How Long Are Brownies Good For?

Different storage methods bring different results. So let’s see how long can brownies stay good using different storage techniques:

How to Store Brownie At Room Temperature?

Freshly baked brownies can easily stay good and fresh for 4-5 days at room temperature, with proper care. To save the brownies from drying out, cover them with foil or plastic wrap- it is even better to keep the brownies in a ziplock bag or an airtight jar or container.

Covering up the brownies won’t increase its timespan, but it will surely retain the quality of the brownies.

Note: If your brownies have the filling or topping over them, don't keep them at room temperature for more than a day! And immediately try to store them in the refrigerator 

How to Store Brownies in the Fridge?

The good news for brownie lovers is that your brownies can stay good for a couple of weeks in the fridge if stored properly. If your brownies have topping or have any filling in them, it is advised to keep them in the refrigerator immediately; as they won’t stay good if you leave them at room temperature for a longer time.

Cover the brownies with cling film before keeping them in the refrigerator. This keeps the brownies from drying out.

When you want to consume them, do not forget to keep them at room temperature for a few minutes; so that they can get back into their fudgy and chewy texture again!

How to Store Brownies in the Freezer?

If you are traveling somewhere and want to store the brownies for a few months, then freezing them is the best option! To freeze brownies, you need to keep them in an airtight container or cover them with plastic wrap.

Remember to defrost brownies as you take them out from the freezer. Let them settle down at room temperature, before microwaving them. Heating the brownies in the microwave is an excellent option to make them a bit fudgy and chewy again!

Although these methods are handy and reliable but eating the brownies fresh and straight out of the oven gives a heavenly joy; without a doubt!

How To Tell If Brownies Have Gone Bad?

After a long period, the brownie will eventually go bad, no matter wherever you keep them. To know if the brownie has gone bad- check the texture; if the texture and appearance change that means it is time to throw away the brownies.

Another way is to notice is the smell! If the smells are strong and funky, then it means that they went bad and should be thrown into the trash right away!
