Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Every summer, we start off the season with a simple summer bucket list. It’s a fun way to ensure everyone gets to do at least a couple things that make the season special for them. My daughter always puts baking brownies at the top of her summer list. She really puts it at the top of every list to be honest! :)

We switched it up a bit this summer and baked these brownie ice cream sandwiches together and they were a HUGE hit! I mean…

Brownies are great.

Ice cream is great.

Together they reach a whole new level of amazing!

How to bake great brownies

The great thing about using a Pillsbury™ brownie mix (which we purchased at Kroger) is that the recipe is so easy my 9 year old can quickly whip them up. It makes the baking process way more fun for us when we only need a couple simple ingredients and the steps are basic. We’ve sometimes tried more complicated recipes together, and while we can do them – they are not nearly as fun.

I’d rather focus on fun during the summer and add in our own special details to the process. The sprinkle addition was pure 9 year old fun! Also, these llama napkins were all her idea. I love the minds of my kids.

After trying a number of different brownie related recipes, I’ve found that a good boxed version competes with any homemade rendition of the treat easily.

One trick we learned in making the best brownies for this recipe is to stir the mix with a fork instead of a whisk. Not only is it easier to clean when you’re done, but the fork ensures you are not over mixing, ensuring your brownies have that perfect crusty top and soft interior mix to them.
