How to Tell If Brownies Have Gone Bad?

If you’re curious as to whether or not your brownies have gone bad, there are a few distinguishing characteristics that can help you determine this.

First and foremost, look at the texture of your brownies: if the texture has been altered (they become sticky, a white mold begins to form on the top or sides, etc.) even after being stored properly, it’s time to toss them.

Brownies can also develop a sour smell when they’ve gone bad, and/or an unpleasant taste. Any mold that appears should be discarded to prevent contamination of other food products. Brownies that are expired may not necessarily exhibit all of these characteristics, so you should still exercise caution when eating them after their “Best By” date.

Bottom Line

Baked brownies will last on the counter top for 4-7 days, and in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. Brownies that are stored properly, including a sealed container or wrapping, are more likely to maintain their freshness.
