Giving a box of brownies to a chocolate lover is a great way to say you care, but sending a box of brownies to a chocolate bunny who owes you money says you're not messing around. Speak the language of sweets with today's Groupon: for $14, you get one dozen 2-ounce individually wrapped assorted brownies at Athena's Silverland Desserts in Forest Park (a $29.95 value). Today's Groupon is valid for delivery, but the cost of shipping is not included. The brownie assortment includes the following:
- Pecan chocolate caramel
- Rocky road
- Double chocolate with walnuts
Athena's Silverland Desserts, named a top-10 mail-order dessert business on The Insider's List With Julie Moran, festoons tables with individually wrapped brownies made from all-natural ingredients and stacked in a seasonal gift box. The bakery's original confection, double-chocolate brownies with walnuts, emerge from small batches melted and mixed by hand, and pecan chocolate caramel delicacies offset dark-chocolate flavors with wisps of gooey caramel. Eaters attack rocky-road squares from the top, plunging teeth through fluffy marshmallow into a layer of pecans and dark-chocolate chips atop a cocoa foundation sweeter than the laughter of a child who's diving into a vault of Sweet'N Low.
The brownies are excellent - just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate flavor.Rob W., Yelp, 1/29/11
