Ice Cream Sundae

I mixed up my favorite brownies. I like to use dark cocoa but it's not necessary.

The wax paper was a total fail. Do NOT use wax paper. 
Thank you.

After peeling off the wax paper I dug through my tupperware drawer looking for something small and round to cut out the brownies. A salt and pepper shaker was perfect!

I soon left Mia take over the cutting out job.

And of course the next steps involve scooping ice cream and cooled off hot fudge. 
I added some cookie crumbs on top of the hot fudge layer. Yum. 
The ice cream was melting pretty fast so I forgot to take pictures. It would be better to assemble 12 at a time instead of 36. 
Olive was a big help by being sweet. 

Nate was helping too. We need snow removal.

Here we go!

Don't forget the layer of cool whip.

We were the last stop for a progressive supper with our Youth Group.

 Best Basic Brownie
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 cups White Sugar
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ⅔ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan.
Melt butter. Remove from heat and add ingredients in the order listed, stirring well by hand.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake.
Cut with a plastic knife (best brownie trick).
It’d also be great to make these using black cocoa.

Hot Fudge Recipe
from Mary Kay Fox
And Ginger Fox who introduced it to me.

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup butter

Cook for 8 minutes stirring constantly, remove from heat and stir in:
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Cool before pouring over ice cream, unless you are going to eat it right away.
