Brownie ice cream sandwiches are a quirky twist on a classic American pudding.

Ice cream sandwiches are normally made with chocolate chip cookies. But in our brownie ice cream sandwich recipe, we've gone for thin layers of rich chocolate brownie to make them even more special. These brownie sandwiches are decadent and delicious. Ideal for all occasions from family film night to a unique dinner party dessert.


  • 2 x 180g bars dark chocolate, broken into squares
  • 45g unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 45g plain flour
  • ¼tsp baking powder
  • 500ml tub Salted Caramel Ice Cream

You will need

  • 2 baking sheets, lined with baking parchment




  1. Heat the oven to 180°C. Put all the chocolate in a bowl, resting over a pan of simmering water ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water, with the butter.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until pale, thick and creamy. Fold in the sieved flour and baking powder, and chocolate mixture to evenly combine. Leave for 10 minutes.
  3. Drop equal spoonfuls of the mixture on to the lined baking trays, spacing them well apart so that if they spread they don’t join together. Bake for 10 minutes, until puffed up and cracked. Cool on a wire rack.
  4. Cut off packaging from ice cream – cut in half vertically, then slice each into 6. Sandwich the brownie cookies together with ice cream. Return to the freezer until you’re ready to serve these delicious brownie and ice cream sandwiches.

Top tips for making brownie ice cream sandwiches:

While these taste great after they've been freshly made, for the real experience, leave your brownie ice cream sandwiches in the freezer overnight. This will help the brownie stick to the ice cream and create an overall sweet, cold treat.
