Strawberry Brownie Sundae Bites

by Darla

Strawberry Brownie Sundae Bites from BakingdomDid you know that July is national ice cream month? It’s like the best idea for how to spend a month that anyone has ever thought of. Except maybe chocolate month. That’s awesome, too.

Strawberry Brownie Sundaes from BakingdomI decided that I wanted to celebrate with a little faux ice cream sundae. I made easy, fudgy mini brownies with waffle cone crusts and topped them with a scoop of strawberry buttercream in place of ice cream. Although, you could totally do for real ice cream if you wanted to. I even topped these little cuties with a bit of whipped cream and cherries.

Mini Strawberry Brownie Sundaes from BakingdomI used a whipped strawberry frosting on these, but I’ve also made them with real strawberry ice cream…along with a couple dozen other flavors, and everything has been deliciousness.

Strawberry Brownie Sundae Bites
Makes one 8×8-inch pan, or about 18 mini brownies

Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST
6 waffle cones, crushed
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

One recipe Homemade Brownies
Half recipe Strawberry buttercream (omit rose water, if desired), or ice cream of your choice

Lightly spray an 8×8-inch pan (or a mini cheesecake pan or cupcake pan) with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.

To make the crust: Combine the crushed waffle cones, sugar, and butter. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. If making minis, press about one teaspoon of cone mixture into each cupcake cup.

Once the brownie batter is ready, pour it into the prepared pan (for minis, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter in each cup). Bake as directed in the brownie recipe.

Allow to cool completely before topping with frosting or ice cream, and whipped cream (recipe below).

Homemade Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

To make the whipped cream: In a medium bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, whisk the cream and sugar together on high speed. Once peaks begin to form, add the vanilla and continue whisking until stiff peaks form.

Awesome! I love how you added the waffle cone crust, it really adds to the whole ice-cream thing. I had no idea July was Ice Cream Month, but I mean, if you try hard enough, every month is ice cream month. And I do. I so do.
