Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice cream sandwiched between two rich and fudgy brownies. Add sprinkles, nuts, or cookie crumbs to make your ice cream sandwiches more festive!

Ingredients

1/2
cup melted butter (1 stick)
1/2
teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1
box Betty Crocker™ Family size brownie mix
2
large eggs
2
tablespoons water
Sprinkles, nuts, or cookie crumbs

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two 9 inch by 13 inch baking pans with non-stick foil or parchment paper.
  • 2 For a really rich tasting brownie, stir espresso powder into melted butter, then combine it with the brownie mix, eggs, and water.
  • 3 Stir 50 strokes. There will be some lumps remaining.
  • 4 Spread half of the brownie batter into an even layer in one of the 9x13 pans. Spread remaining batter in the second 9x13 pan.
  • 5 Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • 6 Remove lid from ice cream carton and using a serrated knife, cut the entire carton of ice cream in half lengthwise. This is a very easy way to get the ice cream out of the carton.
  • 7 Peel off the carton and set both pieces of ice cream over the whole brownie that is still in the baking pan.
  • 8 Take the remaining brownie out of the pan and set it upside down on the ice cream. Press gently all over brownie to secure it to the ice cream. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • 9 Remove from freezer. Cut into 10 rectangle ice cream sandwiches.
  • 10 If you'd like to make your ice cream sandwiches a bit more festive, roll the edges in sprinkles, nuts, or cookie crumbs.
  • 11 Wrap individually in plastic wrap, and put all ice cream sandwiches in a large zip top bag.
  • 12 You can store these in the freezer for up to a month.

Step By Step  

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

As prepared by Hungry Happenings,

Simply sandwich some creamy vanilla ice cream between two fudgy brownies and I promise you: Kids (and adults) will not run after the ice cream truck!


It's National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, and these frozen treats are really easy to make. With only a box of Betty Crocker Brownie Mix and store-bought ice cream, even kids can help. They'll have fun making ice cream sandwiches their own by adding colorful sprinkles, nonpareils, or jimmies.

For a more adult flavor, add chopped nuts, toasted coconut, or even cookie crumbs or just leave them plain. Any way you make them, they’ll taste much better than an ice cream sandwich out of a box or off a truck! Here’s how…

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two 9 inch by 13 inch baking pans with non-stick foil or parchment paper.

For a really rich-tasting brownie, stir espresso powder into melted butter, then combine it with the brownie mix, eggs, and water.

 

Brownie batter in a mixing bowl

Stir 50 strokes. There will be some lumps remaining.

 

Spreading batter in pan

Spread half of the brownie batter into an even layer in each of the pans.

 

Baked brownie in pan

Bake at 350F for 12-14 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.

 

Cutting brownie

Remove just one of the brownies from its pan. Peel away the tinfoil and set it upside down on a cutting board. Cut the brownie into 10 equally sized rectangles, cutting off the edges if you want perfect rectangles. You can eliminate this step, but once the ice cream sandwiches are frozen it makes the whole cutting process easier and neater.

 

Cutting ice cream

Remove the lid from the ice cream carton and, using a serrated knife, cut the entire carton of ice cream in half lengthwise. This is a very easy way to get the ice cream out of the carton, plus then it's already in a nice rectangular shape.

 

Peel off the carton and set both pieces of ice cream over the whole brownie that is still in the baking pan.

 

Spreading softened ice cream

Allow ice cream to soften just enough so that you can spread it evenly over the brownie.

 

Ice cream-topped brownie

 

Freezing brownies

Set the cut rectangle pieces of brownie over top of the ice cream. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours.

 

Cutting ice cream sandwiches

Remove from freezer. Make cuts along the edges of the rectangular brownie pieces, creating 10 ice cream sandwiches. Snack on any excess ice cream or brownie pieces.

 

Adding sprinkles

If you'd like to make your ice cream sandwiches a bit more festive, roll the edges in sprinkles, nuts, or cookie crumbs.

 

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches, ready to eat

Wrap individually in plastic wrap, and put all ice cream sandwiches in a large zip top bag. You can store these in the freezer for up to a month, but I doubt they’ll last that long!
