Coffee Brownie Crackle Swirl Ice Cream

Screenshot 2015-08-04 09.44.38With Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup for sale this week, we couldn’t resist this Lisi’s Luscious Dessert’s recipe. You can really be creative at home with this easy to make ice cream with store bought ice cream with mix ins. Use your mixer to help you incorporate the extras. Not too much coffee flavor since you swirl in the vanilla flavor too – and the addition of left over brownie edges and drizzled milk chocolate crackle was just delightful. Add a few caramelized bananas and some freshly whipped cream and this would be heaven in a bowl.
Coffee Brownie Crackle Swirl Ice Cream
one pint vanilla ice cream
one pint coffee ice cream
brownie bits (homemade is preferable)
1 cup chopped milk chocolate, melted – more or less depending on your taste.
Other ideas include: Oreos, reverse Oreos, mint cookies, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chips, graham cracker chunks, grape nuts, raisins, Reeses, m&m’s…Just have fun.
Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl placed over an inch of simmering water.  Melt and let cool a bit.
Soften ice cream – leave out at room temp or the fridge for a bit.  Place ice cream in mixer with paddle attachment.  On the lowest speed, soften the ice cream even further.  Add the brownie bits or whatever you are mixing in and gently incorporate.
Remove from mixer.  As you scoop ice cream into the container, drizzle the melted chocolate on top.  Layer by layer add more drizzles and at the end fold a bit to incorporate all the chocolate.
