3 Chocolaty Recipes For National Brownie Day

3 Chocolaty Recipes For National Brownie Day

National Brownie Day is a day to indulge in one of America’s favorite baked goods. This classic bake sale item is a cross between a cookie and a cake and with so many kinds of brownies (blonde, chocolate, fudge, maple, or layered), it can be hard to figure out which ones you want to eat. It’s a good thing we have some delicious recipes for you in this article. But first…A brief history of the brownie.

A History, In Brief

Brownies were the brainchild of some brilliant chef in the late 1800s. What made this man create such an infamous baked good? Well, he was requested to make a dessert for ladies, who wanted a small cake-like dessert that could be eaten as part of a boxed lunch, attending a fair in Chicago. The chef, who worked at the Palmer House Hotel, created the brownie with an apricot glaze and walnuts. The Palmer House Hotel serves that same recipe to this day.
