We swear, we are not baking this up!
Are you in love with brownies as much as we are? If you like this dessert then you should know that National Brownie Day is celebrated on December 8th each year. This is the day when we celebrate this chocolate treat without any limitations. You can eat one, two, or more, and you can indulge in this bakery heaven every time when you celebrate this great day.
Let’s see what makes the brownie day so special and how to prepare some great brownie recipes with a little bit of imagination and goodwill.
The story about the first brownie that was made in America goes back to the late 1800s when the ladies who were at lunch asked the chef to make some dessert that could be taken as a takeaway. The chef made brownies with apricot glaze and delicious walnuts. The same dessert is served at Palmer House Hotel in Chicago today where the history of the brownies began.
The original brownie recipe was made with walnuts and apricot glaze, and this recipe is equally interesting as many other recipes of this delicious treat. People today make many different versions but the original brownie recipe has its own special flavor and it is different from other types of brownies.
If you want to make brownies, it is best to go with recipes that are simple and easy to make. Of course, you can play with unique brownie flavors that add a special taste to the chocolate brownie.
There are many variations of brownies, and you can find some of them below:
Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies – This is a brownie that has a base topped with a thick layer of cheesecake and some raspberries inside the cake. This makes a perfect combination of chocolate and fruits.
Nutter Butter Truffle Brownies – This version is a combination of classic brownie mix and yummy cream cheese that is combined with butter nutter cookies. On the top, you can taste chocolate mixed with peanut butter. This is a mix made in heaven.
Zucchini Butterfinger Brownies – If you want to make a healthier version of this treat, you can go with the zucchini as a base and butterfinger candy bars on top. This is a healthier option and less nutritious variant than a standard brownie.
You cannot go wrong with all of the mentioned unique brownie flavors. If you prepare them for your friends and family members, everybody will be able to get a piece of the unique brownie variation.
If you want to surprise the other person, it is best to give them the brownie bouquet. In this bouquet, you can put many different brownies and variations of chocolate sweets. You can even make personalized brownies that will convey a certain message. You can write in a message that you greet the person and that bouquet is made specifically for them.
Everyone will like to get this kind of brownie bouquet and you will be thrilled to give someone such a valuable gift. Make sure that everything is packed in a special brownie gift box that will serve as a box for all of the treats. A good package and a personal message will make miracles for the person you want to surprise.
During the national brownie celebration, it is good to taste some really good brownies. No matter if you prepare them at home or you buy them in a shop or bakery, National Brownie Day is a day for some indulgence. Get your favorite brownies and celebrate this day without the limits.
