Tips and Tricks
- The way to get truly fudgy brownies is to just under bake them by a few minutes. When you do the poke test you want there to be a teeny tiny bit of batter still clinging to the toothpick (or whatever you use to test), but the batter should not be wet.
- Use room temperature eggs for the best overall final result.
- Melted butter gives you a chewy fudgy brownies - if you were to make the recipe with room temperature butter, you'll end up with a more cake-like brownie.

Why do the edges of my brownies get hard?
Brownies get hard when they overbake. It's important to take your brownies out of the oven before they're 100% baked because they keep baking as they sit and cool in the pan.
How to store leftover brownies
Store any leftover brownies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to three days. (they wont last that long 🙂 )
Why you shouldn't overmix the batter
Overmixing whips more air into the batter, resulting in a lighter fluffier texture. While this is great for cakes, we want our brownies to be dense and fudgy. Only stir until you can no longer see streaks of dry flour.
