DIY Valentine's Day Gift: Heart Shaped Ice Cream Sandwiches

DIY Valentine's Day Gift: Heart Shaped Ice Cream Sandwiches

Valentine's Day is next week.

I've been so busy with our Hunny Bunny that I almost forgot.

We don't do much for Valentine's Day. But we do exchange gifts!

My husband always buys me something.

I prefer to make something personal for him each year.

Last year I was pregnant and just too tired to pull anything together.

So this year I want to make up for it a bit by making Heart Shaped Ice Cream Sandwiches!

My husbands favorite ice cream flavor is Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup so I decided to do brownies for the sandwiches and peanut butter ice cream for the filling.

Take a look below for the easy instructions.

To make things simple use your favorite brownie mix and ice cream from the store.

I went with Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies and Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter World ice cream. (Try to avoid ice cream with peanut butter cups so it's easier to spread.)

Mix the brownies according to the instructions.

Spread the batter on a baking pan. The batter should be spread thin enouh so the brownies don't rise more than an inch. 

After the brownies have cooked and cooled, cut then using a heart shaped cookie cutter.

Then remove the brownie hearts from the pan with a spatula.

Soften the ice cream on the counter for a bit.

Then stir it in a bowl to make it more pliable for spreading.

Gently distribute the softened ice crem on one side of the sandwich using a silicone spatula.

Place the other half of the sandwich on top and Voila!

Serve immediately or freeze in an airtight container.

HAPPY EATING!
