London is sweltering at the moment, with temperatures in the region of 29C – what’s a girl to do? Make (and eat) Triple Chocolate Mint Brownie Ice Cream of course!
This ice cream is decadent, creamy, richly flavoured with minted chocolate, loaded with tiny chunks of milk chocolate mint crisp with nuggets of Chocolate Mint Aero Brownie and Mint Aero. Oh yes!!!! Double scoop please!
Incredibly quick and easy to prepare, (if you have made the brownies you need in advance), this ice cream will take roughly 10 minutes to whip up; the only downside is waiting a few hours for it to freeze! But it really is worth the wait. This recipe is adapted from my No Churn Ice Cream – Core Recipe. For other easy ice cream ideas, take a look.
Whilst I do own an ice cream maker, my daughters are always after recipes which do not require a host of specialist equipment and can be whipped (literally) up in minutes. Enter no churn ice cream. The majority of these recipes are very quick to make although some, like this one and the strawberry ice cream, take a little longer, as additional ingredients are added which need to be prepared beforehand.
Charlotte’s boyfriend, Harry, provided the inspiration for this recipe. He is a massive chocolate mint fan and asked if I had a recipe for a Chocolate Mint Brownie Ice cream – I didn’t, although I did have a recipe for Double Chocolate Ice Cream and another one for Chocolate Mint AeroBrownies. I simply put them together, with some added mint and, hey presto, this recipe was born. I am pleased to say that both Charlotte and Harry absolutely loved it!
Even I love it! Whenever I visit an ice cream shop, I make a little pact with myself that I will try something other than chocolate – it never works. I see chocolate ice cream and I’m in there – if I’m going for a double scoop, the flavour I am most likely to add is mint chocolate chip. This recipe works for me on every level. I am very, very fussy and trust me, this recipe is amazing! Thank you Harry for the inspiration.
