Shipping brownies

Anyone ever do this? Ship brownies by US mail? I know a safe way to ship cookies is to use a clean Pringles potato chip can, but i haven't come across a ' safe ' way to ship brownies. Any ideas or experience?

Exclamation

I wrap them separately in wax paper, put them in ziplocks and wrap all the ziplocks with bubble wrap.

You can mail them here for me to check out your packaging.

I'd use a heavy plastic box/with lid

Put a layer of brownies and then a piece of wax paper
and then a piece of cardboard and then another layer of brownies.

Then put the whole thing in another box and wrap for
(overnight)
mailing.

Buy a plastic shoebox from your local dollar store. Wrap each brownie in plastic wrap and separate the layers of brownies with cardboard as pdswife instructed. Tape the lid on the box securely.

Put the box of brownies in another box with at least 4 inches of room all around. Fill with packing "peanuts" or popped corn. Send to me. Half Baked just told me she didn't want them.

We had sons in the military overseas that we sent baked goodies to all the time and they always arrived safely. Best of luck.

I sent brownies using the pringle can only cutting them into round brownies that fit in the can. nephew was in a bradley tank all the time not much room for boxes, pringle cans worked great fit into his backpack great. save the scraps and put ontop of vanila ice cream and hot fudge sauce for brownie sundae.

I find that Brownies are VERY sturdy. I cut them and arrange them in a rectangle on an aluminum-foil covered cardboard and then wrapthe whole thing in heavy duty foil. My favorite way to ship them is in one of those US Mail Priority Boxes. I stuff styrofoam peanuts or bubble wrap in the empty parts of the box.

I cannot imagine wrapping each brownie individually. My brownies are only 1 inch square. I like to keep them small, for mini-snacks!

Geez! Wouldn't that make you a little piggie ? I think they should be cut into at least 4-inch squares. That way you could eat 4 and still remain ladylike, yes? It's a chocolate thing!
