Recipe Notes

  • Vegan or dairy-free: Use vegan ice cream and vegan hot fudge.
  • Make ahead of time: Let ice cream soften slightly then scoop out ice cream with a scoop that has a release. Release scoops onto parchment-lined baking sheet or place and place in freezer until ready to serve. 
  • Additional ideas: Place brownie at bottom of bowl or glass and/or add splash of coffee liqueur to hot fudge after warming.
