These bars. They’re the reason, well one of the reasons, I haven’t lost any weight for our Vegas trip this weekend. lol One of the downfalls of being a food blogger. Scheduling to make luscious ice cream brownie bars when you’re supposed to be dieting. What the heck was I thinking!? Ugh. :/
That being said, they are divine! Cookie dough ice cream over brownies, drizzled with caramel and chocolate sauce. I topped ours off with a scoop of egg-free cookie dough. SO yum! (the recipe for the cookie dough is at the bottom!) 🙂 They are simple to prepare, just take a little time. But they’re worth it! These would be a great treat to make for Summer barbecues and potlucks we’ll all be having soon! Yay for Summer 🙂
Cookie Dough Ice Cream Brownie Bars

- eggs oil and water (amounts needed from package)

- Prepare and bake brownies according to package directions, using an 8×8 pan for thicker brownies, or 9×13 pan for thinner. Cool brownies completely.
- Set ice cream out on a countertop for 30 minutes to soften. (You want it soft enough to spread over brownies but still slightly frozen)
- Once ice cream is softened, spread it evenly over the top of the brownies. Cover tightly with saran wrap and foil. Place in freezer and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- Slice ice cream brownie bars into squares, using a sharp knife that’s been run under hot water. Serve each slice with drizzles of caramel and chocolate sauce. Top each with pieces of cookie dough.
