As it’s Mother’s Day in just a few days, I thought I would share some ideas of products I have tried recently and which I think would make great Mothers’s Day ideas.
The first one is Brownies and I think brownies would make a great alternative to the usual shop bought chocolates.
Of course brownie are one of those foods that need cooking correctly and to perfection or they just don’t taste good. (Did anyone have so called brownies served at school?). I have made them myself a few times and pleased to say they turned out just right, however nothing beats a baked bought brownie like the brownies from this place.
So who are they? Well Brown and Blond are based in Leeds and they make delicious brownies like these.
Brownies in lots of different flavours ans made with lots of nice things such as extra chocolate, nuts and peanut butter. These brownies were amazing and having just one is very filling so I would not advise eating lots of them at once. And just look how chunky they are too.
Just amazingly delicious the way a brownie should be.
I would much prefer brownies for Mother’s Day. Or any day really.
I do love it when a box of tasty treats lands at my door. The most recent being a box of scrumptious brownies from Brownie heaven.
I’m a big fan of brownies and therefore it’s important that they are made just right so they almost melt in the mouth.
Brownies make great gifts too and with Mother’s Day coming up soon a box of brownies is bound to go down very well as a nice treat for mum.
The brownies at Brownie Heaven come in a few different box selections which of course include gluten free. I think the best selection to get is the mixed box which gives the perfect mixture of the best brownies they have.
The brownies are all made using quality Belgian chocolate and Italian unsalted white butter along with a few other ingredients.
I had 8 mixed brownies in my box which included dark chocolate, white chocolate, gluten free, queen of the blondes and a few other flavours that I picked up.
Each one was delicious, perfectly baked and full of gooey yummy lovely mouth watering chocolate goodness. I enjoyed them all. They are also very thigh and chunky. It’s hard to eat more than one t a time because they are also really filling.
The brownies come in boxes and start at about £24.95. Brownie Heaven also sell brownie scotch eggs which also look and sound amazing and a perfect Easter treat.
Well I did not get a single card this Valentine’s Day. I know boo hoo get the tissues out. Oh well who needs a card when you can have a delicious box of tasty brownies delivered instead.
This scrumptious tempting box coincidently arrived Valentines morning. It’s from Serious Treats who seem very serious about their delicious brownies. I received a lovely Lucky dip box containing a mouth watering selection of mixed brownie flavours.
There are 4 individual flavours sold by Serious treats – Rich Choc, Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel and Peppermint. There is also a gluten free brownie variety. The brownies are made with Shipton Mill flour, free range eggs and Montezuma’s 73% cocoa solids.
The brownies can be purchased in boxes of 6, 12, 20 costing £13.50 – £30.00. The smaller box being perfect for individuals and the larger probably better for parties, weddings and offices or if your feeling greedy then buy yourself a big box.
In my box I had 6 brownies in Peanut, Salted Caramel and Rich Choc, 2 of each variety. I’m not a mint lover so probably would not of fancied the peppermint one but everyone’s different. The brownies are big and chunky. Each one individually wrapped with a full description and ingredients. They are just delicious.
Very chocolaty and crumbly and eating one makes me want another and then another. The Peanut butter one is just oozing with crunchy peanut flavour.
The salted caramel contains a thick layer of tempting salted caramel sauce.
And the Rich Choc brownie is their award winning brownie which has won a silver and two gold awards to date.
These delicious brownies are best served with a nice hot cup of tea, any time of the day, but perhaps best when the kiddies are fast asleep in bed so that mean old mummy does not have to share.
Buy the brownies from Serious Treats and a selection of stockists throughout Avon and Somerset.

I was kindly sent a delicious tray of brownies to try.
The brownies arrive in a box tray and there are approximately 15 individual squares in each one.
On Galetas website it says these are the best in London. Well personally I would say they are the best in the UK. I have tried and made several brownies but nothing beats these. They are lovely and very addictive.
These brownies are made with finest 70% cocoa callebaut Belgian chocolate. They are very rich, gooey and chocolate heavenly. Some may call them sickly. I would call them delicious.
The top is like a light slightly hard biscuit layer and the bottom is pure chocolate fudge heaven. The squares are by no means small either, they are very big and chunky.
It is hard to describe in words just how nice these brownies are. A tray of these delights costs £14.95. It works out about a pound per square which is well worth it. Just beware that they are extremely addictive and it’s very tempting to just have another one and then another one.
Looks like I will have to hide the rest from Ryan.
