There’s a fine line between me being lazy and me chasing down the ice cream truck for an ice cream sandwich.
That and the fact that my tastes have changed as I have gotten older, inspired me to make these super yummy Mini Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches. The title is a mouthful… but then again, so are the ice cream sandwiches.
These sandwiches take a few steps, but are actually quite easy to make.
First, make things easier by using a brownie mix. I used Betty Crocker Ultimate Fudge Brownie Mix.
Spread out the batter between two 8-x-8-inch pans.
Bake them up and let them cool a bit.
Then spread the peanut butter. Mmmm, peanut butter.
Top with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream. If you can’t find salted caramel ice cream, you can use vanilla ice cream and stir in store-bought salted caramel, which many places now stock.
Top with another brownie piece. Pop into the freezer and try your best to be patient. I’m not very good at that part. Hopefully, you are better.
There are many flavor combinations you can make with these. If you aren’t a peanut butter fan, why not substitute hazelnut chocolate spread and chocolate ice cream instead? Or how about instead of peanut butter, try a little chocolate ganache and mint chocolate chip ice cream? Okay, I need to stop. I am making myself hungry! But as you can see… the possibilities are a plenty!
