Top Pick Of The Week

Mari's New York Brownies

Mari’s New York classic brownies are available with or without walnuts. Or try one of the other eight flavors. Shown in photo, clockwise from bottom: Blonde Bombshell, Coconut, Sugar & Spice, Cranberry Cognac and Thai Coffee. Photography by Emily Chang | THE NIBBLE.

WHAT IT IS: Gourmet chocolate brownies and blondies in “petite” sizes, so you can indulge without guilt.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: The fine assortment of flavors made of top-quality ingredients are portion-controlled, and we love that! Now, a brownie a day can keep the doctor away—assuming your doctor prescribes seratonin reuptake inhibitors.
WHY WE LOVE IT: We can fit these brownies into a diet; but more importantly, they’re a perfect dessert with coffee when, after a big dinner, you want dessert but don’t have much room for it. They’re a great snack too, just the right size.

Seasonal Gourmet Brownie Flavors

As if the signature flavors weren’t satisfying enough, each season Mari tempts us with more flavors. For the holidays, there are two:

Cranberry Cognac

Another seasonal flavor, Cranberry Cognac offers a more subtle fruit note than Cherry Bomb. De facto, the cranberry is less sweet, but the result is equally charming.

Sugar And Spice

This pretty brownie looks like it’s been sprinkled with magic fairy dust (but it’s sanding sugar*). This light and elegant brownie, flavored with gingerbread spice, is a favorite.

*Sanding sugar is granulated sugar processed to have larger granules that sparkle. The large surface area of the granule also makes the sugar appear less sweet (like rock sugar). See the different types of sugar.

Cherry Bomb

We also had the opportunity to taste summer’s special flavor. If you didn’t get your fill of lush summer cherries, this cherry brownie is the bomb. The cherries are soaked in cognac; sweet, red cherry flavor bursts forth, to excellent effect.

Gingerbread Brownie
Sugar and spice, and everything just perfect. If you love gingerbread and brownies, buy lots of these! Photo by Daniela Cuevas.

In addition to these seasonal flavors, there are others that cure the winter doldrums, celebrate Valentine’s Day and welcome spring (as if one needed an excuse to place an order).

Our idea of a great evening of fun is splitting brownies in half with a particularly deserving special friend or dividing them into quarters to share with the family. Or if one must give them away, Mari’s New York Brownies are perfect for just about any occasion, and will be devoured in a New York minute.
