Does anything give more comfort than a stack of brownies? These come from BAKED, where owners Matt and Renato are obsessed with regional desserts of America. They’ve spent much of their time scouting bakeries, chocolate shops, coffee houses and used book stores around the USA. Both left the world of advertising to pursue their passion. Order a 6-pack for the party, and it will come in a gift box with: 2 Deep Dark (the classic), 2 Sweet & Salty (infused with caramel and fleur de sel), and 2 Brown Sugar Blondie (classic blondie with the deep flavors of dark brown sugar). $23. Order online or visit their shops in Red Hook, 359 Van Brunt Street, Bklyn, or in Manhattan at 279 Church Street. bakednyc.com
