Fudge Yeah: These Brownies Are Divine and You Can Get Them Delivered
These bars will definitely quell that chocolate craving.
(SPOT.ph) Brownies are one of those baked goods that appear plain at first glance, coming as an easy-to-eat bar and being made with basic ingredients (like chocolate or cocoa powder, eggs, butter, and the like). But when done right, they can be topnotch treats that give you a satisfying dose of chocolate in a chewy, fudgy format. If you've been missing getting your brownie fix, you'll be happy to know that a number of bakeshops and purveyors deliver their stellar versions—our favorites among which we've rounded up on this list.
You can order from these shops in Manila for when the brownie craving hits:
Wildflour's Brownies (P550/box of six) are our favorite in Manila for their full-bodied chocolate flavor and chewy-fudgy body, complete with a shiny, paper-thin crust. You can order them from Wildflour's website, along with their other winning baked goods like Ensaymada (P780/box of six) and Salted Chocolate Cake (P2,000/two layers, P3,000/three layers).
For orders, check out Wildflour's website.
Xocolat is known for their chocolatey treats, and no dessert better exemplifies this than their Original Sin Gourmet Brownies (P105). They come as thick, three-inch squares with a satisfying bittersweetness seemingly bolstered by coffee. You can order from Xocolat either through Foodpanda or by giving them a call.
For orders, find Xocolat on Foodpanda or contact 8929-4186 or 0956-384-6204.
Banhof.ph makes more than just great chocolate chip cookies; their Brownies (P300/dozen) are well worth a try, too. Each brownie satisfies chocolate hankerings full-force with their thin crinkly crust, dark chocolate base, and chunks of milk chocolate. You can try them for yourself by filling out their order form, and paying via BDO or BPI bank transfer.
Bucky's claims that their signature pastry—the Original Bucky (P300/half-box, P500/whole box)—is not a brownie. Whatever it is, it still satisfies just like one (perhaps even more), thanks to its deep, husky, cocoa-heavy profile and dense yet ultra-chewy consistency. You can order it from their website as ready-to-eat slabs, or even as a DIY mix (P450/good for nine bars) you can bake yourself at home.
For orders, check out Bucky's website.
