Today I’ve got a special treat! It’s a Brownie Ice Cream Poke Cake with Peanut Butter Whipped Cream Frosting.
Awhile ago I was on Pinterest, and I came across these sweet rolls that were covered in melted ice cream. I thought that sounded really interesting. I love to let my ice cream melt and eat it that way.
How do you make Brownie Ice Cream Poke Cake?
People always love to put a big ol’ scoop of ice cream on a fresh from the oven brownie, and it melts into a puddle of deliciousness. So, I thought a poke cake made with brownies and melted ice cream would be amazing.
First, make a package of brownie mix as directed.
Let it cool completely before poking holes in it with the end of a wooden spoon.
While the brownies are baking, put the ice cream on the stove so it will melt. You want it to be completely liquid.
When the brownie is ready, the ice cream should be completely melted. I used a basic vanilla ice cream, and I poured about 2/3rds of a pint all over an 8 x 8 brownie pan.
One thing I love about Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream is that it has completely basic ingredients – sugar, cream, vanilla. There’s no artificial anything in it.
Once you’ve covered the brownie in melted ice cream, put it in the fridge for a couple of hours so it can really soak into the brownie.
How do you make Peanut Butter Whipped Cream Frosting?
About an hour before you’d like to serve your poke cake, whip up the peanut butter whipped cream.
I used about 1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter to 2 cups of whipping cream.
I also added about a tablespoon of vanilla pudding mix to stabilize the whipped cream. I wanted to stabilize it so it would stay light and fluffy as a frosting, and it wouldn’t just melt into the brownie.
Then, I frosted the top of the brownie with about an inch thickness of the peanut butter whipped cream.
Next, I popped it back in the fridge for about an hour before serving.
