Chewy Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Planning a summer party for both kids and adults? This sweet dessert is the perfect crowd-pleaser. It combines the deliciousness of chewy, fudgy homemade brownies with the cool delight of gelato.


You can coat the edges of your ice-cream masterpieces with shredded coconut, chopped nuts or even sprinkles for a little fun. Enjoy!



  • Cooking spray
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut in pieces
  • 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 pints coconut or vanilla gelato, softened
  • Shredded coconut, chopped nuts or sprinkles for coating (optional)



Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease an 18- by 13-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Line the sheet with parchment paper, leaving a 3-inch overhang on the two long sides.


Whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.


Microwave butter and chocolate in 30-second increments, stirring in between until fully melted. Whisk in sugar. Whisk in eggs until just combined (do not over blend). Fold in flour mixture until just combined.


Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 9 to 11 minutes.


Allow cooling fully in the pan. While still in the pan, slice the entire brownie in half lengthwise. Place the pan in the freezer and freeze until firm, at least 30 minutes.


Remove from the freezer. Lift out one brownie half and set aside. Flip over the second brownie half and place back on the pan.


Scoop softened gelato onto the inverted brownie, and top it with the remaining brownie half, top side up, to create a sandwich. Gently press together. Freeze in a pan until firm, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.


Remove brownie from the freezer and cut evenly into 12 sandwiches. Coat edges with shredded coconut, nuts or sprinkles if desired.
