One brownie at a time

Darn Brownies was created to give away brownies for free for no good reason. We are roaming from city to city setting up brownie stands and handing out cake. There are no tricks. You can take the brownie and walk away forever, if you would like. Our main goal is just to give away brownies. But if you are willing, we ask that you join our movement and try to come up with something similarly nice you can do for your community. And help us change the world one brownie at a time. 

My experience was excellent. I would return for more free brownies in a heartbeat.

I ate my free brownie and then went ahead and ate the one I took for my husband.
