In fact, you can just chalk this up to another dumb thing I’ve done while prepping. Everything was going fine, until the plastic wrap I put over the brownies melted. Who knew plastic melts!
Why did I do that? Because in the past I’ve noticed that open containers caused condensation on the inside of the Sun Oven glass which decreased temperatures a lot.
So, to combat this I was going to be *smart* and avoid that from the beginning. Needless to say, I was disappointed when I saw what happened. And, as expected, the first thing my wife said to me was “That was stupid. You should have used aluminum foil!”
Yup. Should have used aluminum foil. Should have listened to my wife, even though I didn’t ask her about what I did until AFTER I messed up. Lesson learned. Don’t use plastic wrap in the Sun Oven.
I was going to attempt to salvage some of the brownies but who knows how deeply the plastic wrap may have penetrated the brownies. I didn’t know and my wife strongly encouraged me–ok, she just told me–to dump it… so I did.
And, because my kids were disappointed too, I just made some brownies in the oven. They turned out great.
