Welcome to Blast From The Past Saturday. Every Saturday I will be posting a previously published post, in order to take my weekends off.

This is a one of my favorite easy deserts. I think this is the winner for Mother's Day. You see I like to cook, and desserts are my favorite thing to make. Especially easy deserts. I am doing some of the cooking for Mother's Day, just because it ensures that I get something that I really love to eat for dessert. Now this recipe makes a lot, so I am going to cut it in half for my family since there are only 4 of us this year, but the full recipe is what follows. I can't wait for next year, when I have all my children home.
Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches
2 boxes brownie mix ( Follow the directions on the boxes to make the brownies. Make them in 2 9 X 13 inch pans and line the pans with waxed paper and spray with Pam)
2 pints Ice Cream ( Your choice of flavors, I use 2 flavors normally)
Make the brownies and let cool. I have actually put the brownies in the freezer to harden, until I am ready to spread the ice cream between the layers.
Set your ice cream out to soften. I used Hagen Daz Carmel Cone Crunch. Spread the ice creams on the top of one tray of brownies. The layer of ice cream should be about 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch thick.
Then turn the other pan of brownies on top of the ice creams. Lightly press down on the top layer of brownies to make the sandwiches hold together, remove the wax paper from the brownies on top.
Put brownies in the freezer to harden the brownies and ice cream. Once the ice cream is hard again, several hours, pull the brownies out of the freezer and cut. You do not want it all totally frozen, or it will be very difficult to cut. You should have between 12 and 18 pieces depending on how large or small you want them to be.
Put them back in the freezer to refreeze.
Serve with hot fudge sauce and whipped cream. I would love to hear about your favorite desserts.
