  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, letting foil hang 2 inches over sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box. Spread in pan.
  • 2
    Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out clean. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely in pan, about 1 hour. Freeze in pan 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Using foil to lift, remove brownies from pan, and peel foil away. Frost top with frosting; sprinkle with candy sprinkles. For easier cutting, refrigerate 15 minutes to set frosting.
  • 4
    Use sharp knife to cut brownies into 6 rows by 4 rows, making 24 brownies, cleaning knife with paper towel after each cut to keep frosting clean of brownie crumbs. Pull brownie squares slightly apart before piping tops.
  • 5
    On each frosted brownie, pipe 2 lines using red icing across top to intersect in middle. Place in center 5 red M&M’s™ tipped on sides in a circle for a bow. Repeat with remaining brownie squares. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • To easily line the bottom of the pan, tip upside down and form foil around bottom and sides. Flip pan over, and place foil insert inside pan for a perfect fit!
  • Be creative and use different colored icing, frosting and candies for your next celebration!
