Giant Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe
You will need:
- 2 (8-inch) square baking pans
- Aluminum foil
- Basking sheet or freezer-proof serving platter
- 1 (19 to 22 oz.) pkg. brownie mix
- Eggs, oil, and water as directed on package
- 1 C. chopped Milky Way candy bars
- 1 qt. vanilla ice cream
- 1 1/2 C. whipped topping
- 1 C. candy coated chocolate candies (M&M’s)
Line two 8-inch square baking pans (Rada Cutlery Stoneware used below) with aluminium foil, shiny side up. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
Chop 3 frozen Milky Way bars. This should make approximately 1 cup of Milky Way pieces.
Prepare brownie mix according to directions on package. This should include eggs, oil, and water, as well as the mix itself. Once brownie mix has been stirred, add Milky Way pieces to mixture. Stir.
Distribute mixture evenly across prepared 8-inch pans. Be sure to push batter into corners. Place in oven preheated to 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Once brownies bake, allow to cool, then place in freezer for 1 hour. Remove from freezer and then remove aluminum foil.
Remove 1 quart vanilla ice cream from freezer (if you like, you could soften the ice cream beforehand in a refrigerator). Completely remove ice cream from box and cut ice cream into several blocks that will cover an entire block of brownie. The Rada Ham Slicer is perfect for this. Once brownie block is covered, place the other brownie block on top of the ice cream. Smooth out edges of ice cream as necessary.
Cover top brownie block with whipped topping. We choose to cover the edges and place a dollop of topping in the middle, but you can do as you prefer.
Place M&M’s on whipped topping.
Serve and enjoy! If preferred, you can make this without the Milky Way bars, or use another candy altogether!
Not Just For Ham!
The Rada Ham Slicer is a versatile tool that you’ll use for more than just cutting ham. Its 9 ½-inch blade is the longest we produce at Rada, meaning this is ideal for slicing through bigger foods. You’ll find yourself using it on cakes, jerky meat, melons, prime rib, or even for cutting a block of ice cream for the above recipe. It’s made in the USA, and comes with a Lifetime Guarantee!

Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, and today I want to show you how to make a giant ice cream sandwich. It would be a perfect cake for a birthday party, and it just takes prepared brownie mix, and I want to show you how to prepare the pans.
So you’ll need 2 8 x 8 inch pans. I’m going to use the Rada Stoneware. But we’re going to take that brownie out so we’re going to line it with tinfoil. So you just cut a piece of tinfoil to the size of the pan. You just push it around the edges, so it’s pretty smooth. I am doing the shiny side up. The shiny side reflects the heat, so if you put in on the bottom it’s going to force the heat away, so you want to make sure the heat comes into your brownie mix. Now just coat that with cooking spray. So you can set those aside.
Then I have family size fudge brownie mix. Just bought it at the store in the box. To that I’m going to add three Milky Way candy bars, or about a cup of candy pieces. We’re just going to chop those up. I put these in the freezer, so they’re easier to chop, and this Rada French Chef’s knife chops right through those. This is going to add a caramel taste to these brownies.
Now this is just a box of brownie mix. You need a 19-22 oz. size. You’re just going to compare it to the instructions on the box. Then add a fourth cup of water, two eggs, half cup oil, and then just stir for 50 strokes.
So once we’ve stirred our brownie mix, we’re going to add our chopped Milky Way candy bars. You’ll want to have your oven preheated to 350 degrees. And now, we’re going to evenly pour that batter into our prepared 8 x 8 inch pans. Make sure you push it into the corners. Then we’re going to put this in that 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes.
So our brownies got baked. I let them cool and had them in the freezer for an hour. And now, I’m going to put that on a serving plate. That’s why you want to grease your tinfoil really well, so it doesn’t stick to that. Here I have a quart of vanilla ice cream. It’s best if you get it in a box like this. I softened it a little bit in the refrigerator. I’m just going to take it out of that container and take this ham knife and make slices of ice cream and lay that on top of that brownie. We can level off the edges.
And now we’ll take our other brownie and place it on the ice cream. You can level off the sides with a knife. Then you’ll want to put this back in the freezer until it’s ready to serve. I like to take a little whipped topping and spread it over it. If you do put it in the freezer, you’ll want to get it out 15 minutes before you serve it, so the ice cream has time to soften. And that’s the giant ice cream sandwich cake. Enjoy!
