  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • Vanilla ice cream about 1 liter/4 ½ cups
  • Sprinkles and mini chocolate chips to decorate if desired
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the butter and sugars.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder, cocoa, and salt. The batter will be thick.
  5. Spread half of the batter into the prepared baking pan using a spatula or your hands to smooth it out.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove the parchment paper with the brownie on it from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.
  7. Repeat with remaining batter.
  8. While the brownies cool place your container of ice cream in the refrigerator to soften.
  9. When both brownie sheets have cooled completely place one back into the pan with the parchment paper.
  10. Use a spatula to spread the softened ice cream over the top.
  11. Place the second brownie sheet on top of the ice cream and gently press down.
  12. Place the pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours, until ice cream is firm.
  13. When the ice-cream has refrozen remove from the pan using the parchment paper to lift it out.
  14. Use a sharp knife to cut into bars.
  15. To decorate, place the sprinkles or mini chocolate chips on a plate and push each edge of the bars into them.
  16. Serve immediately or wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper and freeze until ready to serve.
