Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

I love brownies.  Something about chocolate I suppose.  I’ve tried dozens of recipes, I’ve made mint brownies, raspberry brownies, brownies with peanut butter, or a cheesecake swirl.  

One of my favorite ways to eat a brownie, though, is with a scoop of good ice cream and some hot fudge.  This is our “family night” version of a brownie sundae.  A bit gussied up for company.


  • 1 1 /2 cups unsalted butter (if using salted, only add 1/4 tsp of salt called for in recipe)
  • 6 (1 oz) squares unsweetened chocolate (I generally use the Baker’s Brand I find in my local supermarket)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 c flour
  • mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a large rimmed cookie pan (half sheet=11″x17″).  In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter and chocolate.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.  

Add eggs, one at a time, and stir until blended.  Add vanilla, salt and flour.  Mix well.  Pour batter into prepared baking pan and sprinkle with a handful or two of mini chocolate chips.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Cool completely on wire rack.


  • brownies (cut into squares)
  • a brick of good quality ice cream, any flavor you like
  • favorite hot fudge sauce
  • mini chocolate chips

Remove ice cream from container (if using the square box…otherwise you can just scoop) and cut into squares using a cleaver.  Work quickly!  If ice cream gets too soft, put it back in the freezer for a bit.  To assemble sandwiches, place one brownie square on plate, top with a square of ice cream, a drizzle of fudge, and another brownie.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Alternately, just place a scoop of ice cream between the brownies.  A different look, but simpler to assemble and equally tasty!
