Now that summer has "un"officially started (here in AZ it's been record temps all week, 110o and above), it's time to break out the ice cream recipes to cool off! Fairytale Brownies Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect fudgy chocolate brownies mixed with cool, vanilla bean ice cream smothered in the middle to refresh yourself after a hot afternoon. Here's the recipe:
- 12 Fairytale Brownies (of any flavor). Pick brownies up at your local retailer (see locations here), or visit brownies.com and order brownies online for delivery.
- 1 1/2 quart premium Vanilla Bean ice cream (we used Alden's premium organic ice cream)
- Wax paper and twine for wrapping
Directions: Refrigerate the brownies for 30 minutes or longer. Unwrap the brownies and slice in half by carefully placing them on their sides and slowly pressing a knife through each one. Place about three heaping tablespoons of ice cream on the bottom slice. Smooth out the ice cream and place on the top half. Wrap each brownie ice cream sandwich with wax paper and tie with a piece of twine. Place in the freezer to firm up. Makes 12 servings.
Enjoy these on a hot summer day, at BBQ-s and picnics, vacation snacks, beach snacks or just to indulge! I know I will be :) ~Hilary
