LOVE Brownies

Hey everyone :)

If you've been following my blog then you'll know I love baking and everything to do with baking and cooking too. When Love Brownies popped up on my Instagram feed and I had a little wander through their Instagram - I followed them straight away - from the amazing brownie flavours and the pastel-esque coloured packaging I was hooked! 

I was really supposed to wait until I get paid at the end of the month but I was bored the other night so I did a bit of online shopping ... well okay ... lots of online shopping. This includes Lush's new Valentine's range - post soon, these amazing brownies and a few things on Amazon - help me and my bank account!

First of all, the packaging was amazing - we all know I love a little bit of packaging! The brownies came inside a lovely little box and inside wrapped in some gift wrap. I like little touches like that - make you feel special and not just like someone has chucked something in a box, stuck an address label on it and gave it to Royal Mail.

Love Brownies started in a little bakery in Ilkley in West Yorkshire. When describing the area they live in it sounds just like home in Scotland - rugged hills and thick woods and purple heather. Almost all of their ingredients are local to the bakery in Ilkley bar the cocoa as it doesn't grow well here - understandable. 

I'm one of those people who love a gooey brownie - straight out the oven with some cold vanilla ice cream - in other words, I'm picky and hard to impress but these brownies - wow! They seem a bit crunchy when you first bite into them but as soon as you've got a mouthful they melt in your mouth and are so soft and moist (I normally hate that word but I have to use it here). I don't like to admit this but I nearly ate the whole bag in one sitting - I had to stop myself. 

I picked up this bag from their website HERE and it was £8. I think P&P was a couple of pounds too. Well worth it - let me know in the comments below if you've tried them.
