Eat Local: Brownies in the North Houston Area

By  | 

Hello Brownies! Hello Woodlands, in conjunction with Nick’s Local Eats, has you covered on where to find some of our favorite northside brownies.

Brownies Nick Rama

The brownie was invented in the United States at the end of the 19th century. Some people like their brownies with a cold glass of milk, others served warm with ice cream (a la mode), topped with whipped cream, or topped with hot  fudge. Brownies are a popular dessert here in Texas, as is the Brownie Sundae at many area restaurants, bakeries and coffeehouses.

A brownie is usually a square or rectangular chocolate baked confection. Brownies have a variety of different textures and may be either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density. They may also include nuts, frosting, cream cheese, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. A variation made with brown sugar and vanilla rather than chocolate in the batter is called a blond brownie or blondie, but for the list below it’s all about chocolaty and fudgy goodness.
