I mean, this weekend calls for a bit of a celebration don’t you think. Slutty Brownie Ice Cream Cake is the kind of celebration I want to have. This week has been crazzzzzy. And I’ve been getting way less sleep than usual. I’m an 8-9 hours of sleep kinda gal. What about you guys?
I’ve been like that for years. Should I only get a few hours of sleep I am a complete disaster. Like literally, I can’t even function. This week, I put my sunglasses in the refrigerator. Like, really? I’m clearly losing it. And then I searched for them for literally 20 minutes and finally decided that I must have left them in my car but was too lazy to go get them. A few hours later when I went to grab a hunk of havarti cheese (it was the right thing to eat at the time) I found them next to the OJ. Someone send help.
But I’ve been knee deep in avocados all week long and I loved every last second. If you haven’t already picked up a copy of Absolutely Avocados, nows the time! Especially because Cinco de Mayo is next weekend!! And you know there is some serious avocado eating in your future.
So anyways, after this crazy exciting and fun week, I’m ready to celebrate with some friends and eat some sugary decadent dessert. Slutty Brownie Ice Cream Cake. Yup. That’s the name of the game this weekend. Some seriously sinful slutty brownies topped with a few layers of ice cream and drizzled with ganache. It’s happening. Just accept it. And the deliciousness that comes with it.
Full disclosure… don’t try and eat 1/3 of this cake by yourself. Trust me, it doesn’t end well. This Slutty Brownie Ice Cream Cake is best served with about 8-9 friends.
So let’s do a little throw back to last year when we first started the slutty brownie obsession and step things up about 100 notches and make something crazy this weekend. Also, now that summer is almost here, let’s embrace the ice cream cakes and start rocking them more frequently.
And here’s a little tip. I just barely melted the 2 kinds of ice cream I used in the microwave and then poured it on top on the slutty brownies while it was still in the spring form pan. Then I froze it for a few hours and repeated the process with another kind of ice cream. It made life so easy – and it gave me perfectly straight layers of ice cream. For the type A personality in me, these kinds of things make me seriously happy.
Wham. Bam. Thank you ma’am. Slutty Brownie Ice Cream Cake is born.
After this is frozen for the final time, it's a bit tough to cut. I like to run my knife under warm water for a few seconds to make the cutting process even easier. And I also take it out from the freezer are 10-15 minutes before cutting into it, just so it has a little bit to warm up.
