This Brownie and Ice Cream Tower Dessert is divine. It’s Fudgy brownies with strawberry and banana ice cream all covered in hot chocolate fudge!
Brownie and Ice Cream Tower Dessert
We are putting this massive tower of chocolate and fruit together. I hope you’ve made (or at least bought) your strawberry banana ice cream (remember, it needs to sit overnight to harden) and made your decadent chocolate brownie layers. I love chocolate covered and chocolate dipped fruit, so that was my inspiration in creating this over the top dessert filled with strawberries and bananas. The added baked brownies just added to the amazing flavor with the homemade hot fudge. This Brownie and Ice Cream Tower Dessert is sure to leave your guests 100% satisfied and totally cheating on their diets!
I’ve made my brownies in a 9 inch and 6 inch round pans to give it this tiered effect. Isn’t it just amazing to look at? It was so impressive standing on my beautiful Mackenzie Childs cake platter with the gold accents. I love this platter!!
The day that you are going to serve this you’ll want to make your homemade hot fudge sauce. This hot fudge takes about an hour and a half to make, so plan accordingly.
Once you have made this hot fudge, you may never want to buy it in a jar again. Who needs all that extra stuff? Polycarbonate 60? What is that? And nobody needs High Fructose Corn syrup in their diet.
The great thing about this recipe is that it makes a quart and can be stored in your fridge. I placed my leftovers in a mason jar and put it in the fridge. Hey, if Ben and Jerry make this hot fudge in their shops, then you know it’s good!
I hope you enjoy this decadent dessert. I’m sure your guest will be impressed with this Brownie and Ice Cream Tower Dessert! Just dipping the fresh fruit into the fudge was like Heaven to me!
