The Reese's Ice Cream Cake. Brownie. Better than cake and better than ice cream.

Occasionally, this sinfully sweet, rich, soft, chewy, flavorful and chocolaty cake arrives on our birthdays.  Your favorite bite will be a cool slide of the cake from your fork, into your mouth, crunch through the magic shell chocolate, bite down into the cold ice cream with reese's candy and brownie to sandwich it with.  Keep biting, getting cold and then the flavors mix and you are ready for your next bite.  

My mom used to buy my dad an ice cream cake back when Baskin Robbins first offered them - I think it was the 90s lol.  Eventually, she got sick of paying for them and decided to come up with her own way of making one.

Her original recipe includes: Chocolate Ice Cream with peanut butter mixed into it by hand.  (you will see the technique of the consistency that you would do this - in a later step)  once she had her peanut butter chocolate ice cream, she'd put it over her sheet brownie and decorate after it was set.

My take:  I can't stand that much chocolate!! hahaha. Well...maybe I just don't like chocolate ice cream.  Anyways, I make mine with vanilla and I put all that chocolate on top...for contrast, of course.  ;)

My cousin - Lynne - suggested that you could even take this a step further and make them into cupcakes by baking the brownies in.. silicone cups, maybe, and layering from there.  Once done - you can eat out of the cup or peel it off.  :)  Then it would be Ice Cream Cupcakes!

Taster-Beware!  This sh*t is bananas. 

Step 1: Whatcha Need

Reese's.  You can choose whichever variety you'd like. I used minis and my mom chops the regular cups up.

Ice cream, your choice - chocolate or vanilla are classic and meld well with the other flavors.

Brownie.  While my mom always baked hers, and I bake mine, she's got moola and she bought a sheet brownie at the store last time she made one.  (I used dollar store boxes haha.)

Magic shell (chocolate topping that hardens when it gets cold)

Fudge topping or hershey's chocolate topping.

Caramel or Butterscotch?  - I think that's the one my mom uses but I like caramel!

(stuff for preparations - bowls/pans/etc.) Maybe even a spring form pan for easy release.  :)
