Red Velvet Brownie Ice Cream Cake Recipe the perfect slice and serve frozen treat


Sometimes don’t you just want to eat ALL THE ICE CREAM? I am not normally and ice cream person. When I was pregnant with both of my boys I craved popsicles, slushies, and smoothies. The saddest part of it all was that I had a built-in, living excuse to eat all the ice cream I wanted and there are 2 creameries within a few minutes walk From my house. But I was young and stupid so I passed up the ice cream cones for popsicles and the milkshakes for all fruit smoothies.

I mean- who doesn’t eat ice cream when they are pregnant?


Well, we’ve fixed that. Only I’m not pregnant, but I still can walk down my street and have my choice of 2 local creameries within 5 minutes of deciding if I want a double or triple scoop.

Also, I’m all about the brownies and milk these days. Do you guys love a big glass of icy cold milk with your brownies? And since these brownies were frozen it just made the cold milk even more refreshing. It was like eating a giant Oreo straight from the freezer.

    Yes, I want to eat all the ice cream. I’m a huge fan of ice cream, especially when it’s so dang hot and humid outside. This looks wonderful!
