Brownie and ice cream may just be one of the best combinations ever created. (Yes, even up there with chocolate and peanut butter and ketchup and fries.)
So, we’re making it even easier to enjoy one of the classics: the brownie ice cream sandwich. A perfect after school treat for kids, and let’s face it a much needed post-work snack for parents, we enlisted to help of the Beverly Hills Brownie Company in creating a homemade version without the headache.
Here’s what you’ll need: Brownies (your favorite recipe or boxed mix is fine), ice cream, a 2 oz. ice cream scooper, a large knife, a ziplock bag, some sheets of parchment paper, and a plastic dish.
1. Put the baked brownies in a plastic bag and store in freezer for a couple of hours. Once they’re nice and hard, cut the brownie in half diagonally.
2. Position each half on its cut edge, and cut both pieces in half again. Arrange the pieces open-faced on a plastic dish. Place one 2 oz. scoop of ice cream on two of the open-face halves, and use your fingers to gently spread the ice cream into position to cover the entire half. Don’t push down, or the brownie will break. Gently place the remaining 2 brownie pieces on top of the ice cream, barely pushing down to secure.
3. Immediately put the sandwich halves in the freezer to harden for at least another hour or so. Once frozen, wrap the two halves together in parchment, and either store them in the freezer or serve immediately.
