Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this for a dept mtg and all that was left was a few spoonfuls of melted ice cream. Folks scarfed it right up. I do think the time prep should be revised. Can't freeze for 6 hours or overnight twice and only have 6 hours prep time.
I make two batches for a birthday party. It was a great hit.
Make sure brownie is completely cold I frose the brownie before adding next layer. It can be made a couple of days in advance of serving. I lined the pan with foil spray pay first so that it can be removed for easier cutting and serving.
Make sure that it wasn't so prepared ahead of time before the person eats or the ice cream will melt.
Love it kids love it and its easy
