Brownie Bottom & PB Ice Cream Cake

One of my all time favorite desserts is simple: a good brownie with ice cream on top. For some reason a rich, gooey brownie topped with ice cream is the perfect combination of decadence and creaminess. We’ve entered spring, and I’ve been craving ice cream like crazy! That’s when I got this crazy idea to make a homemade ice cream cake. Brownie bottom ice cream cake to be exact. Ice cream cake is such a treat and reminds me of special birthdays growing up in the hot desert. It’s been so warm that I wanted to make a delicious and fun spring time dessert. 

This recipe was too good and simple not to share and is perfect for the warm spring and summer months! Kiddos and adults alike loved this!

Spreading the ice cream onto the brownies!

Blue Bunny® recently came out with our new 2017 lineup of ice cream flavors and treats. One flavor that we’re really excited about is PB ‘N Cone™, which has swirls of creamy peanut butter and crunchy chocolate dipped cone pieces throughout delicious vanilla ice cream.

Love the sprinkles!

I opted for my favorite: chocolate chip brownies with Blue Bunny® PB ‘N Cone™ ice cream, a layer of whip cream, and sprinkles on top. This recipe was gone in a day or two and was a hit with both kids and adults. It tastes extra delicious out of the freezer and microwaved for just 5 seconds. I had to stop myself because I wanted to keep eating it!

    Great recipe idea for the warm spring and summer months! My wife and I like Blue Bunny ice cream, whipped cream and brownies, so the 3 combined would be heavenly! Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and this would be a great recipe for our family to try.

    If I show this to my daughter, she is going to want one for her next birthday for sure! I like how festive this cake is and how it can be used for parties and get-togethers without having to invest in an expensive cake. I purchased an ice cream cake for her last birthday, so I know this for sure!

    Oh my goodness .. now that is a cake! You’re right .. there’s nothing better than a brownie with a big scoop of ice cream on top. A few sprinkles to top it off and all is again well with the world!
