Now that the weather is feeling more like summer, I love nothing more than treating my family to a delicious ice cream dessert!  You can make ice cream desserts in so many different and delicious ways, however, I’ve been craving chocolate and strawberries.  When you combine vanilla ice cream with those chocolate and strawberries, you get a slice of heaven right here on earth!

Knowing that the weather was going to be pretty hot this week, my little guy and I decided to make a trip to Walmart to stock up on all the warm-weather essentials.  For us, this means Ice Cream!  Our first stop was the frozen food section at Walmart, where Blue Bunny had a samples of their delicious Vanilla Ice Cream and fresh berries.  Walmart will hold another demo event June 4-7th, 2015 featuring Blue Bunny Premium Vanilla sandwiches and Wet Ones.  Be sure to check it out at your local Walmart!

As you can see below, Walmart has a fantastic selection of Blue Bunny Ice Cream.  I picked up the their Homemade Vanilla to go with the fresh strawberries.  (Those samples where soooo good!)  I was also able to grab a brownie mix, and hot fudge sauce – everything I needed to make my ice cream dessert was right there at Walmart!

Once we got home, Harrison and I got to work making our dessert.  The first thing we did was make our brownie base, which we put in a spring-form pan.  This worked well, making it easy to slice when the dessert was ready to serve.  Once the brownie was done, we let it cool completely.

To our cooled brownie, we then added the ice cream mixture to the top.  We might have helped ourselves to a bite of that ice cream. 😉  Smooth out the ice cream evenly and top with a sheet of plastic wrap.  Place the dessert into the freezer to firm up for at least 1 hour or more.

Top your dessert with chocolate dipped strawberries, which makes for a really pretty garnish to an already lovely dessert.  When you’re ready to serve the dessert, let it to soften at room temperature for a few minutes.  This helps make slicing the dessert a bit easier.

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.9 oz) brownie mix, or any other 8x8 brownie mix
  • 1 (1.75 qt.) container Blue Bunny Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 (16 oz.) container, fresh strawberries
  • 2/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • hot fudge sauce for topping (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions. In a 9" round spring form pan, bake the brownie to package directions. (I baked mine for about 32 minutes for the 9" round pan.) When baking is complete, let the brownie cool completely.
  2. Remove ice cream from freezer and let soften at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse and slice about 2 cups of the strawberries, reserving about 8 of the berries to be dipped in chocolate. Add the entire container of softened ice cream to a mixing bowl. Stir in the sliced strawberries. Add the ice cream mixture to the top of the brownie, and smooth out evenly. Add a piece of plastic wrap, and refreeze for at least one hour.
  3. When ready to serve the dessert, remove from freezer and let soften for a few minutes at room temperature. Remove the outer side of the spring form pan. Slice, and drizzle with warm hot fudge sauce. Refreeze any leftovers.
