  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 14 ouncs sweetened condensed milk divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate graham crumbs


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9 inches cake pan and a medium-sized metal loaf pan with parchment paper. Place the loaf pan into the freezer.
  • Whisk together the chocolate graham crumbs and 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk until fully incorporated.
  • Press into a lined or greased 9x9 cake pan and bake 8 to 12 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Begin to prepare the ice cream base. Whip up your whipping heavy cream with a mixer for at least 2 minutes, until soft peaks form. Be careful not to overmix or the cream will turn to butter!
  • Gently stir in the remainder of sweetened condensed milk along with the vanilla extract. You don't want to deflate the cream, so avoid overmixing.
  • Fold the ice cream base into a glass cake pan or lined loaf pan then sprinkle pieces of the brownie mixture into the ice cream, pushing some pieces further into the ice cream with a spatula.
  • Cover and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with whipped cream, chocolate drizzle, sprinkles, cherries, nuts - the sky is the limit!


TIP: When you remove the cookie mixture from the oven, check if it’s done by inserting a toothpick. It should come out clean.
TIP: The cream will go through several stages - bubble, slightly thickened, rippling, then puffy and airy.
