Brownie Day 2018 is on Saturday, December 8, 2018: how do you bake brownies for valentines day ?
Saturday, December 8, 2018 is Brownie Day 2018. National Brownie Day - Fun Food Holidays for December @ CDKitchen National Brownie Day
Not too a reason is actually needed, but Brownie Day is a superb opportunity to bake a load of luxurious chocolate brownies. Serve them track of cream, frozen treats, toasted nuts or all of your favourite little luxuries to really make it an ideal moment!
I have a brownie recipe that is so chocolatey and moist. I've made it several times and kept upping the chocolate level (my husband, who is picky about chocolate, wants me to make some this weekend). Also, I use a heart cookie cutter or a pizza cutter (easier cutting). If don't have, can sprinkle little candy hearts with love sayings, or colorful sprinkles in a heart shaped pattern. Another idea is to take and bake two batches in round 8" pans, cut part off of each round and put together to form a heart.
Extra Rich Dark Chocolate Brownies (Adapted from a 1940’s recipe)
Makes 32 bars (2″x1″) Hand mix brownies, makes them tender.
3/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp Canola oil
1 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda)
2 well beaten eggs (or 1/2 cup Egg Beaters)
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Can kick the chocolate level a notch:
Add 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips in the chocolate mixture.
When brownies just come out of the oven, spread mini chocolate chips and spread like frosting…let set to cool the frosting for a 2 or 3 hours. yum….
Preheat oven to 350°.
Line 8” square pan with aluminum foil (easier to lift brownies out of the pan to cool) and grease inside.
Mix together in large bowl: cocoa and oil.
Blend in sugar and eggs.
Sift flour and measure 3/4 cup.
Sift together sifted flour, baking powder and salt.
Hand mix into chocolate mixture. Don’t over mix.
Pour into the 8” greased square pan.
Bake about 8 to 10 minutes. Insert toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean, it’s done.
When cool, cut into bars and remove from pan.
For easier brownie cutting: Use a pizza cutter.
who invented national brownie day?
We found no factual information about the origin of National Brownie Day. But, that's okay. I think I will have a brownie with a glass of milk, and go do some more research on this day........
Most food related holidays are called "National". We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation about this special day.
