layered with soft caramel. Not like a sickly-sweet caramel. A just-right, flavor-rich, soft, silky caramel. These delicious little bites are sweet, salty, chocolaty and gooey beyond your wildest dreams. I was only going to eat a bite, but then I had another bite and another bite. I couldn’t stop. They were so good!
The thick ribbon of salted caramel inside took these brownies to a whole different level! I heated this for 15 seconds in the microwave. Just look at all of that gooey caramel! One bite and I was in brownie heaven!
Peanut Butter & Chocolate
Is there even a better flavor combination than peanut butter and chocolate? These brownies will blow your chocolate and peanut butter loving mind. The brownie layer is fudgy and chewy, while the peanut butter layer is soft and dense. The peanut butter layer gives them a velvety, ultra-soft texture missing from traditional chewy brownies. I thought the peanut butter filling was reminiscent of a Reese’s peanut butter cup filling. Need I say more! These insane brownies should really come with a warning label!
Better Together Brownies can be purchased online and also found in the freezer section at select Krogers, Whole Foods and Mom’s Organics. Be sure to pick up a pack or two and give them a try. You won’t be disappointed!
