Ice Cream Sundae Brownies

Tags: , ,

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.

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

    These look so moist and squishy, the ice cream must be the secret ingredient. I think I might add ice cream to everything I bake now!

    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!

    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!

    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!!!

    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!

    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 🙂
