Can Christmas Tree Brownies Be Made Ahead of Time?
Yes! If you’d like to prepare these Christmas Tree Brownies ahead of time, you can bake the brownies, cut them into triangles, and then freeze them for up to one month before you plan to use them.
Make sure to wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container. When you’re ready to make them, simply thaw the brownies either at room temp. or in the microwave, then add the decorations.
How Do I Store Christmas Brownies?
To store leftover brownies, cover with foil or plastic wrap and place in an airtight container to keep them from drying out. Stored correctly, these brownies will last for about 2 to 4 days in an airtight container at normal room temperature.
