Brownie and Ice Cream Layered Dessert

Monday, September 24, 2007

Well… the name pretty much explains it all, lol! This is more of a dessert idea rather than a recipe but this was a great way to liven up a boring weeknight! Justin and I picked heart shaped cookie cutters, Andrew picked a flower, and Abbott picked a cross. The pictures of each are below, but my brownies were still a bit warm so they were quickly melting as I snapped a photo!

Brownies (purchased or prepared)
Ice Cream
Whipped Topping
Syrups, Sprinkles, and Cherries

You need to remove the brownies from their pan so you can cut shapes using cookie cutters. I prepared my brownies from a box so I lined the 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper so that I could easily flip the pan once the brownies cool. Each person picked out a cookie cutter and cut their brownie, once you have your shape set the brownie aside. Place the cookie cutter on a plate and begin to scoop ice cream into the cookie cutter, leveling the scoops until the cookie cutter shape is filled with ice cream. Using you scoop to hold the ice cream down slowly remove the cookie cutter. You should be left with a ice cream cut out of your shape. Using a spatula transfer the ice cream cut out to the top of your brownie shape. Top with whipped topping and choice of syrup, sprinkles, and cherries.
