The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Chomp into a chocolaty love-pass with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a six-brownie sampler pack with shipping included (a $28 value) from Vermont Brownie Company.
Vermont Brownie owners Shawna Lidsky and Katherine Hayward baked dozens of brownie batches before developing the ideal recipe—one that packed enough chewy, chunky, chocolaty punch to rip the Throwdown title from under celebrity chef Bobby Flay's fudge-laden feet. Sampler packs are assortments of the best-selling of Lidsky and Hayward's preservative-free, made-from-scratch, and artistically assembled brownies. Each box contains one of each of the following six flavors: signature, dark chocolate chevre, espresso dulce de leche, peanut butter, maple toffee crunch, walnut chunk, and eternity. All flavors are made with local farm-fresh ingredients, making for a sophisticated taste of Vermont not captured since the Americans retook Fort Ticonderoga by eating it.
