We love to do something a little special and a little fun for birthdays at our house. We had this dirt ice cream brownie instead of Birthday Cake and I wish I would have caught P’s little face when we revealed it to her. Absolutely priceless. She was shocked that there were worms in her cake. She thought it was pretty funny. I’ll have to remember to grab my camera next time.

Since we don’t eat a lot of cake we decided to do a brownie bottom and then ice cream and fudge layers. We liked it a lot better than just using a chocolate cake. But I suppose if you absolutely have to have cake, you probably could and it probably would still be delicious. We also used our favorite kinds of ice cream for this but feel free to experiment and use your favorite flavors too! It might be fun to try something with chocolate chunks or peanut butter cups in it. Maybe even something with swirls or chocolate or caramel. Doesn’t that sound yummy? The possibilities are virtually endless! Here is how I did it…

Can Ice Cream Be Made With Milk?

You can make ice cream with milk, for a lighter, lower fat frozen dessert.

How Long Will Ice Cream Keep?

Ice cream can be kept for 2-3 months in a freezer.

How Long Can You Freeze Brownies?

Brownies that are wrapped well in plastic wrap or foil will keep up to 3 months in the freezer.
