Mmm, Brownies

A stack of Cosmos Brownies (that's the Coconut Bliss on top).

Brownies may be one of the simplest baked goods to make, but it takes a sure hand to make really, really good ones.

Ones that are a little fudgy, a little cakey and full-on chocolatey.

Cosmos Brownie Company of Kentucky makes them just that way.

The brother-sister team of Karl and Karen Schrecke started making their brownies in their Cosmos Cafe in Bowling Green in 2004. This year, they added online sales, too.

These are hefty brownies the size of your palm. They come in six flavors: Mintalicious, Turtle, Coconut Bliss, Double Fudge, Peanut Butter, and Walnut.

Recently, I received a sample box to try.

The ooey-gooey Turtle brownie.

The Coconut Bliss is like a German chocolate cake in brownie form — topped with lots of chewy, soft coconut. The Peanut Butter one is probably the densest brownie in texture, but still soft, moist and fudgy. If you like your brownies less sweet, this is the one for you, because the peanut butter balances the sugar level nicely. If you’re a sweet-a-holic, you’ll go gah-gah over the Turtle one, which is gooey with chocolate chips, caramel and pecans strewn thickly over the top.

They come individually wrapped for ease.

A box of six brownies is $18.

Sure, you can bake your own. But for times when you want to send an extra sweet gift to someone far away, these are a great option.

  3. 3

    They look and sound amazing!!! Just had breakfast, but now I have brownies on my mind…

  4. 4

    Good to know! I was curious about their company. :)

    Carolyn, I agree that brownies are not easy to make well, that’s for sure!

    Btw, I just changed the name of my blog to “Smoky Wok” and would really appreciate it if you could change the name of my link when you have a minute :) The new url is but the old link shld still work. Thanks in advance!

    OMG those look amazing! Is the one with the nuts the Turtle?

  7. 7

    Yes the one with the nuts and chocolate chips are the Turtles and one of my favorites.

    I agree that with any recipe, one can make it really really good or it can be an equally bad disaster with someone else. A prime example is the good old Aussie barbeque which can be simple and tasty but it can also be an extravaganza if a lot of effort is put into it.

    Some foods are almost always better bought than made for different reasons and these brownies look fantastic, especially when it comes with 6 flavours!

  9. 9

    Oh yes! I know the disappointment of trying a brownie and then tasting a regular chocolate cake! This would definitely solve that problem ;)

    I’d like one peanut butter and one turtle, please! I should not have read this right when I was ready for an afternoon snack.

    GREAT presentation!

    I think I might be missing something in the foodie world this week, is it Coconut day (week)? Coconut is a weakness of mine, I like it in every way, milk, shredded, toasted. Your brownies look lush and decadent.

    i don’t eat brownies very often, but these look so yum!

    Just when I thought it was safe to check out some of your back blogs, I ran into the Brownies – one of the 4 food groups. Now Cherrios isn’t enough for breakfast. Guess I need to do more baking. I’m baking Blue Ribbon Apple pie(double crust with Heath bar streusel under top crust (sour cream crust). No calories here.
