TIP OF THE DAY: Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich

We enjoy making ice cream sandwiches with chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies.

But we’ve grown to prefer brownie ice cream sandwiches. They become more of an ice cream cake experience, and ice cream cake (or ice cream and cake) just might be our favorite comfort food.

Brownie ice cream sandwiches will be a hit at your next party or special event; or keep them in the freezer as a regular treat. Either way, make them in advance (see note below for a party activity); then wrap in plastic (individually or the whole tray/sheet) and freeze.

  • Slice the brownie in half horizontally, and use a spatula to fill with slightly softened ice cream and lop off the excess ice cream. If you’re using ice cream in a rectangular package, you can remove the block of ice cream and slice the ice cream into pieces that fit the brownie.

  • If you cut the brownies into two-inch squares instead of a larger size, you’ll be able to have the treats more frequently with fewer calories.
    Have fun mixing and matching brownie and ice cream flavors: a chocolate chip brownie with chocolate chip mint ice cream, a peanut butter brownie with peanut butter ice cream, a raspberry brownie with raspberry ice cream, and so forth.

    You can add an extra layer of “inclusions”: chopped nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, crushed toffee, mini M&Ms and so forth.

    As an alternative, dip the edges of the ice cream in them. But while the dipped edges look more exciting, when you layer the extras you won’t have bits of them falling onto the floor.

    PARTY DESSERT: Set up a brownie ice cream sandwich bar with halved brownies, pre-cut ice cream rectangles (place the tray of ice cream atop a tray of ice) and bowls of inclusions. It can get messy, but it’s fun.
