Ruth's Brownies Review and Giveaway!!



I think I've said this before, but I really like brownies! There's nothing like a rich, fudgy brownie and a glass of milk when you want a snack. I was recently given the opportunity to review some brownies from Ruth's Brownie Kitchen, and I really enjoyed it! I chose the Walnut Extra Fudgy Brownies, and wow are they good! As I was opening the package, I could smell the chocolate...talk about a wonderful scent!  They came packaged in a very pretty pink box.



A very pleasing package!

The brownies came in the morning we were headed to Chicago, so they made for a great snack on the drive! I handed out pieces to everyone in the van, and they were quickly begging for more! (Especially my Dad...he really liked these brownies!)


The brownies themselves are huge! One square is about equal to 2 squares the way I usually cut brownies. The brownies were, indeed, extra fudgy...just perfect. They are made with 3 different Valrhona chocolates, for an extra rich taste. And of course, the crowning touch is the toasted, sugared English Walnuts buried inside!
