    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.

    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.

    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.
