A perfect springtime treat, complete with homemade brownies!
After a long, and I mean long winter I cannot tell you how happy I am to see the first signs of spring emerging. Green grass, flowers, warmer temps they are all very welcome, I’m eager to get outside and start enjoying. So are my kids, they can start heading outside to play which is a huge sigh of relief let me tell ya! Get out there kiddos and get some fresh air.
All that playing though brings my kids back indoors with some hearty appetites! Can’t complain though, all that playing burns off excess energy, hearty appetites are a fair and welcome trade-off and boy do I have a treat in store for my kids. Why not celebrate spring with our very first ice cream party of the season? Ice cream and warm weather just go hand in hand, so why not have a special treat to celebrate the warmer temps? I envisioned a layered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich for our celebration. With a pan of delicious homemade brownies, (you won’t regret this touch…worth the extra five minutes trust me), a carton of Blue Bunny® Cherrific Cheesecake Ice Cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup you’ll have the components for one truly decadent ice cream treat at home.
Now you can choose to use any variety of Blue Bunny® Ice Cream, as there’s so many incredible choices. I specifically chose Blue Bunny® Cherrific Cheesecake while shopping at Walmart because I could see the amazing swirls of cherry goodness through the new clear containers. Don’t you love seeing exactly what you’re buying? I sure do! While I was there? I also bought Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla & Blue Bunny® Mint Chocolate Chip (my boys FAVORITE). Delish!
Now let’s get to the deliciousness, shall we? You’ll find a printable version of this recipe below also! But first we start with the ingredients you’ll need.
4 large eggs
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
2 sticks of butter, melted
1 1/4 C cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
Blue Bunny® Cherrific Cheesecake
Preheat oven to 300° degrees. Line 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until they are well blended.
Add both sugars and whisk.
Add melted butter and whisk. Add remaining ingredients and whisk.
Pour mix into lined baking pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes (until you get a clean toothpick). Let cool completely before cutting. Once cooled cut Brownie in half. Take out Blue Bunny® Cherrific Cheesecake from freezer.
Pop out of container onto plate (if you use a large knife around the edge it will pop out in one piece). Slice desired thickness of ice cream for sandwiches.
Slice desired thickness of ice cream for sandwiches. Place ice cream on one half of brownie.
Now that I have you completely drooling, what’s your favorite Blue Bunny® Ice cream flavor? Next time I make this scrumptious dessert, I plan on using Salted Caramel Craze! Mmmm, I cannot wait!
