Can I eat two month old "special" brownies that haven't been refrigerated/frozen?

About two months ago I made a batch of brownies with a certain special ingredient. (I don't know if that makes a difference, but I include it just in case.) I used a store-bought mix that required water, butter, and eggs. The brownies turned out wonderfully fudgy and delicious (protip: saute your herb in oil for half an hour and use that in place of butter) and they certainly did the trick.
I wrapped up batches of leftover brownies tightly in foil and recently rediscovered one of the packets in a dark cupboard. The brownies do not have any mold, there's no discoloration, and they smell fine. A tiny nibble revealed that they are amazingly still moist and fudgy.
So my question is: do I eat them?
