And immediately press on top of the brownies.

Oh! Btw, I hardly ever, ever line my baking dishes with foil (I’m normally way to lazy to be bothered..), but you’ll probably want to for these. It’s really the only way to get them out so you can cut into these babies! :)

I’m still wringing my hands with worry over that one. Snort.
