These are the Terminal Tower of brownies: The lower layer is all business, the upper layers are downright lavish and their half-pound heft is enough to put Buckeye Brownies on the map.
Owner Zack Buckeye begins building each brownie in his private commercial kitchen by filling a 9-by-9-inch pan with a brownie or blondie base. Then he layers on an abundance of treats such as whole cookies, candy bars, Pop-Tarts, cookie dough and finishing touches such as sprinkles, cookie pieces, Fruity Pebbles and more.
The result is a massive half-pound brownie best shared between two people or eaten in small doses. Take the Mr. Buckeye ($24-$36) for example: with layers of brownie, Nutter Butters and Reese’s Pieces-studded cookie dough, it’s a formidable treat that hits all the sweet spots you love.
Buckeye even rolls out seasonal flavors, such as a pumpkin pie version in the fall, and each is made more heavenly when you put them in the microwave for a quick 10-second warmup. “They’re unique, they’re different, they’re huge, they’re photogenic,” Buckeye says. “Their taste cannot be found at your local grocery store.” buckeyebrownies.com
