Dello Mano is known for making the best luxury brownies. We’ve spent many years now perfecting our brownie recipe and creating a distinctive chocolate goodness that is uniquely our own.  Our luxury brownies have now been enjoyed by celebrities, dignitaries, world presidents, movie stars, rock stars and thousands of brownie lovers across the world.

You may ask – when all other pastry stores were specialising in cakes and pastries, why did Dello Mano focus on brownies?


 We just love brownies. Simple.

Way back in 2006, Brownies were the forgotten dessert. They were most definitely the under dog. We travelled Australia in search of the best brownie and came away empty handed.  We thought that with our chocolate backgrounds and my Food Science experience we could catapult the humble brownie to new heights.

Now, we recall back then, how people were shocked to think we’d open a brownie business. We were on our own back then and whats more, we insisted on pure quality ingredients including real chocolate that resulted in a small brownie. We had seen the cake type brownie and set out to craft something quite distinct.

We still recall the first Jan Powers Farmers Market we attended at New Farm. Whilst many did not see the brownie light, Natascha Mirosch’s keen journalist eye saw the innovation, producing an article about our Brownie dreams.  Jan Powers was so excited with our innovation and wrote to us personally to ask us to attend the Farmers Market.  We set up our stand with much anticipation buoyed by the support of those two wonderful women who helped get our business off the ground.

About an hour into that first market, a woman approached our stand and chortled (!) “You must be kidding – you can’t make a business out of a brownie”.  Funny how those thoughts never enter your mind as you charge on with your dream. Ours was to pioneer brownies and despite the scepticism and much more of it, we ploughed on anyway.

Here we are, ten years on. Brownies warmed our hearts way back then, so much so, that we pushed on to eventually create a brownie revolution.

Here are just some of the reasons brownies fill our hearts with love:

First, brownies are plain addictive. They’re so delicious. The rich chocolate taste, along with the dense and creamy texture will keep you unwrapping one Dello Mano Classic Luxury Brownie after another. It isn’t too soft and fluffy like a chocolate cake, and it’s never tough and dry. We load our brownies with chocolate and butter and great eggs so they remain deliciously seductive for many months.

They’re versatile.   It doesn’t call for any special occasion to enjoy a brownie (or two). Whether it’s your child’s birthday, a one fine weekend at home, Mother’s Day, Easter or a busy day in the office, you can enjoy this divine treat and call it a happy day.

It is bursting in chocolate flavour. Most people love chocolates. Why wouldn’t they? Chocolate in its own is absolutely delicious. Add in the eggs, butter, some sugar and other wonderful ingredients and you’d have something that is more divine.

 It relives those happy moments. Who hasn’t enjoyed a brownie at a party or memorable occasion or simply a coffee with a friend. Brownies just bring back the happy moments. The good times. The fun, sweet things.

Brownies are heart warming. For us here in Dello Mano, brownies are love. Brownies make our hearts sing! We put our love into each batch of luxury brownies so you’d have something that really warms your heart, not just pleases your palate. All of our brownies and brownie gifts are handmade, so part of our heart goes out to you or your gift recipient with every brownie we create.

Brownies makes us happy. Taking the time to savour a moment with a brownie is happiness. Sweets have a special way of pampering us, improving our mood, and turning a bad day into a beautiful one. It’s a great energiser and a wonderful, divine treat to end a hard day at work. Of course, everything in moderation.

Brownies can make someone else happy. If brownies can make you happy, they can make others happy too. Brownies are perfect chocolate gifts, whether it’s your friend’s birthday, your mum and dad’s anniversary, or your wedding – our luxury brownies are a great gifting option. Brownies are sure to please everyone, young or old – just the way they please you.

Brownies taste divine, and are plain addictive and bursting in chocolate flavour. They’re an enjoyable treat that you can indulge in anytime of the day, something sweet to reward yourself with, a wonderful mood booster, and a great gift to send to a loved one, friend or work associate.
