Brownies! Brownies! Brownies! for a sugar fix and hang-out spot
Late-night bakeries and dessert shops are all the rage across the country. And in Utah, they are an especially big hit as they give locals an alternative to loud clubs or packed bars in which to hang out with friends.
At Brownies! Brownies! Brownies!, which opened in October 2018, the late-night scene is just as appealing as the treats.
Here, twinkling patio lights illuminate the lot at the Sugar House eatery, inviting patrons to indulge in fresh treats until 9 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends. The real party occurs on Friday nights, when a different food truck each week is on hand to offer even more eats, and customers are welcome to dine inside the shop or outside on the patio.
In colder weather, a fire pit and blankets are available to keep guests warm. “I want people to feel comfortable when they’re at my shop,” owner and pastry chef Molly Kohrman says.
While the bakery is new to the food scene, Kohrman, who previously worked at a nonprofit, already plans on giving back to the community.
Each year, she plans to donate a percentage of the company’s proceeds to a local charity. In 2019, the charity of choice for Brownies’ first year will be the Spice Kitchen Incubator, a program that helps refugee and disadvantaged entrepreneurs develop food businesses.
What makes the shop’s brownies unique are its signature flavors. Two brownies form a sandwich around a creamy filling, which is then finished with a decadent topping. Flavors—such as fudge, churro, raspberry, mint, snickers and German chocolate—rotate weekly. Prices range from $3 for an individual brownie to $30 for a dozen.
Kohrman suggests trying the cookie-dough brownie, made with a rich chocolate brownie, filled with whipped ganache and topped with a scoop of sweet-cream cookie dough and mini chocolate chips.
Brownies and cookies?
If you thought Brownies! Brownies! Brownies! couldn’t get any sweeter, you’d be mistaken. Here, vegan and gluten-free options are available, plus ice cream (with brownie bites) is sold by the pint.
