Peppermint Brownies Baking Tips:

Don’t over mix the batter. Over mixing adds too much air to the brownies and will give them a cakey texture. That’s fine but today we’re making fudge brownies.

Don’t over bake the brownies. Fudge brownies are slightly under baked. When you remove the brownies from the oven the edges will have begun to pull away from the sides and the center will be gooey.

Cool before cutting. Actually, the best way to get a clean cut is to place the brownies in the freezer for 15 minutes after they cool. However, cooling for 1 hour at room temperature will still do the job.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: Peppermint  Brownies: Can be made one day in advance and kept in the fridge for 7 days.

Fridge: Peppermint Brownies: After you cut brownies, individually wrap with plastic wrap. Then store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the freezer for 5 months. Thaw 24-48 hours before using. 

Reheating: Peppermint  Brownies: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 5-7 minutes.
