It’s Brownie Day! Let’s Celebrate With Delicious Brownies Recipe!

Did you know that in America, they celebrate what is known as National Brownie Day every December 8th? It is said that National Brownie Day started back in the 1800s when the people working at the Palmer House Hotel Chicago made their first brownie recipe. That recipe then changed the entire baking industry.

In order to celebrate the National Brownie Day, you could simply stuff yourself with various brownies. While that seems like a good idea, why not bring it up a notch? Rather than just eating them, how about this time we try to create various kinds of brownies together?

This time, we will provide you with some brownie recipes that we think might fit the occasion, especially with Christmas coming up fast.

1. Blackberry Cheesecake Brownies

If you consider traditional brownies are boring, why not top it off with cheesecake and create a cheesecake brownies? And if that is still not enough, give a splash of fresh blackberry jam on top of the heavenly combinations! The color combination of white cheese and red blackberry jam are also fitting the theme of Christmas!

The total time it will take to make this beautiful cheesecake (according to the recipe) is 1 hour and 15 minutes. With only 10 minutes of preparation, we say that it is worth the time to wait that long!

It could give you the salty taste you craved for, but without turning the entire cake salty. Who would want to eat a totally salty brownies anyway?

Do not forget that you need to create a caramel sauce to make this brownie totally delicious! It is not hard, but it might take a few minutes to let the caramel fully ready, and another 20 minutes to make the caramel sauce stick to the brownies. Only then, you can sprinkle this delicious dessert with salt of your choice!

4. Mint Brownies with Chocolate Ganache

This time, we will give you a brownie recipe that could combine the sweetness of chocolate, and the bitterness of espresso. And double that dose, in case you are in need for some kickers or all-nighters.

You could also add the dose of espresso just in case you would need more caffeine to keep you awake.

5 Thanksgiving Recipe to Make with Your Kids!

In the United States, Thanksgiving started out as a ceremony to be thankful for a bountiful harvest. However, as time goes on, the national holiday now becomes the perfect moment for families to gather and enjoy various Thanksgiving recipes they could cook before the holiday.

While Indonesia has no history of celebrating Thanksgiving, it would be great to dedicate one special day where the family gathers and eat together. That’s why, today we will present to you 5 Thanksgiving recipes you can make together with your kids!

1. Vegetable Tian

For our first Thanksgiving recipe, we will create a Vegetable Tian.

Tian is the name of a dish prepared in “tian”, an earthenware vessel from French that can be used to cook and serve food. Usually, this dish is made using vegetables alone, but sometimes you can also add lamb, fish, or egg to it. 

For this Tian recipe, you can make it together with your kids because you will not use a stove or any kind of open fire. However, make sure you keep the knife away from your kids after you slice the vegetables.

You can find the recipe here.

2. Dark Chocolate Clusters

Who doesn’t like snack? Especially when it’s made out of chocolate!

With the simple ingredients of walnut, pecan, and almonds, you can create an amazing snack that the whole family can enjoy while having a conversation or watching Thanksgiving movies together.

Since there is no fire or sharp kitchen objects used to make this snack, you can work together with your kids or even competing with them to see who can create the most cluster of chocolates in a certain amount of time!

You can see how to make this delicious looking chocolate here.

3. Mashed Potato Casserole

Do you want a reason to let your kids play with food? Then, you can rest assured because with the next Thanksgiving recipe, you can let them mash the potatoes while you prepare the other ingredients to finish the dish.

After your kids help out with the mashing, you can let them see how you put the other ingredients you have prepared on top of the mashed potatoes and then when you put the dish inside the oven. Once the oven rings, you can reward their hard work with a delicious mashed potato dish!

You can find the recipe for this mashed potato here.

4. Fresh Pot Apple Cider

Thanksgiving is celebrated in November, which is usually the rainy season here in Indonesia. To combat the cold, make sure you prepare a warm drink for your partner and kids, and maybe even let your kids help out in the kitchen as you prepare the drink.

Since we are going to use a knife and a slow pressure cooker for this recipe, it might be wise to let your kids help out only when you don’t use a knife or the stove, such as letting them choose what kind of fruit they would want, and letting them put the fruit inside the cooker.

Once they finished, they could sit quietly and wait for their hard work to bring fruit. Or in this case, cider!

If you’re interested in making this warm drink, you can see the recipe here.

5. Fruit Cheesecake Dip

Eating a cheesecake is nice and fulfilling. However, making it is another story altogether. You would need to do a lot of things other than baking it. But what if you could make something with the flavor of a cheesecake, but without all the hard work?

Not only that, since we are not going to use any sharp object or fire, you can have an extra helping hand from your kids!

You can dip biscuits, wafers, or crackers into this dish with the whole family while having a warm and nice cup of tea in the evening.

If you want to create a cheesecake but don’t want the hassle of actually creating one, you can see the recipe for this dish here.
