Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

So you know I made dairy-free chocolate ice cream.
And you also know I made simple vegan brownies.
Well then, may the two worlds collide into one delicious sandwich.

An ice cream sandwich, that is.

These little guys were a no brainer. I love ice cream sandwiches and always have. Ask anyone who saw me as a child with a constant ring of ice cream around my mouth.

Anytime I have ice cream in the house and anything half resembling a cookie, I mash them together. Don’t ask.

Because my brownies were tall, I  sliced them in half and sandwiched the ice cream in between. With thinner brownies you can simply stack two. But if you did that with these you would need four more mouths to get your lips around them. Dessert shouldn’t be that strenuous in my opinion.

These sandwiches are so simple to throw together and you can really use any ice cream or brownie you have on hand. I was tempted to add a layer of caramel in between but decided to be a purist for once and let them be. But next time, nuts, caramel, and sprinkles – I’m calling your name.

If you’re wondering why this brownie is so close to your face, blame it on THIS LENS – the love of my food photography life right now. Talk about details. You’d be wise to snatch one up. More deets on what’s in our camera bag here.

  • Remove ice cream from the freezer to let soften.
  • In the meantime, gently cut brownies in half with a serrated knife.
  • Line a 1/2 cup measuring cup with plastic wrap and pack with softened ice cream. Fold the plastic wrap over the bottom tightly and remove from measuring cup. Loosely form with hands into a disc. Place in freezer. Repeat until you have four. Freeze for 15 minutes or until slightly hardened.
  • Unwrap ice cream and place on top of brownies. Top with the other half and gently squeeze the two together to make a snug sandwich. Eat immediately or re-wrap with plastic wrap and store in a freezer safe bag or container for up to a week or so. Best when eaten fresh.

    I’m currently jumping from vegetarian to vegan (it’s a tough process in this country) and I absolutely love your blog!! Every recipe is to die for!

  2. sophie says

    If the brownies seem a bit fragile should freeze them before I sandwich them with ice cream? I’m afraid it will crumble. I made the gluten free black bean brownies and can’t wait to put them together tomorrow morning!

    Double the chocolate = double the fun! I love ice cream too and can hardly go a day in summer without it. These look awesome!

  4. Giulia says

    I love how soft chewy brownies play off ice cream. I made cherry ice cream brownie sandwiches in June and posted them.

  5. Lily @ Life, Love, and Cupcakes says

    I usually smoosh my ice cream between cookies, but brownies sounds pretty awesome!! I think I have a whoopie pie pans somewhere that would bake them in to the perfect shape too!

  6. Stephanie @ Girl Versus Dough says

    I just thought about dipping these sandwiches in sprinkles and then my eyes got real wide and now THAT IS ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT. Brownies + ice cream + sandwiches + sprinkles = GET IN MAH BELLY.
