When I think of the holiday season, I think of family, friends, decorations, and candy canes. I love decorating cookies, stringing up lights, and stirring a good candy cane into hot chocolate.
In my opinion, chocolate and peppermint go together in almost any dessert.
This holiday season I wanted to make something new, fun, festive, and loaded with chocolate and peppermint – Gluten-Free Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake.
This Gluten-Free Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake, like most of my dessert recipes, is super simple to make.
I used Enjoy Life Foods Brownie Mix, dairy-free ice cream (or whipped cream if you want it lighter), crushed candy canes, and chocolate sauce.
That’s it! And doesn’t it look like one of those ice cream cakes you’d purchase at a specialty bakery or ice cream shop?
I used a spring foam pan for this cake so I could show you the sides and inside of the cake.
You can use a regular cake pan if you don’t need to “display” the cake in it’s full Gluten-Free Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake glory.
Don’t be nervous to make this Gluten-Free Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake. It really is simple, and anyone can make it. This next year I might see if I can develop a no-bake version, that way it’s even simpler.
If you love chocolate and peppermint, you’ll love this Gluten-Free Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Cake. You can enjoy a slice at a time, and freeze the leftovers for up to three months.
