National Blonde Brownie Day is a holiday that celebrates the most popular type of brownie, the blonde brownie. The history behind this day is unknown but it started in the early 2000s by an American baker named Debbi Fields. She wanted to commemorate her signature item and give back to charities for breast cancer research. Today, National Blonde Brownie Day has raised over $6 million for charity!
History Of National Blonde Brownie Day
What’s your favorite chocolatey treat? One story says that it was invented at Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel back in 1893 as a special reward for visitors to the World Columbian Exposition. The chefs who made them were inspired by an early morning coffee break!
The recipe for brownies is an American invention that has been around since the early 20th century. There are many stories about where this tasty treat came from, but one states they first appeared in a Boston Cookbook published by Fannie Farmer and date back as far as 1896!
The brownie, which is believed to have first appeared in the late 19th century but rapidly gained popularity during America’s Victorian era. Unlike most other cake types at this time such as cakes or cookies that were made with flour and butter (or shortening), these decadent treats were primarily baked using sugar – typically an entire pound per batch!
The blondie is the true original cookie bar. A decade or so before, it came into existence as well but not quite like how we think now with brownies being more popular than ever!
In this article, you will learn the differences between regular brownies and blonde brownies. While their ingredients and baking process are mostly similar to each other but there are a few key aspects that make them different from one another: namely color!
A lot of people love dark chocolate with rich flavors especially if it paired up nicely with sweeter options such as peanut butter cups or Nutter Butter cookies; however, some may find it too intense for those who can’t eat much sugar content in foods due to health reasons like an addiction problem at times which could lead into obesity problems over time because our body doesn’t metabolize the sugar in our bodies very well.
Full of rich flavor, these brownies are perfect for any occasion. Mix and match your favorite flavors to create a unique dish that will have everyone demanding seconds!
These delicious treats come in two different varieties: The original blonde variety which can be enjoyed plain or topped with nuts, seeds buttercream frosting; And the dark chocolatey-caramelized version made with premium ingredients like coconut oil and butterscotch chips.

WHY DO WE LOVE NATIONAL BLONDE BROWNIE DAY
1. Rumor has it that blondies pre-date brownies
Brown sugar has been around for a long time. It seems to be the original sweetener!
This is not surprising considering that humans first started cooking with hot stones over 3 million years ago and brown sugars were used as an important curing agent in many ancient Egyptian recipes – including those involving bread like pita bread which was made by stacking thin layers upon each other before baking them at high heats so they would harden into pockets perfect for tearing off bits of tasty sustenance without too much work or messiness involved.”
2. They show you that you don’t need chocolate to have a good time
It’s a sad day when you find out that some people just aren’t into chocolate. They’re allergic to it, or have an intolerance for dairy and soy ingredients which means they can’t enjoy the sweet stuff without getting sick afterward- no thank you very much!
But even worse than being unable to eat your favorite candy bars is finding out what everyone else has been enjoying all this time only reveals itself as hazardous once revealed: oral sex with someone who hates chocoholics…
3. They make the chocolate chips taste better
Chocolate chips are the best. They make brownies sweet and tempting, but it’s hard to ignore when you lose your taste for them in a blondie batter with chocolate mixed into the mix!
