Happy National Brownie Day, everyone! On Dec. 8, brownie lovers all over the world celebrate National Brownie Day.
A group of ladies requested a dessert for a fair in the late 1800s. They wanted something similar to a cake but smaller, so they could include in a boxed lunch. A chef from Chicago who worked at the Palmer House Hotel created the first brownie for the ladies, which featured an apricot glaze and walnuts. The Palmer House Hotel still serves the original recipe brownies on their menu. There are a variety of myths about how the first brownie was created. Some popular brownie recipes are chocolate mint brownies, cheesecake brownies, cherry swirl b
rownies and regular brownies. Throughout research the official creator of National Brownie Day was not mentioned.
