My sister's favorite dessert is the brownie sundae. She's had countless brownie sundaes in her life, but for a recent party in her honor, I decided to put together the best brownie sundae ever. What makes this brownie sundae so spectacular is the double dose of mint and chocolate. There's mint chip ice cream, and the brownies are made with mint dark chocolate. I wanted to top the whole thing with a decadent fudge sauce, but ran out of time. Thus, the sundae is quite simple with just brownie, ice cream, and whipped cream.
The simplicity adds to its scrumptiousness, and each bite is perfectly balanced. It's creamy, cool, chocolaty, and minty all at the same time. While you could easily do this sundae with store-bought ingredients, it's wildly rewarding to take the time to make the components from scratch. Between bites, my guests could not stop raving about how good this sundae was. My sister declared it, "one of the top 10 desserts" I've ever made! If you are looking for an impressive finish, I highly recommend the recipe. Get it, after the break.
- With the whisk attachment on a standing mixer, beat the cream. While whisking, add the sugar and vanilla. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Working quickly, place a brownie square on a plate. Top with several scoops of ice cream and a generous dollop of whipped cream.
- Enjoy immediately!
