Whenever I hear that ice cream truck jingle, I think of ice cream sandwiches. I am a bit like Pavlov's dog in that regard. The combination of cold, cream and chocolate on a hot summer's day is as good as it gets for my sweet tooth.
You can easily recreate and improve the Good Humor man's version with brownie mix. Use your own recipe or your favorite brand. We are pretty impartial around here. When the heat rises we are relentlessly experimenting with our own.
Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches
For the Dry ingredients use the following;
Combine the contents of the package with
- ½ Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Egg
- 1/8 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Sugar
Mix well and add chocolate chips or nuts if you want something fancy. Pour the batter in a thin layer on to a greased cookie sheet. The brownies should cook for about 15 minutes or until a cake tester inserted 1 inch from the side of the pan comes out clean. Once cooled, cut brownies into squares or use a glass for circles. Put 1 scoop of your desired ice cream between 2 pieces. If you want to be fancy roll in nuts, candy crumbles or sprinkles and enjoy!
