How to Store Brownies:

If you go on a brownie making kick, like I may or may not have… (ahem…), then you are going to need to store your brownies.

Once you have cut your brownies into squares and allowed them to cool completely, you can store them for up to about three days in an airtight container.

Can I freeze homemade brownies?

You may also be wondering if you can throw the brownies into the freezer to eat at a later date.  You can freeze cooked brownies! They do best if you wrap the full, uncut slab, in a double layer of plastic wrap and then in a double layer of aluminum foil.  Make sure to date and label the brownies.

I suggest that you don’t try freezing a cheesecake layer as they ten to sweat in the defrosting process.

How do I defrost frozen brownies?

To thaw the brownies, unwrap them from the foil and plastic wrap. Then, let them stand at room temperature for 3-4 hours before cutting into squares or bars.

A large serrated knife, such as a bread knife, is useful for cutting brownies as you can use a sawing motion to break through the top crust then press down to cut through the softer brownie underneath.

Wipe the knife between each cut to get clean edges to the slices.  A thin wire or fishing line also works very well for uniform squares or bars of brownie.
