Trust me when I say that this indulgent dessert of Kahlua-drenched brownies with vanilla ice cream is the perfect dessert for a grown-up dinner party.
Having a slice of cake or a piece of brownie with a scoop of ice cream isn’t anything unusual. But drenching chopped brownies in Kahlua, drizzling caramel syrup over them, then sandwiching them between layers of ice cream is a bit out of the ordinary.
The brownies I used were ones I baked last night. Butterscotch brownies with slivered almonds and chocolate fudge brownies with walnuts. You may use store-bought if you like but remember to chill them before cutting.
A few photos to demonstrate just how easy it is to put this dessert together. Cut the brownies then shower them with Kahlua. Scoop ice cream into glasses, add brownies, smother with caramel, top with more ice cream and brownies. And that’s it! Forget dieting and enjoy.
