Brownie & Cookie Gifts

The Sweet Gift That’s Always Appreciated


Warning: These photos may make you very hungry for a gourmet brownie or cookie. Fortunately, you can order any of them online right now. To take your eyes off of the photos, read the History Of The Brownie. Visit our Cookies and Brownies Section for more product reviews.


Buddy Biscuits (This One ONLY Is For The Dog):
Gingerbread Dog Treats


We’re starting out with something for Fido, but we promise that the other seven treats on this page are gourmet people food. These “gingerbread” men are corn-free, made in the USA from USA-grown ingredients and, yes, flavored with ginger. The box is made from recycled paper and is recyclable, so it’s a green gift, too. That’s something to howl about!

Shouldn’t Fido have gingerbread for the holidays, too?


Charleston Cookie Company:
Candy Cane Brownies


Only available during the holiday season, these Candy Cane Brownies will please kids and their folks. Handmade dark chocolate brownies are laced with just the right hint of peppermint—not overpowering, but delightful. The three-inch squares can be shared to extend the treat. And they make a fabulous dessert with a scoop of ice cream and a dab of chocolate sauce. Nicely boxed. Read our review of Charleston Cookie Company, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

Mari’s New York Brownies:
Sophisticated Mini Brownies With Maxi Flavor

What a terrific idea: brownies downsized to two bites, yet so rich and flavorful that one is all you need. In flavors like Blonde Bombshell, Caramel Sea Salt, Classic, Coconut, Heat, Thai Coffee, and seasonal flavors Cranberry Cognac and Sugar & Spice. Each flavor is so very good, you’ll be grateful that three Mari’s equals one regular brownie, so you can have them all. Read more about Mari’s New York Brownies, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

Grand Marnier Cocktail Macaroons

While famed patisserie Payard calls these delights “edible cocktails,” we think of them as fantastic macarons (the French spelling—see the history of macaroons). The macaroons are sandwiched with a divine buttercream made of Grand Marnier and other spirits, to create Grand Cosmo, Grand Margarita, Grand Mojito and Orange Crush-inspired flavors. While some revelers line up shots at the bar, we would polish off a dozen of these in a hedonistic spree. Or we could restrain ourselves and enjoy this gift one (or two) wonderful macaroons at a time. With the corresponding cocktail or a shot of Grand Marnier on the side, of course. A lovely booklet with the corresponding Grand Marnier cocktail recipes comes with the macaroons.

Ruby Et Violette:
Posh Brownies

These brownies and their gorgeous packaging are so luxe, you could bring them as a house gift to Buckingham Palace. Each is chock full of fine Callebaut chocolate chips, the signature of this artisan baker. All of the flavors are terrific: Blondie, Classic Chocolate, Lemon White, Incomparable (caramel, toffee, peanut butter), Mimi’s Molasses and Strawberry Champagne (which has gold leaf on the top!).

Sugardaddy’s Sumptuous Sweeties: Dark Citrus Brownies

We love the combination of bittersweet chocolate and orange (think chocolate-dipped orange peel). So it’s no surprise that we flipped for this seasonal flavor from Sugardaddy’s, daddy of the round Brunette and Blonde Sweeties (a.k.a. brownies and blondies). If you don’t like chocolate and orange, there’s a seasonal Harvest Blonde (pumpkin spice) and eight year-round flavors that are guaranteed to please. Read more about Sugardaddy’s Sumptuous Sweeties.
