When I made Brownie Batter Ice Cream Sandwiches I found out that Zelda prefers to stick her fingers in the melting ice cream and then into her mouth. This was her second ice cream sandwich ever and maybe her last one for a little while. I on the other hand, indulged in the ice cream sandwiches and in a spoonful or seven of brownie batter before placing it in the oven. Apparently I have a serious addiction.
I was a little apprehensive about using brownie mix over cookie dough because I wasn’t sure if it would hold up to the ice cream. My fear was for nothing and the brownies made this already tasty treat extra fudgy and delicious. As I was settling into my food coma the sugar hit Zelda’s veins and she began running around the house (just in time for Dad’s arrival). He needs a challenge every once in a while, right?
The Chef’n Ice Cream Sandwich Maker was really easy to use and I didn’t run into any issues. The whole process did take some time but I think this would a fab activity for older littles to do on the weekend. Is there a dessert I haven’t made that I should know about? Tell me in the comments below!
