TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- It's a day to celebrate the ooey, gooey goodness of the brownie!

December 8 is National Brownie Day.

The first brownies turned up way back in the 1800s in Chicago.

A chef at the Palmer house Hotel first created them for a ladies luncheon, because the guests wanted a small cake-like dessert that could be eaten from from a boxed lunch.

The original recipe featured apricot glaze and walnuts, and it's still served on the Palmer House menu.

Now, almost 1.5 billion brownies are eaten every year.

Of course, Kellie and Max had to dig in, and take a look at some of the best brownie recipes out there.

Remember, you can catch Second Cup every weekday at 7 a.m. on
