How to Cut Out and Decorate Brownies:

Press cookie cutter down into cooled brownies to cut. Lift up and push brownie up through cutter to remove. Use decorating icings to draw small items, such as bunny eyes, nose and mouth. Use colored sprinkles to create outline for clothing (vests, bow ties, etc.), then use assorted colored sugars to fill in the designs. Use FARLEY'S Gum Drops, cut into shapes, to create carrots and leaves.
