How To Reheat & Store
Best Way To Store Mardi Gras Brownie Dip
First, you can store your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip in a Dip bowl. This is a great option for parties where you're planning on serving a lot of dips.
The dip will keep its flavor and texture longer if stored in a bowl rather than directly in the refrigerator or freezer.
You can also use this option if you have smaller portions of the dip so they don't get too warm. Second, you can also store it in plastic storage bags.
Plastic storage bags are great for storing dips that aren't very sticky, like this one!
They'll keep your dip fresh and ready to serve—and they won't take up much room in your pantry or freezer.
Lastly, in soy wax paper. If you want to make sure that your dip stays fresh for long periods of time, try using soy wax paper instead of plastic wrap or tin foil—it won't get soggy like other types of wrapping paper do, and it will also stay fresh longer than regular wax paper would do because it's so thick!
How Long Will Best Way To Store Mardi Gras Brownie Dip Last In the Fridge?
Mardi Gras Brownie Dip will last up to two weeks in the fridge.
The dip can be kept at room temperature for about three days before it begins to spoil if you plan on storing your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip for longer than two weeks.
To store your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip in the refrigerator, simply place it in a shallow container and cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
You can also use an airtight container if you prefer.
You can also put this dip into an airtight plastic bag and seal it tightly before placing it back into your fridge or freezer.
Storing Your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip in the Refrigerator and Freezer
If you're planning to store your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip for more than a couple of days, it's best to freeze it because the ingredients lose their flavor over time.
When you're ready to use it again, simply thaw and heat in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warm.
If you want to keep your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip in the refrigerator for a few days, place the container in a shallow dish and cover it with plastic wrap.
The airtight seal will help keep out humidity and moisture that might cause mold or mildew growth.
We recommend storing your Mardi Gras Brownie Dip in the refrigerator between 40°F (4°C) and 70°F (21°C), but if you live in a very warm climate, either above or below these temperatures, then feel free to store it at whatever temperature is most comfortable for you!
Can I Freeze Brownie Dip?
Yes, you can freeze brownie dip! Brownie dip is a delicious and decadent treat that tastes even better when cold.
We recommend storing your brownie dip in the freezer so that it stays fresh and chilled until you're ready to eat it.
However, if you want to save some time, we also recommend putting brownie dip into an ice cube tray instead of a plastic bag.
This way, all the brownie dip will be contained within individual cubes when it's time to devour!
How To Reheat Brownie Dip
To reheat brownie dip later, pop it into the microwave for about 20 seconds or until it's heated, and serve with slices of fruit or a scoop of ice cream.
For extra-thick brownie dips, you can add an extra minute of cooking time after removing from the heat. Just be careful not to overheat them!
You can also reheat your brownie dip in the oven if you'd like to save time. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
Place a small amount of cream cheese in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted on medium-low heat (about 3 minutes).
Add 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk and stir until smooth. Place in a 9×9-inch (22×22 cm) pan and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
Then, bake for 10 minutes or until puffed up and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving with a spoonful of warm fudge sauce, as desired.
Mardi Gras Brownie Dip FAQs
Is there anything I should know before I make it?
Yes. First, use the best mix of brownie and cream cheese you can find.
Next, because this recipe is made in a hand blender, you will want to make sure that your machine is clean and all parts are free of debris before you begin cooking.
Then, you won't be able to use the same bowl for dipping that you used for the brownie mix because it will become too soft during the combining process.
If you have a small bowl on hand, it may be a good idea to use that instead of your mixing bowl when making this recipe.
More importantly, you may want to double or triple this recipe if you plan on serving at a large party or catering event, as it will make quite a bit of dip!
Can I make these ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this ahead of time. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, but it is best if you let it sit at room temperature for an hour before serving.
