My hubby (who takes forever to fall asleep) googles the most insane and wacky things to keep himself occupied. One such night, he came across a way to make homemade ice-cream without having to buy an ice-cream machine. We decided to give it a go and had some fun creating new flavours.
As we were fiddling with different flavours, I had some leftover brownies I had baked a few days before (and were beginning to go stale) so we decided to mix it through a batch of the ice-cream base as we had some leftover and – voila! – an awesome new ice-cream! (This time, I made the cheats brownies – Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix)
400ml can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (fat-free or regular), cold
2 cups (450ml) whipping cream, cold
Few squares of chocolate brownies
Put sweetened condensed milk in the fridge to cool.
Whip cold heavy cream on medium with your hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
Turn down the speed and pour in the condensed milk with the whipped cream (can add vanilla extract if desired).
Turn up the speed on the hand mixer and whip until thick and stiff peaks re-form. Now you can add your flavours and toppings.
Lightly crumble in a bowl the leftover brownie squares (add as many as you like, taste is dependent on your liking) and mix with 2 cups of ice-cream.
Pour mixture in to a large resealable container and freeze for at least 6 – 12 hours before eating.
