Easy Brownie Bowl Sundaes

Check out this brilliant dessert hack to make your own homemade brownie bowls!

You will need:

  • DREYER’S GRAND NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Cookie Dough ice cream or SLOW CHURNED® Cookie Dough light ice cream
  • Brownie batter (made from your favorite recipe)
  • 2 muffin tins
  • Cooking spray
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Sprinkles

Directions

  1. Follow the directions for your favorite brownie recipe to make the batter.
  2. Spray cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray, and add brownie batter to each cup until they’re about two-thirds full.
  3. Spray the second muffin tin with cooking spray and place on top of the first tin of brownies.
  4. Place in the oven and bake, following your brownie recipe’s directions.
  5. After the bowls are completely cool, add a scoop of ice cream, top with chocolate sauce and sprinkles, and enjoy!

How to Use Brownie Bowl Molds

  • Use lighter muffin tins (darker colored muffin tins may create too much heat)
  • Try filling the tins just 1/2 full if your recipe overflows too much
  • You can add the 2nd muffin tin 5-8 minutes before the brownies come out of the oven if your recipe does not respond well (as opposed to cooking with both tins the entire time)
  • Make sure they cool completely before removing from the tins
  • Smashing with the 2nd muffin tin AFTER baking typically just condenses and smashes the brownie cups flat in the tins. If you try this method – be gentle.
  • Still struggling? We found a pan that was built for you! Check out this Wilton Dessert Cup pan! For just around $8 this pan can make all of your brownie dreams come true!😉

Brownie Bowl Pan

Note: If you have a problem with your brownie recipe or your pans and things don’t seem to work, you can always try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls below, but switch out the dough with this “brownie like” Double Chocolate Cookies recipe. They work like a charm!

​Variation: Gluten Free Brownie Bowls

Just grab your favorite gluten free brownie mix. Our favorite:

Note: 

If someone is extremely sensitive to gluten you will want to make sure to use different bakeware so that it is not cross contaminated (a dish that has all ready been used for foods that contain gluten). Gluten sensitivity can be different for each person. If you are having a guest that you know is gluten free, don't be afraid to ask about food preparation. 

Always be sure to read the ingredients list on your ice cream to check for gluten.  You'll be surprised at how many do!
