Sweet Muse: Review and Giveaway

You know what I love to receive as a birthday gift?  Chocolate. Anniversary?  Chocolate. Christmas?  Chocolate. Just because it’s Wednesday?  Chocolate! See a theme here?

So you can imagine that when I got the opportunity to review the new Brownie Buttons at Sweet Muse, I was in heaven (did I mention they are chocolate?)!  The Chief Muse, Laura Siner, started baking as a way to relax and wash away the tensions of a hectic New York City.  She busily created many varieties of gourmet brownies and began sharing them with her peers in the New York theater community.  Soon she found herself taking orders and Sweet Muse was born!

From the website:

Super moist and with rich chocolate flavor, Sweet Muse gourmet fudge brownies are baked entirely from scratch, using only the finest ingredients — premium dark chocolate, sweet creamery butter, and fresh eggs. Then, fresh from the oven, each fudgy brownie is individually wrapped to maintain maximum freshness and flavor.

You just cannot wrap your mind around all the wonderful flavors that are available.  A few that make my mouth water are Turtle, Deep Dark Double Fudge and Pecan Toffee.  The brownies can be purchased in a variety of combinations, the Buddy Box which contains 2 brownies,  an 8 piece Brownie Gift Tin, or even Heart Shaped brownies!

Can’t decide on a favorite flavor?  Laura has whipped up another delicious creation with her Brownie Button Box.  This set allows you to sample several flavors in bite sized portions.  Packaged in a cute box with red ribbon, this sampler would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift!


Sweet Muse was nice enough to send me my very own Brownie Button box to sample.  As I opened the box, the sweet aroma of chocolate forced me to dive in and start tasting!  My box included one fudge, two double fudge, two pecan and toffee, peppermint candy crunch, turtle (cashew and caramel), hazelnut, peanut butter chip, walnut, and toffee bar.  Like I said, I am a serious chocoholic, so the double fudge brownie button was my favorite.  You can definitely tell these brownies are homemade!

Believe it or not, I actually shared my brownie buttons with Lily who was more than happy to help review the product.  She loved the peanut butter chip!  In her words, it was “yuuuuuuuuumy!”
