Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches


For the brownie part
dry ingredients
    • 1 cup gluten-free flour (or all-purpose flour)
    • 3 tablespoons dutch-process cocoa
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon xanthum gum (only if using gluten-free flour, optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
wet ingredients
    • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate, chopped
    • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
    • ½ cup coconut sugar
    • 1/2 cup applesauce
    • 2 teaspoons chocolate extract
For the sandwich
  • 1 large container of vegan vanilla ice cream (I used Trader Joe’s “Soy Creamy” vegan vanilla ice cream).


for the brownie part
    1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line two square baking dishes with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together your dry ingredients.
    3. Heat your cup of chopped chocolate with the vegan butter in a in a large glass bowl over a pot of boiling water. Once it is fully melted, remove from heat. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
    4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
    5. Dived the batter between the two baking dishes and spread until smooth and even. Place both dishes in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until set and the edges are pulling away from the pan slightly. Remove from oven and let cool for 1-2 hours.
make the sandwiches
  1. Once the brownies are cool, place the the two brownie dishes in the freezer. Leave there for 30 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes, take your ice cream out of the freezer. Let it sit for a few minutes to soften. Remove the brownies from the freezer.
  3. Spread ice cream on top of the brownie layer in ONE pan. Create a layer that is about ½-1 inch thick and spread out evenly.
  4. Carefully lift the brownie layer from the other dish and place on a flat surface. Very carefully, lift and place the layer on top of the ice cream layer. Gently press down to compress the sandwiches. Cover the dish and freeze for about 30-60 minutes.
  5. Remove the dish from the freezer. Use the parchment paper to lift the big sandwich from the pan and place on a flat surface, like a cutting board. Use a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter or a knife to cut out desired sandwich shapes. You will have to gently push from the bottom, underneath the parchment paper, to get the sandwiches to pop up. Place the sandwiches in an airtight container. Freeze until ready to serve. Enjoy!
