As with a lot of my recipes you can either make all of this from scratch including the brownies and ice cream or if you are short on time you can use this recipe as inspiration for combining your favourite shop bought freeform brownies and ice cream.

If you are making everything using this recipe it will be enough to make about 12 desserts or you can just enjoy the brownies as a cake and keep the ice-cream in the freezer for another day.




For the brownies:

  • 115g dairy free chocolate chips
  • 115g dairy free spread
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  • 140g gluten free plain flour

For the ice cream:

  • 5 egg yolks
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 500ml dairy free milk
  • 250ml dairy free cream
  • vanilla extract or vanilla pod

For serving:

  • A drizzle of dairy free chocolate sauce, I used Choc Shot
  • Handful of cherries



To make the brownies:

  • Line a 13 by 9 inch shallow baking tin with tinfoil leaving the edges over the tin so the brownie can be easily lifted out the pan
  • Preheat the oven to 180 oC
  • In a small pan or in the microwave, melt together the chocolate and the dairy free spread
  • Leave aside to cool
  • Beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract
  • Stir the chocolate mixture, flour and xanthan gum
  • Pour into the pan and bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes
  • Leave in the pan to cool
  • Carefully lift out the pan and slice into squares

To make the ice-cream:

  • Whip the egg yolks, vanilla and sugar together until thick and creamy
  • Place the milk and cream into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil
  • Add the milk to the eggs and sugar while stirring continuously
  • Return to the pan and cook over a low heat until thickened
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool
  • Chill in the fridge
  • Churn in an ice-cream maker for 20 minutes or place in the freezer for four hours

To assemble:

  • Slice each brownie into small cubes
  • Layer up ice-cream, cherries and cubes of brownie
  • Top with a cherry and a drizzle of chocolate sauce
