Today's Reason to Celebrate

December 8, 2014 is

National Brownie Day

Today is National Brownie Day! Take some time to relax and enjoy a rich, fudge brownie in honor of the occasion. Many sources say that brownies originated in New England during the early twentieth century, but there are many variations to the tale.

One story says that a Boston chef mistakenly added melted chocolate to a batch of biscuits, thus creating the first brownies. Another version claims that a housewife in Bangor, Maine was making a chocolate cake but forgot to add baking powder. The cake did not rise properly and, instead of throwing it out, she served it in flat pieces.

Pick up your favorite brownie mix or make a batch from scratch to celebrate National Brownie Day!
