How Long will Brownies Last when Stored?

  • Brownies covered and stored and room temperature should last 3-4 days. If stored in the refrigerator they should last about one week

What are some ingredients I can add to store bought brownie mix batter to make them better?

  • nuts
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • chunks of chocolate
  • vanilla extract
  • use milk in place of water
  • espresso powder

Tips for making Ornament Brownies…

  • place foil in a 9×13 pan with it overhanging on the edges to lift brownies out with
  • be sure to grease the foil or use non-stick foil
  • a three inch circle cookie cutter will make about 6 brownies – use a smaller cookie cutter to get more brownies
  • buy icing in tubes to make decorating easy
  • you can find green frosting at Christmastime in the baking aisle to use on your brownies
  • if the cookie cutter will not go through a thick crust, use kitchen shears to finish cutting brownies out

  • Round cookie cutters – I used a 3 inch. wide cutter and it made 6 brownies


  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2 large *eggs
  • 3 tbsp. water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 6 mini candy canes

Decorating suggestions:

  • 1 16 oz. Frosting assorted colors like white and green
  • 1 2 oz. decorating Icing in tubes red is a good choice
  • 1 cup M&Ms
  • ½ cup Sprinkles


  • Mix the brownie mix in a large bowl with oil and eggs mentioned on the back of the box
  • Placed non stick foil or heavy duty foil in a 9×13 pan so that it overhangs for lifting later
  • *using spray oil is a good idea over the foil
  • Pour brownie mix into the pan
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until brownies are cooked through
  • Cool completely (you can place pan in freezer for 30 minutes or let cool at room temperature for 1 hour)
  • Lift foil and brownies out of pan
  • Use cookie cutter to make circles
  • *If necessary, use kitchen shears to help cut the circles out after using cookie cutter to make shapes
  • Set scraps aside for snacking
  • Push candy canes into the center of each circle edge
  • Decorate with frosting, icing, candy and sprinkles


Storing – store covered at room temperature for 3 days or covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week
*if you place it in the refrigerator – candy may take on condensation and become discolored
*To get more brownies from this recipe, use a smaller cookie cutter. I used a 3-inch wide circle and got 6 brownies
