Brownies aren’t basic anymore. Few people would turn down the standard chocolate brownie cut into squares, but when your brownie has a twist, it is even harder to resist. Let’s check out a few facts about every chocolate-lover’s dessert and then explore some ideas for upgrading the classic brownie. Put a spin on your favorite chewy, rich brownie and see how much fun this dessert can be.
There is some mystery around the origins of the brownie. There are several legends, but the general consensus is that the brownie was developed in or near Boston. There were many different versions emerging from the East coast in the late 1800s and early 1900s. By 1907, a version called the “Bangor Brownie” was made popular. This one was more rich and fudgy than previous recipes.
Did you know National Brownie Day is December 8? We agree that it deserves a holiday!
What separates a brownie from other desserts?
A brownie is technically described as a bar cookie because it is typically eaten by hand and is more cake-like than cookies.
What about the Blondie?
A blondie is similar to the brownie with a few changes to the ingredient list. Blondies are made with brown sugar, butter and eggs, but no chocolate.
Here are a few of our favorite Rabbit Creek brownie mix flavors:
