NATIONAL BLONDE BROWNIE DAY

National Blonde Brownie Day on January 22nd recognizes a treat often referred to as blondies. 

Blonde brownies are similar to the traditional brownies known almost everyone.  In place of cocoa, brown sugar is used, giving it a sweet-tooth-satisfying molasses flavor!

Most people like to add white chocolate or chocolate chips to their blonde brownies or other things like nuts, toffee or butterscotch. Blonde brownies are usually prepared unfrosted as the brown sugar flavor tends to be sweet enough.  These blondies are sometimes served in sundaes, often topped with caramel sauce.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalBlondeBrownieDay

While enjoying a blonde brownie would count toward celebrating the day, that may be much too simple. Blonde brownies also make a delicious addition to a layered trifle dessert. Add a scoop of ice cream to a freshly baked blonde brownie and top with your favorite syrup. If you prefer the lighter side, serve a blonde brownie with a serving of fresh fruit. Pineapple, cherries or apricots seem appropriate.  

Serve your blondies with tea, coffee or hot cocoa. And of course, you can’t enjoy them alone. You must extend an invitation to a friend or two. They’ll happily help you finish off a few blondies while catching up on the new year. You can make them for church, school or work occasions, too.
