A chocolate brownie recipe is typically a flat, baked dessert square recipe. The brownie recipe is a cross between a cake and a soft cookie in texture and comes in a variety of forms. Depending on the brownies density, it may be either fudgy or cakey and can include nuts, icing, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. A variation of the brownie recipe made with chocolate bits and brown sugar but without the melted chocolate typically in brownie batter is called a blonde brownie recipe. The history of chocolate goes back a long way to the Mesoamerica in around 1900 BC. At an archeological site on the Gulf Coast of Veracruz, Mexico, a vessel was found at an Olmec that dates to chocolate's preparation by the pre-Olmec people as early as 1750 BC. The chocolate residues and the kind of vessel in which they were found show the initial use of cacao as not just being a beverage recipe, but rather the white pulp found around the cacao beans was likely from the fermentable sugars that were most likely for an alcoholic drink. The Aztecs had gained control of a large part of Mesoamerica by 1500 BC and adopted cacao into their culture. They associated chocolate with the god Quetzalcoatl. In contrast to the Maya, who were known to like their chocolate warm, the Aztecs drank their chocolate cold, seasoning it with a wide variety of additives. The Aztecs were unable to grow the cacao plant themselves, as their where they lived in the Mexican highlands was unsuitable for growing the plant, so chocolate was a luxury that was imported into the empire. The people who lived in the areas that were under the rule of the Aztecs were required to offer the cacao seeds instead of the tax they deemed owed. Cocoa beans were often used as currency.
