These Christmas brownies are super simple, chewy and fudgy, with a deep chocolate flavor. They’re decorated with royal icing and some silver and gold sprinkles.

Can I freeze my brownies?

Because Christmas time is hectic, I like to bake in advance, freeze and then use when needed, and these brownies can be frozen and still stay fresh!

There are two ways to freeze these: freezing them individually or freezing the whole pan. For any of these two you will need to bake them and let them cool completely.

Freeze the whole Pan

If you would like to freeze the whole pan you will need to bake them over parchment paper to remove them from the pan more easily, then wrap them with plastic wrap very tightly and completely.

To thaw, unwrap them completely, I would suggest cutting them when they’re still cold for cleaner cuts, let them come at room temperature and then decorate with royal icing.

Freeze Individually

To freeze them individually, cut them in squares after letting them cool completely, and place them in an air tight container in a single layer.

Place some parchment paper on top and add your second layer of brownies. Keep adding layers until you run out of brownies. I like to add a layer of plastic wrap between the container and the lid to keep them as fresh as possible.

To thaw just unwrap them and let them come at room temperature, then decorate.
