HAPPY (belated!) BIRTHDAY, LADY A!

We celebrated your second birthday this past weekend with family and friends, and you are just a joy. I am so lucky to be your mama.

So today, in celebration of YOU, I made you something sweet. Since, you know, I made myself a boozy float last week on your actual birthday and didn’t share.

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day, a birthday or any regular day, No Churn Guinness Brownie Ice Cream is creamy, rich and decadent!

Instead of making you a healthy ice cream that I can’t enjoy, I decided to go with a twist on one of my childhood favorites, Cookies ‘n Cream.

Except this is BROWNIES ‘N CREAM, and who wouldn’t adore that?

You CHOWED DOWN on a cone after I photographed these beauties. Girlie, if you didn’t look spookily like me most of the time, your love for food would prove whose daughter you were time and again.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is this week, I thought reprising my Guinness Brownies would be a good idea… and I decided to throw them into a standard no churn ice cream base because WHY NOT?

Did you know that Guinness makes these brownies so much richer and the chocolate more intense? It does. And if you don’t have any Guinness on hand, you can substitute in your favorite stout beer – it’ll work like a charm!

When the brownies cook, the alcohol cooks off, so little ones can enjoy this recipe, too.

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day, a birthday or any regular day, No Churn Guinness Brownie Ice Cream is creamy, rich and decadent!

So. You bake these incredibly dense and powerfully chocolate brownies, cut them into bite-sized pieces… and then make your no churn ice cream.

No churn ice cream consists of two ingredients: heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.

That’s it.

Stir in the brownie bites, pour into a metal pan – I used the same one I baked the brownies in – and pop in the freezer overnight.

The next day, scoop the ice cream into cones or cups, and enjoy.

Easy, peasy.

And oh-so-chocolatey and scrumptious.

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks

Ice Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream , chilled

Instructions

Make the brownies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 8"x8" square baking pan with parchment paper, then spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cocoa powder with the melted butter.
  3. Measure the sugars and vanilla into the chocolate mixture. Stir until combined.
  4. Crack the eggs into another bowl, and break the yolks using a fork. Pour into the chocolate and sugar mixture, mixing until combined.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and salt.
  6. Sprinkle the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, then add the Guinness. Stir until the mixture is smooth.
  7. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the dark chocolate chips/chunks on top of the batter.
  8. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the edges are firm and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  9. When the brownies are cooked through, remove from the oven, and let cool completely.
  10. Cut into ½” bite-sized cubes. and set aside.

Make the ice cream

  1. Pour the heavy whipping cream into a large bowl.
  2. Using a hand or stand mixer, whip the cream. Start off slowly, then increase the speed until the cream transforms into whipped cream.
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk into the whipped cream, stirring until just combined.
  4. Sprinkle in the brownie bites, and fold into the ice cream.
  5. Pour into a metal baking dish (I used the baking dish that the brownies baked in!), and press plastic wrap on top of the ice cream.
  6. Freeze overnight.
  7. When frozen solid, scoop, and serve on ice cream cones or in cups, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Shortcut: If you don’t want to bake your own brownies, purchase a small pan from the store and cut into bite-sized pieces. Use those in this ice cream instead.

    I love that you made cookies n cream ice cream with brownies!! This is totally what I’m craving for breakfast this morning… Is that wrong…? Happy belated bday little lady A!!!! 🙂

    • Erin

      I heard that ice cream for breakfast actually makes you test better, so… ice cream for breakfast for all! And thank you, friend!

  2. Julia Mueller

    Ahhhhmylaaaaw I’m going bonkers over this ice cream! I’ve never tried guinnness in a sweet treat, but it’s one of my favorite beers so I’ve been meaning to get ON it! Loving this no-churn delight!

    • Erin

      You’ve never tried Guinness in a sweet treat?!? Oh, Julia. You gotta give it a go because that stout just makes the chocolate that much more decadent. Enjoy this or whatever Guinness sweet treat you end up making!

  3. Elaine @ Dishes Delish

    I love ice cream and LOVE that this is no churn. I am afraid to have an ice cream machine in my house because I’d be continually making the addicting stuff. So, I’m going to proceed with caution. But I am going to make this fabulous recipe!

    • Erin

      Elaine, we are clearly very similar because I don’t keep an ice cream maker in my house for the same reason! That said… now that I can make no churn ice cream, there’s no need for it, and I have to monitor myself so we don’t have ice cream daily. 😉

  4. Erren

    I love ice cream recipes and the fact that it’s no churn makes it even better! Such lovely flavor combinations too! 🙂

    • Erin

      No churn ice cream is just the BEST! So glad that you love this flavor combination, too. 🙂

  5. Cookin Canuck

    Brownies & cream? I am in love with this idea! Guinness is such a great way to add some depth to the chocolate-y flavor.

    • Erin

      Thank you! It’s absolutely delicious! And you’re right: Guinness adds fantastic depth to that chocolatey goodness.

  6. Des @ Life's Ambrosia

    Now THIS is a St. Paddy’s day dessert! Looks so good!

    • Erin

      Yes, it absolutely is! Thanks!

  7. Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious

    I’d be happy with the brownie! Add it to the easy no churn ice cream and I am in heaven!

    • Erin

      You and me both, Dorothy! But those brownies just put this ice cream over the top. Enjoy!

  8. Sue Ringsdorf

    Oh man. You had me at brownies!! But add ice cream and BEER in the brownies?! Wowza. Looks delicious!!

    • Erin

      Yes, ma’am! ALL the things! Enjoy!

  9. Catalina @ Peas & Peonies

    I really need to try this Guinness Ice cream! Looks delicious!

  10. Krista

    Now this is an ice cream I need in my life!

  11. carrie @ frugal foodie mama

    Brownies & cream is 10 times better than cookies & cream! This ice cream looks amazing. 🙂

    • Erin

      AGREED, Carrie! Thank you so much!
