Pro Tips

  • Don’t add excess coating to the brownies. You want enough to cover it but not enough that it’s dripping off.
  • Line the pan in parchment paper. This will make lifting the brownies out of the pan to cut much easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store the brownies?

Storage is best at room temperature on the counter. Make sure to use an airtight container and they will keep up to 1 week.  You do not have to put them in the refrigerator.

Can you freeze these?

I suggest freezing plain undecorated brownies. It is not recommended to freeze the brownies decorated because condensation will form as they thaw. This will make the sprinkles bleed.

How do you get clean cut brownies?

Make sure the brownie are completely cool before using the cookie cutters. Also, you may need to occasionally wipe the cookie cutters off if any brownie residue sticks. This will help each brownie to be clean cut.
