December 8th National Brownie Day

If you ever want to get the whole family in the same room at the same time, bake some brownies, they’ll soon be in the kitchen with you, unless of course you are baking hem elsewhere (Which might be a little odd). Hardly anyone can ignore the scent of a brownie. There is something about them that just call out to you, drawing you in closer and closer.

Generally thought of as a cold weather treat, a brownie is great anytime of the year. Of course, there is something about that warm chocolate all melted and gooey, surrounded by a cake like substance that nobody knows what it is, or cares.

Add a little ice cream and the day becomes even better. There is something about the blend of warm chocolate brownie and cold vanilla ice cream. You can have it with, or without, nuts. Walnuts, pecans, cashews, any type of nut you choose. You can even share it with someone who is nuts!

And if you really want to please Santa leave him a brownie instead of those old, stale cookies! Santa might stay a little longer and leave better presents! Add a dollop of whipped cream and even better! (What is a dollop exactly?)

You can even go wild if you want to. Add a candy cane all melted inside the brownie or M&M’s or a little brandy (For adults only) The point is, live it up a little! It’s your brownie so you can do what you want with it.

How to celebrate – Make some brownies today. Try some new additive to your brownie. Don’t forget the Alice B. Toklas brownies!
