TIP OF THE DAY: Take A Brownie Break

December 8th is National Chocolate Brownie Day. If you have the time, bake your own favorite recipe—or try a new one.

We’ll start you out with this Rocky Road Brownie recipe from San Francisco chocolatier Michael Recchiuti.

The brownie, one of America’s favorite baked treats, was born in the U.S.A.—we just aren’t quite sure where, although evidence points to New England in the first few years of the 20th century.

Although cake-like and baked in a cake pan, the brownie is classified as a bar cookie rather than a cake.

There are thousands of recipes, both “cake” types and “fudge” types. Either is perfectly correct—and delicious.

Not every brownie has to be a “moist, fudgy brownie”—although even the people who sell them tend not to know the difference. See our discussion on the different styles of brownies.
