Create a fudgy wonderland this National Brownie Day!
National Brownie Day is a special celebration, but what does it really mean? Fudgy and chocolatey brownies are rich and decadent to eat and share! with friends. Let’s deep dive a little into the history of National Brownie Day, how to celebrate it with your family and friends, as well as tips on how to make amazing brownies at home.
National brownie day is celebrated on the 8th of December every year. Brownies as we know them were first created in Chicago, Illinois. Chocolate seemed expensive and hard to come by, so these chocolate brownies were considered a luxury item. A chef developed the original recipe for chocolate brownies at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, IL. Over time they have become more affordable and accessible to everyone!
Here are some fun ways to celebrate National Brownie Day:
Another exciting way to gift your brownies while engaging in the national brownie celebration is by making the brownie bouquet, and how do you do this?
The brownie bouquet is an original classic flower arrangement where brownies replace flowers. It’s a great way to celebrate national brownie day, and it also makes for an amazing gift for anyone who loves both flowers and brownies! First, prepare your brownies, then place them in individual small vases, or you can use muffin tins instead, fill each tin with about one cup of water so that they hold their shape while baking. Place them into the oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit like you would normally make brownies but leave out any mint extract or other flavors as these won’t work well since they’ll be baked inside the pans; bake until firm around 30 minutes depending upon how large your tins are.
Once they’ve cooled, you can then start assembling your brownie bouquet. To attach the brownies in any way you like, use a hot glue gun; we recommend using a variety of sizes and shapes for a pretty extra look. You can also add some frosting or chocolate sauce between the brownies for added flavor and visual appeal. Now it’s ready to be enjoyed or gifted!
