Tips
  • How long do brownies last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions — keep freshly baked brownies in a dry area.
  • To maximize the shelf life of brownies, place in a covered airtight container or cover with foil or plastic wrap to prevent drying out.
  • Properly stored, freshly baked brownies will last for about 3 to 4 days at normal room temperature.
  • *Refrigerate immediately any brownies that contain frosting or filling made with dairy products or eggs, such as buttercream, whipped cream or custard frostings or fillings; they will last for about 3 to 4 days in the fridge.
  • Can you freeze brownies? Yes, to freeze: wrap brownies tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • How long do brownies last in the freezer? Properly stored, they will maintain best quality for about 4 to 6 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — brownies that have been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How to tell if brownies are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the brownies: discard any that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the brownies.
