Nothing comes close to instantly satisfying the taste buds and spurring childhood memories quite like the simple bite of the beloved brownie. We dare say that anyone who boldly deems themselves the ‘ultimate chocoholic’ is unable to resist the temptation of digging into one, even on a full stomach. From chewy to cakey, what’s not to love about these little square treats?
While it may be considered to be a chocolate overload to some, modern ingenuity and adventurous experimentation have led to the incorporation of many complementary flavours — such as peanut butter and durian — to appease the senses of even those that may not be particularly enthusiastic about chocolate.
Whether you choose to gobble it up with a scoop of ice cream or as is, here are eight dessert spots in the Klang Valley to get a taste of the most delectable brownies for yourself and your loved ones.
The Baking Xperiment, Subang Jaya
Understanding the diversity in flavour combinations that harmonise well with chocolate are the ingenious minds behind The Baking Xperiment. Richly textured and compellingly flavoured, let your taste buds dance around with classic Fudgy Chocolate, Reese’s Peebles, Andes Minty Bitties, French Sea Salt, Cornflake Crunch, Chewy Salted Caramel, Ovaltine Crunch, and Biscoff Spectaculoos.
Alternatively, try the unorthodox Original Durian Brownie garnished with edible gold flakes. Or the Japanese-inspired Kinako Mochi which includes a layer of stretchy glutinous rice cake, sprinkles of toasted soybean flour, and a syringe of black sugar syrup.
Keep in mind that prices begin from RM45 for a box of six pieces, and you can place your orders via WhatsApp.

Brownies Bar, Kuala Lumpur
Is there anything more deliciously sinful than dark chocolate? We don’t think so, as do the folks over at Brownies Bar that initially went by Brownies Bar by The Accidental Bakers.
Competing to offer the most comprehensive list of flavours on our list, get ready to dig into classics like dark chocolate, salted caramel, sea salt with almond, peanut butter, mixed nuts, cookies and cream, matcha, Nutella, walnut, triple chocolate, and red velvet – yes, you read that last one right.
Fair to say, one will most certainly be spoilt for choice, so do go for their mix-and-match set to savour as many as you can. Before we forget, don’t hesitate to go for their 64-piece set if you’re thinking about going big for the next girl’s night in.

Browniboi, Ara Damansara
As the name may indicate, brownies flow through the veins of Browniboi. Those who gravitate towards a more salty-and-sweet flavour profile will rejoice with the brand’s signature dessert: dark chocolate brownies combined with chocolate chips finished off with sprinklings of generous but appropriate amounts of sea salt flakes.
Experimental flavours are also offered on seasonal occasions, as shown with the limited edition white chocolate matcha brownie and ginger cinnamon dark chocolate brownie. Feel free to supplement the chocolatey goodness with their crispy Brownichips, coated with melted chocolate and cinnamon crumbles.

Elevete Patisserie, Petaling Jaya
Although Elevete Patisserie‘s cake bites and ‘Fatcarons’ (jumbo-sized macarons) have become trendy favourites, their brownies have rightfully earned their place in the spotlight.
Chocoholics can go the traditional route with the wickedly indulgent fudgy brownies covered with chocolate glaze and salted caramel drizzle. At the same time, the daring can try the unconventional green tea brownies or the golden butterscotch blondies. Regardless, all can delight in same-day delivery!
For an all-in-one melange of flavours, click on the ‘mix-and-match’ option when purchasing the 8-inch tall tower with 36 bite-sized pieces elevated with toppings such as strawberries, blueberries, homemade salted caramel, couverture chocolate drizzle, and gold leaves.

Heart & Halo Bakery, Petaling Jaya
Already possessing a successful track record in Singapore, founder Arati Ramendu returned to our shores in 2018 to re-kickstart Heart & Halo Bakery with a whole new audience in mind.
Shifting towards an utterly vegan route from its once lacto-vegetarian origins, now no one is left out from indulging in freshly baked goods that include cakes, cupcakes, muffins, and brownies (of course)!
While the other goods experiment with fruity and earthy flavours such as grapefruit and pandan kaya, the brownies go for a straightforwardly sweet approach that plays with different sweet flavours such as peanut butter, Oreo, and Lotus Speculoos.

Bake.Secret, Kuala Lumpur
Proclaiming to offer dangerously addictive dark chocolate brownies to the masses is Bake.Secret. Incorporating 100% butter without a hint of preservatives in sight, dig into four best-selling flavours that come in a box set filled with either eight or 16 square slices: sea salt flakes, Lotus Biscoff (drizzled and crumbled), halved crunchy Oreos, and the good ol’ classic mixed with chocolate chips.
Alternatively, make a splash with the single-flavoured or self-custom flavoured birthday tower for any upcoming celebrations. Do note that purchases should be made two days in advance as they operate on a pre-order basis, so remember to plan ahead to indulge later.
They’re also available in Ipoh, all you need to do is place your orders via WhatsApp.
Bake With Dignity, Kuala Lumpur
If you’re searching for ooey-gooey, fudgy brownies that also support a stellar non-profit, look no further than the ones whipped up by the enthusiastic adults with various learning disabilities (AwLD) at Bake with Dignity. Expect an encyclopaedia-like range of sweet treats that include the classic brownie.
Opt for the original with walnut, peanut butter, or their all-time fan favourite of salted caramel that comes in a trio of sizes – mini, small, and large – to accommodate any occasion (like, say, shameless solo snacking). A minimum order of six under a single flavour is required for mini brownies.

Baked KL, Ampang
Adamant on delivering homemade baked sweet treats that possess a heartwarming rustic charm and are also capable of gratifying the vegan and gluten-free crowd is Baked KL.
Using either cassava or almond flour, enjoy the gluten-free Madagascar Brownies, Brown Cow Brownie (with cream cheese), and Caramella Brownie (with salted caramel) that taste as good as they look.
Available in mini sizes for the vegan option, pick between the rich, moist brownie or cakey, chewy brownie. Either way, smiles are guaranteed with the added bonus of knowing a portion of your purchase will go to an allocated charity organisation of the year.
For some DIY fun, feel free to grab their easy peasy wheat-free chocolate brownie baking mix that only requires oil, water, and vanilla to complete a batch of six!
