What should you do with your leftover brownies?
Make ice cream sandwiches!
Sometimes the easiest things to make are the best. What could be better than a chocolaty brownie and your favorite ice cream? Not much!
My favorite ice cream is Chocolate Chip Mint, so that's what I used. You can substitute your favorite to customize your ice cream sandwich.
Set your favorite ice cream flavor out on the counter to soften for about 10 min. Take two brownies, add a scoop of ice cream on one brownie. Take the top brownie and push down the ice cream to mold the sandwich. Drizzle some chocolate fudge or syrup on top. Enjoy!
Here's a brownie recipe that I really like.
1/2 cup vegetable oil1 cup white sugar*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use cooking spray to grease a 9x9 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs. In another bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the egg mixture until well blended.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
*Note: to reduce the carb count of this brownie substitute 1/2 cup of Splenda Sugar Blend for the sugar listed above. You need to use the sugar blend instead of all Splenda no calorie sweetener to allow the brownies to rise and use the baking properties of the actual sugar.
