Jesus' Brownie/Ice Cream Birthday Cake

  It's time for a Birthday Cake for Jesus. It needs to be our best and it needs to be special. We've done various things over the years (search if you'd like to see). Our Birthday family favorite cake is....Mike's Famous Ice Cream Cake. The younger two Gherkins want to decorate the top.....we thought of making a traditional cake...but Mike came up with this idea; which we executed together.

Bake your favorite brownies in a spring form pan. I like these (minus the peanut butter/honey) or Moosewood Brownies.  In any event

Preheat oven to 325*.

Mix up a batch of brownies. If using a prepared box mix get the 8x8 one.....eyeball it if using from scratch brownies (really depends on how much brownie YOU want).  If you have extra brownie mix make some Brownie Bites or a few Brownie Bombs.

Pour into a spring form pan - choose your size. I used 10 in and am baking 35* and checking.

Cool Brownie.

Top with 1/2 gal of favorite ice cream.

Scatter a lay of mix ins: hot fudge, hard shell, crumbled cookies, candy bits.

Top with another 1/2 gal of ice cream.
Personally, I would have added many more goodies between the layers of ice cream but this was RICH as was! 

Top with hard shell etc.....we let the kids decorate this as it's for Jesus' Birthday.

Freeze - overnight is best. We just did it for the day and it was fine.  It was YUMMY!

Remove from freezer 5 min before serving (unless, of course, you made this together Christmas a.m. to eat Christmas night).

Choosing Joy!

It IS really wonderful ladies....and the brownie wasn't too hard to cut through. I was worried about that. I had thought to put brownie pieces or cookies between the layers but this was rich enough.
