Can I make mint brownies in advance?
You can. If you want to make this recipe in steps, go for it. You can always make up the batter ahead of time and then bake them when you’re ready.
I don’t really recommend doing this more than a day in advance since it’s such a simple recipe but if it can save you a little bit of time on the day you want to make them, make them in advance.
How to know when brownies are done
The easiest way to know that the brownies are done cooking is to test them with the toothpick test.
Simply take a clean toothpick, insert it into the center of the brownies, and remove it. If the toothpick comes out clean, your brownies are done. If it comes out with brownie batter on it, they need more time to cook.
I also think that one you can actually start smelling the brownies, it should be an indicator that they’re getting close to being done.
Pair that with the toothpick trick and you’ll have perfectly cooked brownies every time!
Best way to store brownies
If you’re wanting to keep your brownies moist and tasty, the best way to store them is to have them in a sealed container or bag.
The more air that you can keep away from them, the better.
Can You Freeze Mint Brownies?
For sure! We do this all the time in our house. The same rules apply as to store them in a freezer-proof container or bag and make certain that there is no air in it and that it’s sealed well.
My other tip for freezing brownies (or any desserts really) is to freeze them in pairs and in smaller bags and containers.
This way, when you’re craving a brownie, you can just unthaw a couple rather than have to do the whole batch. (it’s good portion control as well!)
Ways to Serve Up Mint Brownies
There are so many ways to enjoy Mint Brownies that anyone can really eat them how they want. Some people like to eat them warm from the oven while others prefer them to cool down before biting.
I’ve even known people to leave them out overnight so that they are a “little stale” as well! To each their own, right?!
When it comes to making the brownies your own, here are some fun toppings that you can add to bring out even more taste and flavor:
