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 of a chewy, chunky, and chocolaty punch to rip the Throwdown title out 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.
