How to make brownie ice cream

  1. Make the brownies using the recipe below
  2. Make a batch of your favourite chocolate ice cream
  3. Break the brownies into small pieces (or big if that’s what you like) and add to the ice cream as it’s almost finished churning.

A quick tip

After making the brownies, add them to the freezer for a couple of hours before adding to your ice cream. You don’t want to add them still warm as it will effect the texture of your ice cream.

The fast method

If you’re short on time, simply buy a tub of chocolate ice cream and mix in these delicious homemade brownies.

This recipe lets you bake two layers of brownie in two baking pans. Then you can scoop your favourite ice cream onto the first layer of brownie and top with the second layer. Add your masterpiece to the freezer until everything is nice and firm, then slice into your preferred size.

Brownie Recipe

Prep Time: 20 mins


  • 85 grams good quality chopped chocolate (at least 70% cacao)
  • 110 grams unsalted butter, (plus some extra for greasing the pans)
  • 180 grams granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 85 grams plain flour


  1. Heat oven to 180°C. Line two 20cm square baking pans with buttered baking paper.
  2. Place a medium bowl (must be heat-proof) over a pot of simmering water. Ensure the bowl isn't touching th water. Gently melt chocolate and butter until almost melted then remove from heat and stir until fully melted.
  3. Stir in sugar until fully combined and then stir in eggs and vanilla. Mix in salt and flour until just combined.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the two pans and smooth over the top. Bake on two racks for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out without any batter on it.
  5. Once brownies have cooled a little transfer them to the freezer (don't remove the brownies from the pans). They'll need to stay in there for about 20 minutes before adding the ice cream.
