During the cold and snowy month of February, 2019 we were baking a batch of homemade brownies and decided to try some alternate recipes. We had often talked about the idea of a brownie shop after driving around Omaha and seeing only cupcake, cookie, and donut shops. We found that it was difficult to find a good brownie, as well as any shop that only specialized in them, and who doesn’t like a good brownie? We love made-from-scratch brownies with real butter, real vanilla, and other quality ingredients. Later that month after talking with several friends we decided to host a “tasting” to include an assortment of brownies and several fresh and home-made frostings and toppings.
The “tasting” was a great success, and we decided to continue with some more tastings as well as book a booth at several farmers markets during the summer months. These early gatherings allowed us to tweak some of the recipes as well as add some items that were most requested. By late summer we had narrowed down our base brownie types as well as the most popular frostings and toppings.
On November 12th, 2019 we opened our first Brownie Bar retail shop! Located at 1217 Leavenworth St. we will be open Tuesday through Saturday. At this location we bake all the brownies for the shop as well as those that are shipped out of town and the ones for all Events and Special Occasions.
