Tools You Need to Make Brownies from Scratch
How to Make Brownies from Scratch
Mix the brownie ingredients. In a 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.
Bake and roll out the brownies. 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.

- Melt chocolate. 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.
- Assemble the ice cream sandwiches. 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.
