Thanks to Tryazon for providing the Brownie Bites to facilitate this party and post.
Brownie Brittle: have you heard of it? I’ll admit I hadn’t, until I saw it on the site of Tryazon, a blogging company I work with. Then, as often happens, it was on my radar, and I spotted it on the shelves of my local Kroger. I’ve also seen it at Walgreen’s.
Tryazon asked if I’d host a party to introduce friends to Brownie Brittle. Sure!
- Sheila G. Mains (“Sheila G”) was laid off in mid-life and tried making ends meet by baking brownies. Her brownies were later discovered by a chef at Disney.
- She invented Brownie Brittle in the ’90s because of her personal love of the corner brownie pieces. She launched it as its own product called “Brownie Crisps” — but it flopped. She renamed it and relaunched it with new packaging in 2011. The product took off from there!
- Brownie Brittle has won several awards and has won the star of approval from Hollywood celebs. Weight Watchers has named it a “Healthy Snack,” calling it “the health-conscious chocoholic’s dream come true” (it’s only 120 calories per ounce, and trust me, it does not taste like a diet snack).
Where to best introduce friends to Brownie Bites? I decided the group at bonsai club, which daughter #3 and I are part of, would be perfect. I brought some Brownie Bites for them to try, and also baked Mint Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle Sugar Cookies. I must say that these cookies were truly decadent. I doubled the recipe, and still, they did not last long. I thought that the mint green color would go well with all the green bonsai trees in the room 🙂 .
It’s hard to drag these talented folks away from their plants. But, I did succeed in luring them to the refreshment table, where they all enjoyed the delicious snacks.
Have you tried Brownie Brittle? If not, you’re missing something. Don’t be fooled by the “brittle” name. I’m not a fan of peanut brittle (just too hard), but these are more the texture of graham crackers. And you have to admit, the alliteration is cute.
