Double Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

The things I do for my kids I tell you. If you have kids like mine, you soon realize that the only thing they have on their mind are sweet treats. The waffle in the morning now becomes the chocolate chip waffle. Lunch is fairly neutral, a quick dinner, then the big question is always, and I mean always, ‘what’s for dessert?’.

The kids could eat desserts all day if they were allowed. Frozen yogurts could replace lunch and dinner, and they would still ask, ‘what’s for dessert?’.

Double Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream Recipe

I pretty much stopped by store bought ice cream months ago when I purchased the ice cream maker, and now desserts are easy. I have answers for them every time. ‘Ice cream!’. They know me all too well being that I am in the kitchen most of the time, and they know it is probably not going to be a standard vanilla or chocolate ice cream. So my response this week was, ‘We are having double fudge ice cream!’. Cheers and laughter was embedded in the kitchen, and wow, was this ever a big hit.

Left over brownies crumbled up in fresh made ice cream make this one a real treat. I thought my cookies and cream was a real hit, but this one is a real competitor.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cold milk, placed in the freezer for about 10 minutes
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of heavy cream, placed in the freezer for about 10 minutes
  • 1/2 sheet of left over brownies, crumbled (I like these)

Begin by freezing the ice cream bowl, as it is very important that it is completely frozen. Begin by adding the milk and sugar to a mixing bowl, and mix with a whisk until all of the sugar dissolves. Add in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Assemble your ice cream maker, and turn it on, adding in your mixture. About 20 minutes into the mixing, add in the crumbled brownies, and let it spin another 5-10 minutes.

Place the bowl in the freezer for another hour or so, then remove the bowl, and get your scoops on. Trust me, this is a real winner, and a great dessert.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. This ice cream looks scrumptious!! I have been thinking about buying an ice cream maker…after seeing this recipe I think I need one now. Yum, yum, yum!!

  2. Sounds delicious, and I love that you don’t have to fuss over eggs and tempering. My kids would dig it too. They pretty much live by the words, “What do I have to eat to get m&ms?” haha My girl would forfeit her m&ms for this ice cream – no contest.
