FAQ

How long are leftover brownies good?

You can store them in an air-tight container for 3 to 4 days.

Why did my brownies stick?

If you don’t cover every single part of your pan, the brownies will stick. Don’t be afraid to really coat the pan!

Do brownies need to be refrigerated?

Unless they have something like cream cheese or fruit in them, no. They will last a couple of more days in the refrigerator, but they can also dry out.
