Celebrate National Chocolate Brownie Day

Did you know that tomorrow is National Chocolate Brownie Day?  Yes, it must be true because it says so right here.  It seems that just about every day of the the year it is national this or that day.  There's always a food to celebrate! 

You won't get any quibbling from me about National Brownie Day.  Brownies are one of my favorite desserts.  They are easy to make and quickly satisfy that craving we all get every once in a while for fudgy, chocolate deliciousness.  So, in honor of National Chocolate Brownie Day tomorrow, let's make some brownies today. 

The Intense Chocolate Brownie
For a lovely, chocolaty, dense brownie that will make you want more try the Intense Chocolate Brownie. 

It is a recipe from Joanne Chang of the Flour Bakery + Cafe in Boston, Massachusetts that includes unsweetened chocolate and bittersweet chocolate among its ingredients.

 A Shiny, Crunchy Crust
If you prefer some chocolate chunks in your brownie you'll enjoy the Best Fudge Brownie Ever, a recipe from the bakers at King Arthur Flour. 

The chocolate flavor in this brownie comes from cocoa and chocolate chips.  This brownie bakes up with a crisp, shiny crust that is sure to delight.

The Baked Brownie
Finally, the famous Baked brownie, from Brooklyn's Red Hook Bakery, adds a touch of coffee flavor along with cocoa and dark chocolate.  This recipe also produces a shiny crunchy crust and a dense, moist crumb.

Make any one of these brownies, or all of them.  You won't be disappointed.  Gild the lily by adding a layer of chocolate butter cream frosting.  Yum!



  1. Yum... I'll have to remember that for tomorrow!

  2. These look delicious. Do you have to refrigerate them if you have leftovers (only 2 of us) and can they be shipped in vacuumed bags to ship to Alaska for family.

    1. Brownies freeze really well, so whenever I have leftovers I wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze them individually. That works great. I've never shipped to Alaska, but I'm sure they would arrive in great shape if you ship them with the same care used for other baked goods you might ship.
