I love a Corner!

If you love a corner brownie, these delicious brownies will hit the spot. Just a little firmer and chewier at the edges, soft and perfectly moist in the middle. I’ve never baked with one of those “all corner” brownie pans, but I have a feeling this recipe would be amazing!

How to Store Nutella Brownies

Store leftover brownies in an airtight container on the counter for up to five days. 

To freeze, I recommend wrapping them individually in plastic wrap. Then place in a freezer-safe container or in individual freezer-safe baggies

To defrost frozen brownies, let them set at room temperature, uncovered, so they don’t absorb too much of the moisture.
