I actually cooked that one a little too long in the oven… Five minutes less would have made this a little more goey and yummy.

Wait to cool and cut into portions. Put some in plastic bags to freeze.

Store the remaining portions in an air-tight container. You may want to re-use the baking paper to make it easier when lifting them out of the container.

I use a 10in x 15in baking tray as I like my brownies thinner rather than thicker.

These brownies can be eaten straight out of the freezer for a crispier consistency although they defrost very quickly.
