THE TIP

How to Keep Brownies Fresh for Days

Like most other baked goods, brownies are best enjoyed when they’re freshly baked but if you keep them around for a few extra days, they tend to harden pretty quickly. Here are two tips to extend the life of your brownies:

  • For short-term storage, store brownies in an airtight container between layers of wax paper or parchment paper. Before closing it up, place a slice of bread on top. The moisture from the bread will keep the brownies soft for a few extra days. When you notice the bread starting to go stale, just replace it!

  • For long-term storage (a few months), wrap your brownies individually in several layers of plastic wrap then store in a zip top freezer bag. When you want to eat one, unwrap it then microwave in 20 second bursts until it’s defrosted.

The bread trick is a home baker’s secret that sounds crazy…but it actually works and keeps your brownies fresh for an extra day or two. Next time you’re baking a batch of brownies, make an extra pan, store them correctly, and you’ll have fresh tasting brownies whenever you want.
