Brownies are what happened when chocolate bars and cookies had babies. Um yeah. Okay maybe it’s the fact that it’s nearly lunch time as I type this, and I am hungry, but really, how would you describe them?
The history of the brownie is not as amazing as cheesecake or anything like that. Really it is rather simple. Near the end of the 19th century at the Palmer Hotel, Bertha Palmer asked her chefs to come up with a dessert that “should be smaller than a piece of cake, dainty, and easily eaten, it should fit well in a boxed lunch,”. You see there was a fair being hosted there and the women’s boxed lunches lacked a dessert. The brownie now has many variations and all of them claim to be the best ever. But that is a matter of personal choice. Whether you like them chewy, moist, more cake like, or slightly crunchy, brownie recipes are as wide and varied as fish in the sea.
You read that right folks. The best things ever are now combined to become one great super food made on the grill!
