How To Make Brownie Sundae (Applebee’s Copycat)

Rich and decadent, this brownie sundae inspired by Applebee’s dessert has a luscious bittersweet brownie on a creamy vanilla ice cream.

Preparation: 7 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 37 minutes



For Brownies:

  • 1⅓cupflour
  • 1tspbaking soda
  • 1tspsalt
  • 4tbspunsalted butter
  • 1cupgranulated sugar
  • 4tbspwater
  • 12ozsemi-sweet chocolate chips,or dark
  • 4eggs,lightly beaten
  • 2tspvanilla

For Sundaes:

  • vanilla ice cream,(1 scoop per sundae)
  • 2tbsphot fudge,per sundae
  • whipped cream
  • peanuts,chopped, (optional) and sprinkles


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9×9-inch baking dish, line with parchment paper, and then butter the parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk in the sugar and water. Cook until the sugar is dissolved. Take care not to brown the butter.

  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips until melted.

  5. Very gradually mix in the eggs, starting with just a little, whisking in completely, and then adding a little more. This lets the eggs temper and not curdle in the warm chocolate. Stir in the vanilla.

  6. Mix in the flour mixture.

  7. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. The brownies will puff up in the oven, but they’ll fall some when they cool.

  8. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting.

  9. To make the sundaes, add a little dab of hot fudge into the bottom of a sundae dish. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a few tablespoons of hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and sprinkles.
