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.
