The brownie is a flat, baked square or bar sliced from a type of dense chocolate cake, which is, in texture, like a cross between a cake and a cookie, and is made by the Hogwarts kitchen House-elves . On 31 October, 1991, Draco Malfoy threw a brownie in Hermione Granger's face, making her cry.
Behind the scenes
- In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, the reason Hermione Granger ended up in the girl's lavatory with the troll was because of Draco throwing the brownie at her, instead of being made fun of by Ron Weasley.
- Brownie is also the name of a type of household fairy in English folklore, who may have served as inspiration for House-elves.
