BIrthday’s in our family never come one at a time, they come all together. Last week was my husband’s birthday and my aunt’s birthday.These little treats are great for a picnic, like for fourth of July or for a birthday because their portable and single serve! I was nice just to be able to drop off a couple for my aunt’s birthday, so she and her husband could have a special dessert together at home after celebrating her day with her friends, and with my husband’s birthday being during the week, this is the perfect small dessert for his birthday because it can be made ahead of time!
I thought about how to make the outsides of an ice cream sandwich and I thought of my brownie recipe, just thinner and it worked out great!
while it’s melting mix your dry ingredients
then your dry ingredients and put into a 13 x 9 foil lined pan(if you want to do brownies put in 8 x 8 pan for thick brownies)
then fill with your favorite ice cream
and wrap them up
I love these a lot more than the store bought ice cream sandwiches, because the outsides are thick and fudgy and when they freeze,the brownies still stay soft and I filled them with reduced calorie ice cream, so they’re diet food right???
4 oz./blocks of semi sweet chocolate
1 stick of butter
2 TBSP heavy cream
1 7oz. jar of marshmallow fluff
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
In a double boiler or a glass bowl over a sauce pan of water(make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl) add chocolate, butter and heavy cream. Heat until chocolate melts. Meanwhile mix flour, baking powder and salt to a separate bowl and set aside. Once the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl from the pan and add marshmallow and mix with a hand mixer until combine, then add eggs one at a time. Once mixed fold in the flour and pour into a greased foil lined pan(lining your pan with foil will help you remove them from the pan and allow you to neatly cut them). Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the side start pull away from the pan. Allow them to cool on the counter then move them in to the refrigerator to get nice and cold, then cut them with cookie cutter, fill them with ice cream and freeze!
