About half an hour ago, we received a box of handmade brownies.

At the time of writing, there is not a single one left.

The author looks not unlike Bruce Bogtrotter.

This blog is a homage to the chef, entrepreneur and caramel alchemist Rosie Yates, the founder of new brownie – themed initiative, Cocoa May.

Rosie trained at both the Orchards Cookery School and Ballymaloe in Ireland, and worked as a chef in London before moving back to Suffolk to set up Cocoa May. Since then she’s been developing a range of brownies, all handmade, aiming to cater for everyone but never compromise on quality or flavour – and wow.

We were lucky enough to sample the ‘original’ (deliciously gooey, gluten free, seriously rich) and the salted caramel (just the right amount of crunch to the surface caramel, delectable chocolatey goop beneath) and take my word for it, they were absolutely fantastic.

The original brownies are gluten free, the sticky date bars are vegan friendly and the salted caramel bars can be made with or without nuts. They can also make up a balanced diet if you have one in each hand.

Right now, surrounded by vats of chocolate sauce, Rosie is developing coconut bars, dark chocolate and ginger cakes and children’s treats. She can be contacted via her website and social media channels (below) to discuss delivery options and bespoke commissions.
