Peppermint Ice Cream Brownie Bites

Peppermint Ice Cream Brownie Bites

Sharing is caring!

I am really excited to share this next holiday treat with you!   I am convinced that my kids will choose brownies with ice cream over any other kind of dessert there is.  I decided to put the two together into a little bite sized treat and they turned out heavenly!!!    I made these with a peppermint ice cream for the holidays, but you can substitute with whatever ice cream that you like.   These are sure to please!

They are so easy to make.  Bake the brownie part in mini cupcake liners placed in mini muffin tin.  I only filled them up 1/3 of the way full.

 Once everything was cooled I put peppermint ice cream (vanilla ice cream + crushed peppermint bark) on top of the brownie inside the liners.  I then let them freeze overnight, but they will be ready as soon as 2 hours.  Unwrap them yourself, or serve them in the liners.  When ready to eat just serve them as is or top them with whipped cream/ icing.   I added a little (or a lot) chocolate drizzle too… so good!

 These really had that “wow” factor!

 The only problem is how quickly they disappear!   😉

{Peppermint} Ice Cream Brownie Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 dark chocolate brownie mix with ingredients from the box
  • 24 mini cupcake liners
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • 2/3 cup peppermint bark like andes peppermint crunch baking bits
  • optional whipped cream or peppermint icing
  • optional chocolate drizzle
  • optional add ins for the brownies like chocolate chips or extra cocoa powder.
  • optional crushed peppermints for garnish

Instructions

  • Prepare brownie mix as the directions call for on the box. Place brownie mixture into the mini cupcake liners about 1/3 of the way full and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Let cool. meanwhile mix the vanilla ice cream and peppermint bark in a bowl and place in freezer until ready to use. Once the brownies have cooled off fill the rest of the liners with the ice cream until it reaches the top. Place brownie bites in freezer (still inside mini muffin tin) for at least 2 hours to ensure that everything is frozen well. To serve either serve as is or take the liners off. I drizzled mine with melted chocolate and piped a little peppermint icing on top of each one. Then I used the crushed peppermints as garnish. Eat immediately since the ice cream will melt. Enjoy! (you will have leftover brownie mix if only making 24 cupcakes... I just made regular brownies with this in a smaller pan!)

These are absolutely gorgeous! My kids love brownies and ice cream too! I love making peppermint ice cream this time of year. How perfect would it be to use it in the recipe?
