Baking: Get festive with Ely's Gourmet Brownies
Star of this year's festive range? The new 12 Days of Christmas gift box. . .
As anyone who’s ever eaten a Gourmet Brownie can attest, they’re in a class of their own. Achieving that magical combination of crispy top, gooey middle and chocolatey hit, Ely-based husband and wife team Kirstyn and Andrew Samalionis won a coveted Great Taste Awards star for their classic recipe, the basis of every bake they produce.
Their seasonal specials are always much anticipated, and star of the Christmas show this year will be the new 12 Days of Christmas gift box. Explains Kirstyn: “We decided to steer away from the advent calendar idea and produce a decadent box that can be gifted and opened on Christmas Day.What follows is a taste exploration across 12 different flavours, from the more classic triple chocolate to rum and raisin, Christmas pudding, speculoos. . .” Individually wrapped, the brownies have a 17-day shelf life “and therefore they will be delicious from slice one to slice 12,” she adds.
Two festive flavours will be added to the core menu: Christmas Chocolate Orange, finished with a slice of Terry’s (“Who doesn’t love a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in the bottom of their Christmas stocking?”), and Toblerone Cracker, topped with a whole Toblerone and a shimmer of edible gilding (“Our Toblerone Extreme brownie has been hugely popular for the last couple of years, so we have given it a Christmas makeover”).
Gourmet Brownie’s signature selection box, which comes in four and eight-slice sizes and can be sent through the post, can be customised by choosing a bespoke flavour selection and adding a Christmas card, complete with personal message.
The Gourmet Brownie Christmas collection goes live in the web shop at gourmetbrownie.co.uk any day. Visit the site for more details and pricing.
