The Palmer House Hilton Brownie

Palmer House®, A Hilton Hotel offers a variety of dining experiences to satisfy every palate. The original purveyor of the brownie, the history of the hotel's cuisine dates back to 1893, when a small-portioned dessert reminiscent of a cake was asked to be created by the pastry chef. To this day, the hotel still crafts their brownies according to this original recipe. Guests can enjoy this tasty treat amid their meal at one of the hotel's many dining outlets.
