Re-warming brownies?


I'm serving chocolate brownies as a desert at a small dinner party. I will most probably make them the day before but I want to serve them warm at the meal. Perhaps this is a silly question, but do people have a favourite way of warming their brownies without drying them out? I also want to make sure they stay sticky and don't start cooking again too much!

I guess just sticking them in the oven for 10mins or something might work - at a low heat?

Just wondering if there were any tried and tested methods!

I only warm them up in the microwave if I plan on eating them right away otherwise they will get hard. Short of that, I would just keep them in a very low heat oven until ready to serve.

Yes, I agree with Amber...I would "Nuke" them a few seconds! You may want do a test run to see how long you need to bring them up to the temp you want. It will be a matter of seconds..Trust me. Serve them immediately.

I would be fearful that a slow oven would dry them out. Hope this helps.

As uncle Bob mentioned, the slow/low temp oven may dry them out, but if you keep them wrapped in foil and at a 200 degree temp for maybe no longer than 15 minutes, you should be fine.

Either way just lay a wet very well wringed out dish or paper towel over the brownies to keep them from drying out.
