Yesterday's blog sure stirred things up, didn't it? I loved it! And it was so nice to find out I'm not the only crayon in the pack pissed at the way things are being handled.
But to cool our melting colors, I thought I'd share something today a little more comforting. And what's more comforting than yummy brownies?
Yet, what on earth is a Blonde Brownie? Does it have hair? Is it thought to be less intelligent that a brunette one? Wait...if it has to do with chocolate, why do I care? LOL
According to my Hungry Girl Daily Email, January 22nd is National Blonde Brownie Day. It isn't a "real" national holiday, just one of those crazy odd holidays that seem to pepper our calendars.
But I'm cool with that. Why not celebrate a day where you can munch on yummy brownies and not feel guilty. After all, it's a national holiday. Doesn't that mean it's your patriotic duty to bake and eat as many as you can????
Well...that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
According to my extensive research there are several ways to make a blonde brownie. The most popular way is to switch out dark brown sugar with light brown sugar. Easy peasy. Another way I found was to use a cream cheese icing to add the blondeness to your recipe. But as most everyone knows, brownies are chock full of calories, fat and sugars, so they may be delicious, but not the healthiest dessert on the planet.
The good news is, Hungry Girl has several recipes for brownies that aren't so calorie ridden. My favorite choice is this one. Swirls Gone Wild Cheesecake Brownies Delicious, low cal and if you like cheesecake brownies, this one is to die for.

Do you have a brownie recipe, blonde or brunette that you'd like to share? Low cal or high, I collect them all. Please pop them into the comments and give us all a chance to drool in anticipation!!!
