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:
- 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
