Oh my gosh, have you tried Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle? Well, a few months back, I found it at Costco and picked up a bag… mind you it was the very large Costco sized bag. I brought it home to my family to see what we all thought about it and I loved it as did my children and hubby. I have to admit, when it comes to brownies, I don’t normally get so excited for those made by others because I’m kind of partial when it comes to things I make myself… but these – OMG!
So what makes these so delicious, so unique, so “need to have”? Well, if you are a lover of goodies and have a sweet tooth like myself, then you may have heard of Sheila G before. In 1992, Sheila G Mains (aka Sheila G) took her family recipe for fudge brownies and turned it into a thriving business. I tried my first Sheila G brownie at Walt Disney World in Orlando about 10 years ago… it was a very yummy, rich and filled with chocolate haven that is so dense you want to put it down, but so delicious, you can’t bare to let it go. I never forgot the name after that and when I seen the bag of Brownie Brittle in Costco, I had to see if it was as great as the original brownie I had tried so many years ago.
So – how did the Brownie Brittle come about? Well, Sheila was quite fond of the crispy edges of the brownie – I’ll admit, it’s also my favorite part too and wanted to create the same thing but instead of having to scrape by on just a few crispy edges, she wanted to have a lot of it. After some work, Sheila figured it out and the Brownie Brittle was born.
Now I asked in my title… Is it as delicious as they say? Oh hell yes. It really is like eating a chocolate chip brownie cookie… crispy like a cookie, but not dry like a crispy cookie tastes sometimes. I just can’t explain it – it really is like eating the crispy edges of a brownie. The brownie brittle comes in four different yummy flavors – Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Salted Caramel and Toffee Crunch. Now let’s be honest… all four flavors have definitely caught my eye and I can’t wait to taste the other three. The whole line of Brownie Brittle just screams “Honey” because it includes all of my favorite flavors. Now I’m not going to lie, it’s addicting… so my biggest suggestion is to eat in moderation… lol, if you dare.
The prices range from store to store, but you can usually find them at most grocery stores, Walmart and of course, Costco from time to time. Brownie Brittle’s website offers recipes on their website: http://browniebrittle.com/ which I haven’t had the chance to try yet, but if you are looking to just snack on these that works too. Our favorite way is to top our brownie brittle off with our favorite ice cream – delish!
Note: Please be sure to use your own discretion when snacking on these… it can be very easy to consume an entire bag in one sitting. lol – Enjoy!
