Milk Chocolate Brownies

1 Review

We are always looking for good brownie recipes. So far our  favorite is Ina’s Outrageous Brownies, but these Milk Chocolate Brownies were perfect for a faster, but still delicious version. They were moist, chewy, chocolatey and had that flaky crust that I happen to love. They may not look awesome, but they sure taste it! If you need a quick and easy recipe for brownies I would definitely try this one!

How Do You Know If Brownies Are Done?

When the brownies start to pull away from the edge of the pan, they are done.

You can test for doneness by inserting a toothpick near the center of the pan.

If the toothpick comes out clean, your brownies will be cake-like.

For fudgy brownies, remove from oven when the toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.

How Long Will Brownies Keep?

Cut brownies, wrapped well in plastic wrap will keep for 2 days at room temperature.

A pan of uncut brownies, wrapped well will keep for up to 4 days at room temperature.

Can Brownies Be Frozen?

Brownies can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Wrap in plastic wrap and foil or place in heavy duty freezer bag before freezing.
