Brownie ice cream sandwiches using my favorite brownie recipe and my homemade s’mores ice cream recipe!
Two days ago I shared a life changing S’mores Brownie Ice Cream recipe. Today, we’re going to take it the next level & turn it into brownie ice cream sandwiches. Because it’s necessary & totally worth the extra effort & calories, duhhh!
In the last post we talked about how to make homemade, no-churn ice cream so I won’t go over all of that again. You can read more about it on the S’mores Brownie Ice Cream post. Today we’ll talk about taking your homemade ice cream to the next level, making ice cream sandwiches. So you can do this with basically any brownie recipe & ice cream recipe. I used the s’mores ice cream & brownie recipe from the S’mores Brownie Ice Cream post & I will post the recipe below as well if you would like to use it.
How To Make Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches?
To make brownie ice cream sandwiches I followed the recipe with the following changes:
- Make a double batch of brownies for this amount of ice cream or half the amount of ice cream for 1 batch of brownies.
- Make sure to use a pan at least 9″x13″, or slightly larger, for my brownie recipe or your brownie layer will be too thick (you can smush it down with your hands a little after it’s done baking if it still looks a bit thick).
- Line your baking pans so you can easily remove brownies from them. Set one aside aside (top of sandwich) & leave one in the pan (bottom of sandwich).
- Once your brownies are done baking, allow them to cool before freezing one of them in the pan, for a little while, to make sure it’s chilled before putting ice cream on top.
- Layer ice cream, as directed in recipe below, on top of the brownie in the pan.
- Freeze ice cream over bottom brownie for a couple hours before placing top layer of brownie.
- Freeze the whole thing until solid, preferably overnight.
- Once solid, remove from pan (with your lined baking sheet) & slice into desired size ice cream sandwiches (I used a hot knife to get clean slices).
- No-churn ice cream melts faster than other ice creams so work quickly & refreeze once sliced. Serve immediately out of the freezer.
I know that seems like a lot of work but it’s really not that bad, just make sure to follow the instructions so you don’t get a goopy melted mess. Also it’s like totally worth it cuz they’re amazing & are definitely going to win you some brownie points! #punintended *winky-face emoji*. If you make these, make sure to tag me @baranbakery on instagram, I’d love to see your creations in the kitchen & share them with the rest of our tribe! As always,
- 2 batches of brownies
- 1 (2qt) batch of homemade or store bought ice cream
- Make two batches of my perfect fudge brownies and bake them in a lined and greased 9x13" pan for 25-30 minutes.
- If you only have one pan, make the first one, let it cool completely to room temperature and then remove it. Bake the second batch of brownies, let them cool in the pan and then freeze the brownies in the pan.
- Make one batch of my s'mores brownie ice cream but skip adding the brownies to the ice cream.
- Remove the brownies from the freezer, take out the top one and set it aside.
- While the ice cream is still soft, spread the ice cream on top of the brownie in the pan. Freeze the pan for 1-2 hours and then gently place the second layer of brownie on top of the ice cream. Cover the pan and freeze it overnight.
- Remove the ice cream sandwhich from the freezer and slice into 15 pieces (you can probably get 24 slices but it's more difficult the smaller they are).
