Barefoot Brownie Sundaes

This month’s second recipe selection for Barefoot Bloggers was chosen by Eva of I’m Boring, who decided on Outrageous Brownies. I’ve made Ina’s Outrageous Brownies many times before—they are my favorite brownies and always a big hit! So for this Barefoot Bloggers posting, I decided to take it a step further and make brownie sundaes.

I started by making the
Outrageous Brownies. Then I made home-made vanilla ice cream, using my new ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer. Finally, I made the chocolate sauce and assembled the sundaes.

Brownie Sundaes, Barefoot Contessa

¾ cups heavy cream
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 ½ teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder
6 brownies
1 quart vanilla ice cream

Melt the heavy cream, chocolate chips, and instant coffee in a bowl over simmering water until smooth, stirring occasionally. Place a brownie on each plate, top with a scoop of ice cream, and serve with warm chocolate sauce.
