Recently I have been going to a few birthdays and witnessing a change in the humble cake. I am not complaining, it seems the moreish, yet bite-sized treats that have taken over are delicious brownies! The best in New Zealand would have to be The Brownie Company New Zealand (NZ).
The lady behind the company is Hailey, and she has been successfully running her boutique home business for over 5 years. Her passion for baking started when she was a young girl, in England, where she remembers crafting butterfly cakes with her grandmother. From there, 2009 saw her win an English cooking competition where she was crowned Young Chef of the Year. Since moving to New Zealand in 2014, her passion for baking continued and requests from friends family and word of mouth began for her brownies. The rest, as they say, is history.
The Brownie Company NZ has an assortment of brownies on the menu (and on special occasions, such as weddings, Hailey also makes slices and cakes) ranging from Traditional Brownies to Triple Chocolate, to Blondies, Mighty Oreo Brownies and Peanut Butter Brownies; just to name a few.
The Brownie Company NZ delivers across Christchurch, right to your front door. I had this experience when I selected some of their delicious Mighty Oreo Brownies which I enjoyed with a coffee on my Saturday morning. The brownies were decadent, chocolatey, fudgy, and fresh. Teamed with a coffee and whacked in the microwave for just 30 seconds gave them that nice warm brownie feel. The brownies are packed in a box and in quantities of 12. These can always be sliced to make mini brownies, which is what I decided to do with some of the Biscoff Brownies that were delivered to our office for a morning tea.
The best part about The Brownie Company NZ is that they mix up their menu with some limited edition stock. They are also present at many of the markets, fairs and festivals around Canterbury too. Some limited-edition options that have graced their Facebook page have been: White Chocolate Twix Brownies and White Chocolate Caramelised Toffee Pop. Hopefully, these may one day become a staple.

Brownies, cakes and slices are delivered by hand right to your front door, and all packaging used is recyclable which is an added bonus. The Brownie Company NZ is working on a new website which will list over twenty plus options for all taste buds. This also means that brownie lovers will see New Zealand wide delivery occur which means people all over the country people can enjoy these brownies.

The Brownie Company NZ currently takes orders through their Facebook Page, or by email to email@example.com, I would highly recommend giving them a go. They also cater to vegans, gluten-free peeps, and those that prefer their brownies free from refined sugar. Next time a birthday or office morning tea is on the agenda, give The Brownie Company NZ a call.
