Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix plus ingredients needed to prepare (I used Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownies)
  • 1 quart softened ice cream (I used black cherry but you can use any flavor you like)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°. Line two 8x8 square pans (see note) with foil or parchment paper, leaving a couple inches of overhang on two sides (this will allow you to easily lift the brownies out of the pan). Grease the foil or parchment, set aside
  • Prepare brownies batter according to box directions. Place half of the batter in each pan. I had 2 1/2 cups total batter, so I used 1 1/4 cups per pan. Make sure you divide the batter evenly so that the top and bottom of your sandwiches are the same thickness. Bake for about 20 minutes. You want the brownies to be just set, but still fudgy and a little underdone. We want them to stay soft once frozen, so do not overbake them.
  • Cool the pans completely set over wire racks, then cover and transfer to the refrigerator to chill completely.

Assembly:

  • Leave one of the brownie layers in the pan and remove the other layer by lifting the foil or parchment to carefully remove it. Spoon the softened ice cream onto the brownie layer that is still in the pan. Smooth the ice cream out so it is an even, flat layer. Place the other brownie layer face down on top of it, peeling off and discarding the parchment or foil. Press down lightly. Cover tightly and freeze until frozen solid, 6+ hours. Cut into squares and serve.

Notes

If you don't have two 8x8 square pans, just bake one layer of brownies, cool, then remove from the pan. Line the pan again and bake the other half of the batter.
Other ice cream flavors that would be delicious: vanilla, chocolate chip, cookie dough, mint chip, peanut butter, cookies and cream.
