In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 14+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate each day. Happily, even after 5,465+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Brownie Theme Week.
Some of the chocolate brownie items featured this week will be homemade, with a few made with single origin chocolate. Others, like today's chocolate treat, will be purchased off-the-shelf from various retail locations.
Today's chocolate brownie-inspired "Brownie Crisp" offering was from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA).
Each square smelled and tasted like the well-done top layer harvested from a baked chocolate brownie...but these were more uniformly thin and crunchy, like a brownie cookie -- exactly as advertised.
You may not even notice that these crispy, chocolate chip/chunk adorned chocolate squares are also vegan and gluten free (made with a gluten-free flour blend, see Ingredients list below).
