  • For an extra burst of lemon flavor, you can add a little extra lemon zest to the brownie batter.
  • Make sure the brownies are completely cooled before adding the glaze to prevent it from melting too much.
  • If you prefer a more tart glaze, you can adjust the amount of lemon juice to suit your taste.
