Brownies are actually cookies; did I just blow your mind! Well it’s true, brownies are a type of sheet cookie. Legend has it, chocolate brownies started in a Chicago hotel. More specifically, the Palmer Hotel. And who can you thank for that? Bertha Palmer herself.
Palmer desired a dessert for the women who were attending the 1893 World Fair in Chicago. She wanted it to be a cake and cookie mashup the likes of which Chi-town and the world had never seen. Crowned with walnuts and apricot glaze, these desserts of distinction eventually blew up in the 20th century.
From the world fair to the star of every bake sale you have probably ever been to, chocolate brownies have had an interesting history. And it’s still being written. The original recipe of butter, sugar eggs and chocolate will always be classic and a favorite, but the recipe has certainly evolved. In our Interactive Tasty recipe above, you can help create the latest take on this classic dessert.
