Kiss and Bake Up: Tasty treats delivered to your door

Kiss and Bake Up: Tasty treats delivered to your door

The first thing I have to say about Kiss and Bake Up before I get into anything else is I love their name! It just makes me smile.

Anyway, on to the good stuff.

There are two things you should know about me which will explain why I was thrilled about this opportunity.

Firstly, I love the idea of baking but two things usually put me off: weighing out the ingredients (yawn) and cleaning up afterwards (no thanks).

The other thing is that I LOVE a tasty treat! I will jump at any excuse to have one. Hit a Twitter milestone? Get a cake. Not feeling great? Bar of chocolate and a cup of tea. I know, I know, it doesn’t make for a healthy lifestyle but it does make for a happier one in my case.

The rise of companies delivering treats to your door suits me perfectly. Kiss and Bake Up is one such company, specialising in brownies. They are freshly baked to order and then sent to you.

Or, if you want to treat somebody else (which is always nice to do!), you can do that instead and include a message to make somebody’s day.Β Their arrival certainly made mine!

I had four flavours to choose from: original, Maltesers, orange and salted caramel.

Other flavours they offer are cherry, peanut butter, Oreo, turkish delight and mint.

The two I decided to try for this post were the original one, and the Maltesers one. I’m going to share the others with Neal. Maybe.

When I opened the plastic packaging, the first thing I noticed was the smell.

Oh. my. goodness.

You know when you smell something and you just know it’s going to taste delicious? That.

Kiss and Bake Up original ingredients

The ingredients and best before date are on stickers on the back. If you wanted gluten free brownies, the Kiss and Bake Up team are happy to discuss your requirements via email!

Sadly, since getting braces, a lot of my favourite treats are off the table because they’re too difficult to eat, or run the risk of damaging my brace.

So, the fact these brownies were super soft was a huge plus. It meant I could nibble into them and enjoy. Yay!

I expected the two flavours I chose to be similar, but they were actually quite different. The original brownie had a very rich chocolate flavour, which was good for a chocoholic like me, but it might not be to everyone’s taste.

Then, in true Maltesers style, this one was a little lighter. Of the two, the Maltesers one was my favourite. It was a little square of heaven.

I’m looking forward to trying the other two flavours, probably alongside a nice cup of tea!

At the moment, you can only choose one flavour to be sent, rather than the selection box I was sent for samples. It costs Β£20, including posting and packaging, for 16 brownies. Alternatively, you can order it as a slab so you can cut it any way you want (for example, a big bit for you, and a slither for someone else).

I think this would be a great treat to indulge in for a birthday party or social event. I would have loved these for the week my family were visiting, but I can have them all to myself so I’m not complaining.

A brownie wouldn’t usually be my treat of choice (I’m a cupcake kind of girl) but maybe I simply haven’t been eating the right ones.

Now, thanks to Kiss and Bake Up, I’ve had a brownie how it’s supposed to be. Made with care, soft and sweet, and just enough to hit the spot. I’d love to try the peanut butter flavour in the future!

So, next time you’ve got something to celebrate – whether it’s big or small, for you or for somebody else – why not give them a try?

If you’ve already tried them, which flavour is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

Kiss and Bake Up were kind enough to send these brownies to me as a gift. However, all thoughts and views expressed here are my own.

    Those look absolutely delicious!
    I love the idea of getting treats delivered to your door – and you’re right, it might not make for a totally healthy lifestyle, but it definitely will make it happier 😊
    I love that there’s so many delicious flavours to choose from as well. It’s going to be hard to choose which flavour to try first!
    Love this post, thanks for sharing πŸ’œ

      Exactly, and happiness is what it’s all about. I’ve just had the salted caramel one with a cup of tea and that was really nice, too! Thank you for reading, Kelly! 😊

    Wow!! My mouth is watering just looking at these, brownies are my favourite! This is such a fabulous post Ruth, your photography is absolutely gorgeous! I’m also a fan of Maltesers too so I imagine that flavour tastes delicious. I’ve never tried a Turkish Delight brownie but now I think I need too! I’ve been lucky enough to get a Kiss And Bake Up box sent to me too and your post has made me even more excited to receive it now! Thank you for sharing and enjoy your tasty treats, I’m craving a cuppa and a brownie now! <3 xx

      Thank you so much, Bexa! I must admit, I was really happy with how the pictures came out for this post. I’m quite intrigued by the Turkish delight flavour, too. Looking forward to hearing what you think of them! πŸ˜€ xx

    How amazing do these look?! It can be quite tricky to cook a brownie with the perfect consistency so ordering them in sounds like a great shout to me hehe! I’d love to try the Maltesers variety, that look delish! It would be a tough job to get me to share these!

      I’ve never tried baking brownies, but I doubt I could do as good a job. Even other bought ones I’ve had have never tasted as good as these! It was hard to share them, but I let Neal have a couple πŸ˜‰ xx

    I absolutely love the idea of this, these look super yummy and it sounds so convenient! I’d be interested to know if they’re branching out into vegan brownies any time soon… great post Ruth!

      It would be great if they do! I’d imagine if they find enough demand for it, they’d consider it! πŸ™‚ x

    Ohhhhh, Ruth! I am so excited and thrilled to read this review! These brownies look absolutely amazing, I think Malteser and Peanut would be my choices but TBH, I adore brownies so I’d be happy with anything, haha. Your photos are fab, you can really see how soft and melting the brownies are. I love the idea of a slab so you only need to share a slither too, genius πŸ™‚ fab review, so pleased you got these brownies, it couldn’t happen to a lovelier person! xxx

      Thank you so much, Lisa! You have really helped with my confidence in going for blogging opportunities by giving me nudges so it’s fair to say… I probably wouldn’t have got my hands on these treats if it wasn’t for you! πŸ’œ xx

        Aw, that’s so sweet of you 😍 I’m going to look forward to lots more fab reviews from now on! Xxx

    This is so fun! I love sweet treats so having them delivered to me would be a dream. I would try the Oreo flavor first for sure!

    Ohhh I put on three pounds just reading this! I wonder if anyone will send me birthday cakes on Thursday? Nah probably not πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ they look fab and I agree my go to cake wouldn’t be a brownie but mmmm damn the photos look amazing

      They should! A birthday without a cake is a waste πŸ˜‚

    ohhh wow. Look at them!! I loveeee the idea of sending these to people as gifts! I’m thinking that these would be a perfect gift for new mamas and Khadra’s lol. Makes a real nice alternative to flowers I think. Also, GF options are so handy. My husband is GF so that’s perfect.

      Oooh, that’s a great idea for new mums! πŸ˜€ I completely agree about them being a good alternative to flowers, and something a bit different to show people you care. xx

    This was a bad post to read several hours before lunch, and by that I mean it was such an excellent post I now want brownies! The salted caramel and turkish delight brownies sound utterly divine, and I’m going to have to resist ordering a box until payday!! (I also love the name, it’s so cute)

    Omg these look heavenly!! My favourite brownie company back in Canada was Carolina’s brownies, they were so freaking good, and I have yet to find anywhere just as good back here in the UK. I will definitely have to try them out!! xx

    Oh wowww!!! This sounds just de-li-cious! I would love to try: original, maltesers, peanuts butter and salty caramel! It sounds like the perfect plan if you have guests one day but you know you won’t have time to bake anything. You order them in advance and tadaaaa! At your door on the day you need themm! πŸ˜€ It sounds awesome! Thank you for sharing!!
    Ps: I love their name as well! It’s as sweet as brownies!! πŸ˜‰
