From the Test Kitchen
The outer crust will soften and cut easier if you wrap and store the wreath overnight
To Present This As a Gift:
You will need a round plate, scissors, red construction paper, tape, and marking pens (optional). First wash and dry the plate. Place brownie wreath in the center. Cut a bow shape from red pepper. Cut an oval for the bow center. Use a ring of tape to secure bow center. Personalize bow with marking pens, if desired. Place bow at the top of the brownie ring.
