SAVE SOME FOR LATER

In a sealable container, your brownies will stay good at room temperature up to about 3 days. They can get super stale if you leave them out without covering them, so make sure that you keep them in something that is airtight and sealable.     

COST FACTOR

$: You may already have a lot of the ingredients hanging round if you cook, and even if you don’t, you can buy the dry ingredients in bulk to stretch your money. This recipe does take more than a couple ingredients to make, but trust us, it is totally worth it.  

MICROWAVE TABLE

  • 1,000 watts or higher: Higher wattage, lower cook time. Our microwave is about 1,250 watts, but if you have one with about 1,000 watts you will want to cook your brownies for about 1:12 minutes.
  • 700 watts: Microwaves under about 900 don’t heat things evenly or consistently, so don’t go anywhere while you’re cooking. Bake your brownie for about 1:45 minutes.
