So. You’ve just made the best brownies ever (ahem here) and you need to take it to the next level. I have brought you the answer 😀
If you are coffee lover then this is the answer to all your ice-cream dreams. Chunks of fudgy brownie swirled in a smooth and creamy espresso ice cream, dotted with crunchy walnuts and sprinkled with flakey salt…
I am an ice-cream addict and If I could eat one food for the rest of my life there is no doubt that it will be ice-cream. The other day I was strolling through the freezer aisle looking for something to bring to my friends house in exchange for letting me use her oven (my kitchen is being renovated!) and spotted a very small tub of Ice-cream (I love Haagen dazs so much, but it is so expensive in Australia…). Brownie Macchiato. This ice-cream flavour has actually been out for a while, but I never got around to trying it, and after standing in front of the freezer for at least 20 minutes deciding between half price Milo ice cream or full price ($12?!) Haagen dazs I caved and bought it…
It was supposed to be a present for my friend since I was using her oven, but I ended up eating 70%… I eat a lot of ice-cream okay! Fast forward to a few weeks later and a fresh batch of brownies sitting on my kitchen counter I knew what I had to do. This ice-cream is better. The brownie gets even fudgier in the ice-cream, and the walnut adds the perfect amount of crunch to this smooth ice-cream. The salt is the cherry on top!
I do use an ice-cream machine to make this so If you don’t have an ice-cream maker it might be a little difficult to make this recipe, but hopefully I’ll come up with a no churn ice-cream soon! For now enjoy the pictures >< and make the brownies, trust me they’re amazing!
As usual tag me on instagram @catherine.justdessertsau and hashtag #cattycakes so I can see and share your creations. Happy ice-creaming..?!Print
