Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches
It shows no sign of getting any cooler this summer here in Albuquerque, but I’m of the belief that anything over 82 degrees is just hot. Don’t bother me with numbers, just say it is HOT. It is 88 degrees today instead of 97, but that doesn’t make me feel better about the heat. Do you know what does make me feel better? All. The. Ice. Cream. Besides cocktails, it’s my favorite way to cool down. And these Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches are just what Mother Nature ordered. Like I want to meet whoever decided to slap ice cream between two brownie and just kiss them.
This Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich recipe is made totally from scratch! Of course, you can use a brownie mix and prepare the brownies according to the instructions on the box. I don’t mind taking the time to put some extra love into homemade food, especially because it always taste better! And you get to be in control of what ingredients go into your food.

How to Make Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray no-stick baking spray on the bottom of an 8 x 8 inch pan or line with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Break chocolate bar into small pieces and put into a medium microwavable bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments, stirring until chocolate is melted. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, mix together sugar, brown sugar and eggs. Set aside.
In a separate microwavable bowl, melt the butter. Add melted butter to the bowl with sugar and eggs and combine. Pour in the melted chocolate and mix until combined.
Fold in the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
Pour into prepared pan and cook in oven for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. You do not want the brownies to be hard or crumbly.
After the brownies are cooled completely, remove carefully from pan and place on parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll brownies until they are cookie height, about ¼ inch thick. Cut the rolled out brownies in half, so you have two large brownie pieces.
Spread ice cream on half of the brownie. Place the other half on top making one large brownie ice cream sandwich.
Cut into 6 brownie ice cream sandwiches.
Put almond bark into a small microwavable bowl and microwave in 20 second increments until melted. Pour melted almond bark into a plastic baggie and twist the end to close the bag. Cut a corner off of the bag and drizzle the almond bark over the brownies. Sprinkle the brownie ice cream sandwiches with additional chocolate chips.
Eat right away, or place the brownie ice cream sandwiches into a freezer bag or freezer safe container and freeze until ready to enjoy!
