National Brownies At Brunch Month

August is National Brownies at Brunch Month, and we think it’s probably just a month created to give people a reason to eat more chocolate for breakfast. No matter, it’s still a month that we’re planning to observe. After all, what goes better with scrambled eggs, French toast, bacon, and mimosas than brownies?

Okay, we know that does sound kind of disgusting, so maybe people should just drink a glass of milk with their brunch brownie. Regardless of how a person celebrates this month, it’s important for them to start with high-quality brownies.

The History of National Brownies at Brunch Month

We find that this is a very odd month. Brownies aren’t exactly something that you would expect at brunch. Most people serve popular breakfast or lunch items during their brunches — they don’t usually feature desserts. That means that people have eggs, bacon, sausages, bread, sandwiches, breakfast burritos, and maybe some alcohol.

Never have we heard about brownies, chocolate, or other dessert items featured at a brunch. And since we’re unsure of who invented this month, we can’t ask them why they created it. This month will continue to be a mystery to everyone who observes it, we guess.
