Ben and Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie ice cream is one of my favorite ice creams. This is my homemade version of this wonderful chocolate ice cream.

Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Sometimes you don’t feel like leaving the house to get your favorite pint of ice cream. This idea came after I went to the store and brought a whole bunch of groceries, only to forget the main reason I went to the store.

To get ice cream!

I made some absolutely delicious homemade brownies the day before. I was supposed to go there only for ice cream to make this an enjoyable evening. My favorite thing is to take a warm brownie and mix it with vanilla ice cream. But I blew the mission.

I checked my cabinet and found out I had everything at home to make homemade ice cream, and that’s exactly how this recipe came to be. The best part is you don’t have to use an ice cream maker, but if you have one, put the ice block in the freezer and get ready for some delicious ice cream with chunks of brownies.

Key Ingredients

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this ice cream recipe at home.

Unsweetened Chocolate

I love using melted chocolate for my brownies because of the deep chocolate flavor.

Unsalted Butter

I always use unsalted butter in my brownies.

Eggs

We’ll need 3 large eggs.

Sugar

Use your favorite granulated sugar.

Flour

I only use unbleached all-purpose flour for baking.

Baking Powder

This will give our brownies the perfect lift.

Nuts

As a Southern boy, my favorite nut to put in brownies is pecans.

Heavy Cream

Heavy whipping cream is the based for our ice cream.

Sweetened Condensed Milk

Using sweetened condensed milk eliminates the need to make a traditional custard for the ice cream.

How to make Fudge Brownie Ice Cream recipe?

This recipe will produce a creamy chocolatey ice cream that you can use for your favorite brownie recipe with one of my many brownie recipes. You’ll want to make the brownies one day in advance.

Fudgy Brownies:

Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave until both are melted.

Mix eggs and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the melted chocolate and vanilla, and mix until smooth.

Blend the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Stir into chocolate and mix on low speed until the flour is incorporated, then stir in the pecans.

Pour in the batter in a greased 8 x 8 baking pan and bake brownies in a 325°F oven for 35-40 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean. Cool for 1 hour before cutting.

Ice Cream:

Whip heavy cream, kosher salt, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer until thick and fluffy, about 1 ½ – 2 minutes. Fold in condensed milk, and be careful not to take all the air out of the stiff peaks.

Transfer to a dish, fold in 4-6 crumbled brownie pieces, cover, and pop in the freezer overnight. Enjoy the next day with some extra brownie pieces.

You can make the ice cream on the same day and combine the two in a bowl before enjoying it.
