It seems like the new rage is brownie packaging. Why should anyone be surprised, after all it is a type of chocolate with plenty of luscious munchies included. As the saying goes, who does not adore chocolate? Brownies make fantastic gifts for all circumstances, as they are not the usual run-of-the-mill gift. Moreover, it is a food item, and who does not like getting a food gift.

Points to take into account when ordering Brownie packaging:

• Types of Ingredients – Find out what types of ingredients are used? They should be preservative-free and all-natural.

• Size – Find out the proportions? The standard size is 3×3.

• Weight – Make sure they have some bulk to them. The standard weight is approximately 4 oz. per brownie.

• Flavors – A company specializing in gourmet brownies should offer at least 6 – 10 flavors. When ordering you should have the options of picking certain flavors or opting for an assortment with no added charges.

• Freshness – They should be made the same day they are shipped and individually bagged to preserve the freshness.

• Packaging – At least 3 different packaging choices should be available. For example a gift box, gift basket or gift tin.

• Note Card – You should be able to provide a message with your gift at no extra charge.

Shipping and Brownie packaging

• Shipping Protection – Find out what steps are being taken to safeguard your gourmet brownies while shipping? Packaging peanuts and bubble wrap should be used inside the shipping box for cushioning and protection.

• Shipping Choices – Local delivery and nationwide shipping should be offered. Make sure to ask if this is included in the brownie price or is it an additional expense. Most of the time shipping is an additional cost.

• Tracking Number – If your gift is being shipped make sure you are emailed the tracking number so you can stay up to date on the shipment.

• Price – You definitely want to get your money’s worth. The standard price for a dozen Brownie packaging is $30.

• Guarantee – There should be a money-back guarantee if for any reason the customer or recipient is not happy with the gift.

There is no question about it, gourmet brownies are the in-thing and they are appropriate for any situation. So the next time you need a special and considerate gift, brownies should be your first choice.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a love for two things: movies and food. I also have a habit of combining the two things. In fact, I find that most of Brownie packaging is inspired by my favorite movies.

Deliciously chewy brownies

This article’s recipe is for deliciously chewy brownies with a crunchy crust of an oat mixture with brown sugar. I have named these brownies after a movie made in the hay day of movies. Its title is “The Big Sleep.” It is a great detective film featuring the tough Humphrey Bogart and the tough and beautiful Lauren Bacall.

The dark and sweet fudge brownie inside reminds me of the dark side of the movie. After all, it is about a missing girl and a murder. It is unusually dark for such a sweet and delicate era it was made in (so goes the sweetness of the brownie in it self).

The crust of the brownie

The crust of the brownie is a whole different story. It represents the core of the movie which is the relationship between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacal. As you may know, in real life they were together until Bogart passed away. To me they go together like M and M (a phrase we all used as kids). A perfect pair and, therefore: we have the M & M baking bits to represent it.

Also in the crust is oat which, along with the brown sugar, gives you that at home flavor. It is hearty and tasteful, which reminds us of the heart of the movie. The warmth and goodness of the “good characters” and how they relate is what inspired the taste of oatmeal in the brownies.

Not only is the following recipe inspired by “Brownie packaging,” but it will probably put you into a diabetic coma if you are diabetic. It is what my family calls The Big Sleep. Be warned, this recipe is a definite no-no for diabetics. Otherwise, feel free to dive in. These are terrific brownies with a touch of something special baked in.

Here’s the recipe:

“They’ll Put You Into A Big Sleep Oatmeal Brownies”*

Ingredients: ½ cup packed brown guar, 1 package family size brownie mix, 1 and ½ cups quick-cooking oats, ½ cup chopped walnuts, ½ cup melted butter, 1 cup M & M miniature baking bits, ½ tsp baking soda, ¼ cup all-purpose flour, and ¼ cup whole-wheat flour.

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2) In a small mixing bowl mix the oats, M & Ms, flours, sugar, walnuts, baking soda, and butter. Set aside one cup of it. Pat the rest of the mixture into a greased 15 x 10 baking pan. Prepare to the package and then spread over the crust. Sprinkle with the 1 cup of set aside oat mixture.

2) Bake at 350 degrees for about 28 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars.

3) Enjoy on top of some deliciously smooth and creamy ice cream. That’ll put you into an even bigger Big Sleep.

*Base of the recipe was inspired from Taste of Home and then I molded it from there.

More about Brownie Packaging

I am always on the lookout for foods so good that you utter a little moan of ecstasy when you taste them. Here is the recipe for one of those foods. The first time I tasted this delightful brownie was at my baby shower. Now, admittedly, pregnant women tend to have a passionate affair with food (for some of us, it’s more of a love-hate thing), but this brownie recipe has stood the test of time and remains incredibly delicious and decadent.

Brownie packaging, I was turned off by the idea of using whipped topping (I have my moments of food snobbery). The topping redeemed itself by teaming up with white chocolate. DO NOT use that fake white “bark;” real white chocolate is mostly cocoa butter and imparts a richness that can’t be found with those substitute “whites.” Be sure to follow package directions when melting the white chocolate. It can be a little tricky, and if you are not careful or overheat the chocolate, you can have a useless glob of chunky cocoa butter. Another article in the Incredibly Good Recipes series will address this issue.
