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 $15, you get a six-brownie sampler pack with shipping included from Vermont Brownie Company (a $29 value).
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 creations 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 chèvre, espresso dulce de leche, peanut butter, maple-toffee crunch, and walnut chunk. 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.
