How To Make Classic Ice Cream Sandwiches
Enjoy a classic dessert with these ice cream sandwiches that are made with your fave ice cream flavor in between layers of fudgy homemade brownies.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter the bottom of a 15×11-inch jelly roll pan, then line it with parchment, leaving enough to hang over the sides. The butter will help the parchment stick to the pan when spreading the batter.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan set over low heat, slowly melt the butter, chocolate, vanilla, and salt together, stirring constantly. Once melted, remove from heat.
Stir the brown and white sugar into the chocolate mixture. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring until well combined. Fold in the flour mixture.
Using an offset spatula or standard spatula, spread the batter into a thin, even layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. When finished, the brownie should have puffed up just a little and the top should look dry.
Let cool completely. Once cool, use the parchment sides to lift the brownie slab out of the pan. Transfer to a large cutting board.
Cut the brownie in half down the middle from north to south. Use an offset spatula or knife and run it between brownie slabs and the parchment.
Put one brownie on top of the next just to make sure the top is the same size as the bottom. Trim about ¼ of an inch off each side to have smooth even edges.
This will make one large ice cream sandwich, wrap it, freeze it, and then cut into individual ice cream sandwiches a little later.
Place a piece of plastic wrap over the baking sheet. Leave enough hanging over the edges to wrap the entire brownie once finished assembling the ice cream sandwich.
Place one of the brownie slabs on the plastic wrap.
Remove the ice cream from the fridge and place it in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
Beat it on low to medium-low just until it reaches the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. This should only take 1 to 2 minutes.
To Assemble Sandwiches:
Spread the softened ice cream in an even layer over the brownie slab on the plastic-wrap-lined baking sheet.
Top with remaining brownie slab. Wrap in the plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 2 hours.
Remove the ice cream sandwich from the freezer. Place on cutting board.
Use a sharp knife to cut into 6 rectangle-shaped or 12 square-shaped ice cream sandwiches. Re-wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.
