  • PREP

  • COOK

    35 mins

    2 hrs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 9-inch cake pans.
  2. Combine the brownie mix, vegetable oil, water, and eggs in a mixing bowl; stir well with a spoon until thickened and smooth, about 1 minute. Spread the batter into the prepared cake pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set and browned, about 30 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of a pan should come out with moist crumbs. Let cool for 10 minutes in pans before removing to finish cooling on racks.
  4. After brownies are cool, remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pour sweetened condensed milk into a saucepan, and mix in the chocolate chips; heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until chips have melted and the sauce is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to barely warm temperature.
  5. Place one of the layers of brownies into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Evenly spread the ice cream in a layer over the brownies; pour and spread half the chocolate sauce over the ice cream. Top with the other brownie layer, and drizzle the remaining sauce over the top. Freeze until ready to eat, at least 1 hour. Serve topped with whipped topping, if desired.

I made this as a birthday cake for my daughter! It was such a hit!!!! and very very delicious!!!!! I made a few changes, but that shouldnt change the overall outcome of the recipe - I used cookies n cream flavor ice cream. I made the brownie mix according to the low fat version. I lined the spring form pan with oreo cookies. I will make this recipe again!!!

I just followed the instructions on my brownie mix which saved me from adding an extra 1/4 cup of oil and an extra egg. I used vanilla ice cream softened with some milk. I was a little disappointed with the overall taste, I didn't care for the texture of the frozen brownies and the homemade chocolate sauce was messy to work with.

I used bunny tracks ice cream instead. Turned out great as a summer treat!

I switched out the mint ice cream for one with carmel swirled into it. It was an instant hit. You can have it ready to serve in 3-4 hours but it sets up much nicer, serves easier and looks prettier if it can freeze for an entire day or even overnight.

I made this, but added my own twists to it...I used a really good vanilla bean ice cream, and made my own recipe for chocolate ganache that I poured over the top before freezing...DELICIOUS!!!

I used black raspberry ice cream instead. It was good but it was messy trying to cut it. Family liked it.

Baked this for my grandson's birthday, making 7 layers. It was good but I won't make this cake again. I used 2 brownie mixes so I could have 4 brownie layers, and I used chocolate chip ice cream because he doesn't like mint. Those were the only changes to the original recipe. It was not a pretty cake, but we decorated the top with candles. I had a very hard time getting the brownie layers out of the cake pans, even though I sprayed the pans with PAM. The ice cream dripped out between the layers, and the chocolate sauce was so runny that most of it ran down onto the cake plate. I had chocolate all over my kitchen, my apron, the cake, plate, etc.
