FAQ

Question: How long do brownies last?

How to tell if brownies are done?

Stick a toothpick into the center of your brownie. If it comes out clean, your brownies are done. If the toothpick comes out with bits and pieces of batter, bake them a few additional minutes and use a new toothpick to test again. Repeat this process until the toothpick comes out clean.
