Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yield: 16 servings


  • 1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients to prep it.
  • 1 carton (1.75 qt) ice cream
    • Use whatever flavor you'd like.  I used Cookies and Cream.
    • Step #3 will be easier if you get ice cream in a square block.  I.e., not a rounded cylinder or other shape.


  1. Prepare the brownie batter according to package directions.  Bake in an 8" x 8" baking pan.  Cool completely and refrigerate to harden.
  2. Cut the brownies into a 4x4 grid, yielding 16 brownies.  Slice each in half horizontally, creating a "top" and "bottom."
  3. Using a sharp knife and cutting board, cut the ice cream into "slabs" approximately 3/4" thick.  Cut each slab into squares the same size and the brownies.  Build a sandwich out of each brownie.
    • I initially tried cutting through the box with a serrated knife.  While it worked, it was a pain.  Instead, I would recommend removing all the ice cream from the package as a single block, and then slicing off slabs.
  4. Wrap the brownies in plastic wrap and return to the freezer until ready to serve.
  5. Serve frozen directly from the freezer.
