- 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
