It’s kinda funny – I am FREEZING as I type this post. It’s November and probably 50 degrees outside (anything below 75 degrees is chilly to this desert dweller), but I’ll tell you one thing, despite my chicken skin and shivering hands I’d have a big bowl of this next to me if I had any left — it’s that good. And really it doesn’t need to be a warm summer day to crave ice cream, especially when it’s this delicious and easy to make.
Wow your family and friends this holiday season and serve this delight instead of pumpkin or pecan pie…or better yet serve it alongside the traditional desserts.
You may recall last month I threw Miss Jax a super adorable Halloween party and served up adorable pumpkin patch brownies made with Fairytale Brownies. Well, I had just a few of those sensational treats leftover and had the brilliant idea to add them to the two ingredient ice cream that’s all over social media. You’ve probably seen the viral videos or posts for no-churn ice cream by now. It’s literally only two ingredients and maybe 10 minutes of your time to prepare.
Well, this is my take on that simplicity adding two more ingredients to the mix for a sweet and creamy chocolate ice cream that will blow your mind.
Sweet & Simple Brownie Ice Cream
- 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream, cold
- 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 oz)
- 1 Cup Chopped Brownie Pieces (I used 4 Fairytale Brownie Sprites)
- 2 Heaping Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Using an electric or stand mixer, beat the heavy cream with the cocoa powder until stiff peaks form – this will take 2-3 minutes. Do not over beat.
- Add the sweetened condensed milk to the whipped cream and gently fold in to combine. Do not over mix, if you do you will lose volume and creaminess.
- Carefully mix in the brownie chunks, be mindful not to deflate the creamy mixture.
- Transfer into an airtight, freezer safe container and smooth the top to create a flat surface. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours.
- Scoop and enjoy!
Make sure your container is airtight. I went the extra step of laying a piece of wax paper directly on top of the ice cream to prevent freezer burn. But honestly this ice cream is so delicious it won’t be in the freezer long enough to get freezer burn.
P.S. Be prepared to never, ever buy ice cream again!
