Don’t know much about it? Here, I can give you some. *winks*
Chocolate brownies are flat, baked square desserts. As stated in Wikipedia, they are developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. Brownie is a cross between a cake and a soft cookie and it also comes in a variety of forms. Brownies are fudgy. *heavy breathing again* Sorry, it’s just that… I can imagine its fudginess! Anyway, brownies include nuts, icing, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. Well, whatever you prefer, brownies rock! *winks* Brownies are finger foods. They can be eaten with milk or coffee. “They are sometimes served warm with ice cream (à la mode), topped with whipped cream, or sprinkled with powdered sugar.” They are sometimes served in restaurants. Brownies are said to have been created by a pastry chef as requested by the American socialite, Betha Palmer. Bertha Palmer’s husband owns the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. According to Wikipedia, Bertha asks the pastry chef for a dessert suitable for ladies attending the Chicago World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. She asks for a “confection smaller than a piece of cake, though still retaining cake-like characteristics, easily eaten from boxed lunches.” And that, my friend, is how chocolate brownies is created. *winks*
