It’s National Brownie Day and there’s an interesting debate going on about what kind is the best. Honestly, a brownie’s always been just a brownie to me, but it’s evidently quite different to some folks and they’re very passionate about it. Most of us are familiar with the “Big 3” common varieties:
The chewy, chocolate dessert that usually comes from a mix. Sometimes with nuts, sometimes without, but always good.
The marbling certainly looks spectacular, but I’m not sure it’s worth the extra step.
Lighter in color and some would argue also lighter in flavor.
I’ve eaten—and enjoyed—all of those, but I had no idea the world of brownies was so much larger and more exotic! Ever heard of “Deep Cherry Chipotle” brownies or “Tahini and Halvah Floss” brownies? I definitely hadn’t prior to today. Those two, along with a dozen more obscure concoctions, are featured on Hello Giggles. While not all of them sound appetizing to me, I am impressed with the creativity.
As for my personal favorite? Drenched in caramel! OMG, this would seriously be heaven on a plate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream added.
Feel free to chime in with your thoughts. What’s your favorite brownie?
