Brownie Ice Cream Cake

Why buy when you can make your own? This is very rich and tastes like a brownie, candy bar, ice cream cake. Use any flavor ice cream you wish – for the picture I used vanilla.

2 measuring cups of semi-sweet morsels
12 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. prepared, black coffee (optional – this will give it a mocha flavor)
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
4 extra large eggs
1cup flour
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 pint of ice cream – your choice
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 Tbsp. butter

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a springform pan. Take eggs out and set on counter while oven preheats. Meanwhile in a small saucepan melt the butter and 1 cup of morsels over low heat until melted; remove from heat and empty melted chocolate into a medium bowl and cool off for 5 minutes.

With a wooden spoon, mix in coffee and vanilla just till the count of 10; add eggs one at a time and mix with wooden spoon for the count of 10 after each – you want to mix only till combined. Add the flour and salt only till combined. Empty into the springform pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until just set – top will have the browinie crackling-look. Set aside to cool completely.

Soften the ice cream and spread it carefully over the brownie layer then freeze for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile melt the other 1 cup of morsels, whipping cream, 2 Tbsp. butter and the other 2 Tbsp. coffee until smooth. Set it aside to cool, then gently pour over the ice cream and carefully swirl it around. Freeze for 2-3 hours before slicing. When ready to eat let it set on the counter for about 10 minutes then unmold and enjoy.
