Where can I get a great brownie?

A great brownie is: very chocolatey, dense, nutless, not necessarily chewy but IN NO WAY CAKELIKE, buttery, moist.

Where oh where?

  1. Whole Foods. Be sure to get the ones with the ganache. The ones without it look and taste just like regular brownies (nothing special). The ones with ganache also come in a mint (yum) and cappuccino version, but I prefer the plain old fudge. I defy you to find a more chocolatey, dense, moist brownie!

      I have to second this. The plain ganache ones are pretty much the best brownies out there besides making them yourself.

        I'm skeptical: if it needs ganache to be good, it's not a great brownie.

          Actually, if you peel the ganache off, the brownie is still awesome! But ganache makes everything better. ;) And oddly enough, the plain brownies they sell are not the same recipe at all. Not good.

          WFM's brownies with ganache are like a drug. I can't not eat one in one sitting!

        3. Sounds a bit odd, but my favorite brownie is actually the Soho Glob cookie from various Rosie's locations.

            again a bit odd but Rosies "Chocolate Orgasm" is a great take on a brownie

              1. Quebrada Bakery sells "Emily's Brownies"- very yummy as you describe.
