Ice Cream Sundae Brownies

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. Some of you may have gotten a preview of this post Friday morning….I hit the “publish” tab waaaaay too early 🙂

So, you knew once I tried ice cream inside of cookies that I wasn’t stopping there right?!! These devilish brownies are equally as decadent as those cookies. I’m talking perfectly crisp edges, chewy centers, thick, ultra CHOCOLATY and down right delicious! The beauty of this recipe is you can personalize it with your family’s favorite ice cream. I sat in front of the ice cream section for 5 minutes before I could decide what flavor to choose 🙂

Enough talking from me….go try these….TODAY!!

Here’s your line-up of ingredients (minus the hot fudge)  Ben and Jerry’s “Phish Food” was an awesome pick I must say 🙂

Add all of your goodies to the brownie mix….*Please note:  I did not add the water since I added the ice cream and hot fudge*

Ice cream time!!

Scoop in that beautiful ice cream!! I added a heaping 1/2 cup!

Add some chocolate chips 🙂

….and some hot fudge, well when I added it, it was cold from the fridge 🙂

yes, hot fudge!!


Pour into prepared 9×13 inch baking dish. I always line mine with foil. You can pull the foil right out, cut into squares MUCH easier and it’s one less dish to wash 🙂

It’s bake time!!

Ahhhhh, no words needed 🙂

How cute is this parchment paper?! I found it at Crate&Barrel. They are actually burger liners, but I cut them into squares and LOVE them for my brownies 🙂  I believe they were $4.99.

Ice Cream Sundae Brownies

1 box Brownie Mix

2 eggs

1/2 Cup canola or vegetable oil

Heaping 1/2 Cup of your favorite Ice Cream (I used Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food)

1 1/2 Cups chocolate chips

1/4 Cup hot fudge topping (chilled)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix the brownie mix, 2 eggs and oil until combined…and thick. I did NOT add the water. Scoop in ice cream, chocolate chips and hot fudge; mix until combined. Pour into a foil lined 9×13 inch baking dish that’s been GENEROUSLY sprayed with cooking spray. More is better here 🙂  Bake for 40-50 minutes or until toothpick comes clean from center.

2. Let cool completely. Remove foil from baking dish, cut into squares and serve.

    I bet these would be great w/ some peanut butter and chocolate ice cream! I’m not the biggest box mix fan, but I’m sure I can sub the milk I used in my mix for the ice cream!

    Kristina says:

    wow. I have a BBQ to go to today, and was JUST wondering what I could add to brownies… Hmm.

    very serendipitous, I think. I saw your other post with ice cream, thought you were NUTS (in a GOOD way, of course, like a genius…) and these look even better. wow.

    and I love Phish Food.

  20. 20

    OMG, OMG, I am almost speechless. These are awesome and genius!!

    Oh my…of course I have to come visit when I am having a hormonal chocolate craving and see these amazing brownies. What a cool idea to add the ice cream into the mix, PLUS some chocolate sauce. Talk about heaven. I love how gooey and delicious they turn out. Send a few my way!

    Angela says:

    My son picked out Imagine Whirled Peace, a Ben and Jerry’s flavor with a carmel ice cream base, for me add to these. They are divine!! He and his friends gave them 2 thumbs up and said they would give the brownies three thumbs up if they had them.

  31. 31

    Oh my goodness! Those look SO divine! I’ll be keeping this on hand for the next time I have to take a dish somewhere. I’m imagining mint chocolate chip ice cream… Yum!

  32. 32

    Those look like the most decadent, gooey-ist (it’s a word – I’m sure of it) brownies I’ve ever seen. The ice cream method is one I must try!

    maggy says:

    These brownies look so delicious! Would never have thought to put ice cream in brownies, but I just might be a convert!

    Misty says:

    My mouth literally started watering when I saw the photo of these! I will have to make them now.. thanks for the recipe!

  37. 37
    Becky says:

    Are you kidding? I am so in love and MUST try these!

  38. 38

    Seriously, I think I will just hot glue it to my thighs. I’m certain that’s were it will end up anyways 🙂

    Mrs. L says:

    Oh Yum. Makes me wish I still had some fudge sitting in the fridge. Must remember to not eat spoonfuls next time and try this recipe!

    Carol says:

    I was going to comment sooner but I had to put my eyeballs back into the sockets…..that photo of those over-the-top-ultra-rich-ooey-gooey-decadent-squares-of-beautifuk-brownies caused them to pop right out!

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….Jenny, you’re a genius! Another recipe onto the “to try soon” pile. 🙂

  44. 44

    I am intrigued by the addition of the ice-cream!!!

  45. 45
    Fuji Mama says:

    Ok, that does it. Your a genius. I NEVER would have thought of putting ice cream in a brownie mix…but it makes so much sense! These look absolutely incredibly off the charts blow your mind amazing!!! I WILL be making them THIS weekend. I would be making them right now, but I’m going to have to make a trip to the grocery store to get 1 or 2 things first. Bummer!

  46. 46
    Lori says:

    These turn out very moist and delicious, just the way a brownie should! I love how you can mix up the recipe if you wanted to. Next time I think I’ll try adding white chocolate chips, caramel (instead of hot fudge) and a cheesecake brownie ice cream! Thanks for the recipe!

  47. 47
    Lori says:

    How can these be stored (since the contain ice cream)? The only reason they will need to be stored is because my husband and I can’t eat an entire pan. Well we can, just shouldnt 🙂

    Janet says:

    Made these today for Father’s Day, using Dreyer’s Mint Brownie ice cream. They were amazingly delicious!! Everybody loved them. Can’t wait to try the ice cream cookies 🙂

    Oh oh oh. You just went and did me in with that. That looks absolutely delicious! Gorgeous shots.

  54. 54

    Made these last night and brought them to work today for my boss’s birthday. I ate a bite of one for breakfast and am in love. I added 3 tablespoons of flour for high altitude (I’m in Denver, CO) and it worked great. Best brownies ever (and easy too!) – thank you!

  55. 55
    Lori says:

    Uh….yum. That made me want to go home and start baking so I can just sit in front of the tv tonight and watch my Netflix movies and eat brownies. That looks like the most awesome brownies EVER.

  56. 56

    You have inspired me to make brownies…. I’m about to right now! Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the recipe!

  57. 57
    Karen says:

    HOLY MOLY!!! This looks wonderful. I’m going to try these as soon as I get moved (in progress). The thought of making (and eating :)) these will get me through!

    megan says:

    I’m thinking a big ol’ scoop of that ice cream on top of a couple brownies would suit me just fine! They look incredable!

    Jenn says:

    Made mine with B&J’s Half Baked (They don’t have Phish Food in podunk, small-town Iowa). I also baked mine in a mini-cupcake pan with liners. Sold at a bake sale. Fastest sold second to puppy chow! Loved this recipe!! will use again and again.

  62. 62
    Beth says:

    OMG! This is totally not what I was looking for, but I will have to try them — and look at your other recipes too!

  63. 63

    Yummy! I love brownies and ice cream (even though I shouldn’t eat it!)…what could be better!! This looks delicious 🙂

  64. 64
    Emily says:

    So I saw these and had to make them! I used a peanut butter chocolate ice cream and added 1/2 cup of peanut butter. They turned out so delicious!!! Also…if you want to save money, the little $1 cups of ice cream are the perfect amount!

  65. 65

    Came here from SU! Baking with ice cream is the most genius thing I’ve ever seen!!

  69. 69
    Barbara says:

    That looks absolutely delicious. Mmm. I’ll have to go make it right away! Just throwing this out there: My teacher, a nurse, warned against using canola oil because it’s made from rape seed, which is poisonous to humans. The toxicity of plants is usually found in… the oil. That aside, I’mma go try this recipe now. I usually add an extra egg to make the brownies fluffier.

    Rod says:

    I just made these for our fourth of July family ordeal. All gone…

    I used the Peanut butter Ben and Jerry’s, White Chocolate chips, the combo PB/Chocolate chips, and threw in a bunch of caramel filled Hershey’s Kisses. HOLY COW! Awesome! My niece and nephews ate a bunch, and they were a hit.

  71. 71

    OMG These look amazing!

  72. 72
  73. 73

    Sorry. I was speechless. I think after a week of non-stop gym I will definitely deeply indulge in about 4 to 7 of these 😀

    Lucille says:

    Making these right now for a chocoholic friend’s birthday! I accidentally added 1/4 cup water – hope that won’t do anything (I don’t imagine it would). Also added a little more ice cream than 1/2 cup. Hoping for some soft, gooey, CHOCOLATEY brownies. Found this on Stumble – you are a godsend. THANK YOU!! <3

    Cat says:

    They look awesome, but there’s only one problem I can see. I’m from the UK and we just cannot get hold of the brownie mix, we’d have to make it all from scratch – so my only question is would it work in the same way? Oh noes…. I’m going to get stuck in the kitchen with ice cream and brownie mix. It’s a hard job but I’m willing to try…..
