Why settle for an ordinary store bought ice cream sandwich when you can have one of these sweet Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches on a Stick?
Each has vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between two brownies and is dipped in a thin layer of chocolate. They are amazing just like that, but you can take them over the top by adding some sprinkles, rainbow chips or nuts.
To make your own pops, you need to start by making a Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix and spread half of it into each of two 9x13 pans.
Once the thin brownies are baked and cooled, remove one from the pan and cut it into 16 rectangles. Cutting them will make cutting the ice cream filled sandwiches much easier later on.
Speaking of easier, if you cut your carton of ice cream in half...
...you can place each half on the un-cut brownie and allow it to soften before spreading it into an even layer. The ice cream will come out of the carton really easily, so you don't have to spend time scooping it all out.
Next, arrange the cut brownie over top of the ice cream.
Now, you need to get the sticks into the ice cream sandwiches, but they are way too soft to cut right now, so freeze them for about an hour to firm them up slightly. Then remove them and cut them into 16 ice cream sandwiches and insert a stick into each.
You might need to do this in stages because the ice cream will soften up as you are working. If needed, just pop them back in the freezer for a few minutes, until they become firm enough to cut. With the sticks inserted, you can freeze the ice cream sandwiches until they are really firm, so the sticks stay put.
While you are waiting, get the chocolate dip made by mixing some coconut oil into melted chocolate. (If you use virgin coconut oil, your pops will have a slight coconut flavor to them. If you prefer a cleaner chocolate flavor, be sure to use refined coconut oil.)
Once your pops are frozen solid, dip them in the chocolate and very quickly sprinkle on your choice of topping. The chocolate will harden before you know it, so move fast.
Pop them back in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
