How do I store homemade brownies?

Place cooled brownies in an airtight container. If you’re stacking the brownies, place a sheet of wax paper between each layer so the brownies don’t stick to each other. The brownies will be good in the airtight container for 3-5 days. 

Can I freeze homemade brownies?

Yes! Place the cooled brownies in a freezer safe container, or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
