At first, the Aztecs punished their enemies by pouring hot chocolate down their throats, until the proud warriors found out their foes actually liked it and promptly switched to molten gold. Relive the pleasure of those lucky few conquistadors with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a half-dozen assorted chocolate brownies at Yaletown Brownies Bakery (an $18 value).
The assorted brownies include:
- Three signature brownies
- Three chocolate-glaze brownies<p>
Wielding ingredients free from preservatives, Yaletown Brownies Bakery’s expert dessert crew crafts small batches of gourmet brownies from scratch each day. For the signature brownie, baking mavens melt, mix, and forge the condensed cake with Belgian chocolate and walnuts to create a moist, dense dessert that can double as a tackling dummy for gingerbread men. Cocoa-packed swirls decorate the icing cap of a chocolate-glaze brownie, and each edible parallelogram greets the eyes of potential eaters from inside an elegant presentation box. Customers can store their brownies for up to a week in the fridge or 60 days in the freezer, granting them the power to parcel out the treats over the coming weeks or save them until the end of their family’s winter hibernation. Yaletown Brownies Bakery can adjust recipes to match dietary restrictions upon request.
