Brownie Batter Ice Cream

Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts. I can eat it no matter what the weather is. Homemade ice cream is especially delicious. When I shared the grape ice cream I promised more flavors and I bring you brownie batter ice cream.

This brownie batter ice cream is no cook and no ice cream maker needed. Sure to please all the chocolate lovers in your life

This five ingredient ice cream is adapted from the easy cake batter ice cream at Mom Advice. It’s a no cook recipe which is great because you don’t have to wait for a custard to chill or worry about accidentally making flavored scrambled eggs .

If you don’t have an ice cream maker never fear. This recipe can easily be made without one. Which is a good thing because mine quit working.  It takes a bit more work than just mixing the ingredients together and adding them to the maker but it isn’t difficult at all.

This tasted kind of like chocolate snow cream to me and would be great topped with your favorite sundae toppings or, my favorite way, in a waffle cone.
