you're looking for something to do today then suck the color out of
your brownies because it's National Blonde Brownies Day! Take
walk on the wild side and munch of some of these lighter brownies
today. Let's get right into celebrating National Blonde
WHY IS THIS A
Since it's a food holiday, there's no real reason for this
particular day to be chosen but don't you think we discriminate a
little with our brownies? I mean, how often do you eat brownies in
general? Now, how many of those brownies are blonde? Aha, I thought so!
So since blonde brownies, or blondies, don't make it to your
mouth as often as "normal" brownies do they get their own holiday...
and that holiday is today!
This light-colored treat was actually
invented in Upper Sandusky, Ohio and there's a reason why they are so
light. What's that reason? Well, normally you add cocoa to brownies to
give them their dark brown color and familiar taste, but there is no
cocoa in blonde brownies. But they do contain a good amount of
alternate sweetness instead; brown sugar! So these brownies should
still satisfy your sweet tooth. These brownies also contain
baking powder, butter, flour, eggs, vanilla and whatever else you'd
like to add. You see, most people like to add white chocolate or
chocolate chips to their blonde brownies as well as things like nuts,
toffee and coconut. You can get really creative with your blondies ;).
The rest of the baking process is identical to regular brownies and
they're sure to make you go, "MMM!".
So how can you celebrate today? Well, you can easily head to
the store and see if they don't have a blondie mix waiting for you. It
makes things a lot easier when you only have to add in a couple
ingredients, mix, spread, bake and then eat! Plus, I'm sure it's a lot
cheaper this way too. Or you could find a recipe online and
the store to get a bunch of different ingredients. But don't be afraid
to sway away from using the exact ingredients when it comes to things
like chocolate chips and nuts. You can swap those things out for things
your taste buds will truly enjoy.
You don't have to use
chocolate chips (there are many other types of chips available) and
there are a variety of different nuts and candies you could put inside
your brownies as a little hidden treasure. Want to do
fun today? If you're going to a party or some kind of event, tell the
people that you'll bring brownies. The bake your blonde brownies, bring
them to the party and enjoy the look on their face when they see what
you brought. Heck, call them albino brownies if you want! And I'm sure
once they taste them their weird look will melt away as they realize
how good they are. You may have just changed their brownie world
forever. I hope you have a blonde-tastic day!
