Coffee Brownie Sundae Recipe
Let's talk freezer food. What's in your freezer? We recently had to invest in a deep-freeze. We have too much salmon, too much rhubarb, too much snowshoe hare, and too many razor clams. Oh yeah. Be jealous. I bet that you, too, wish you had a freezer full of "Alaskan" food you won't eat because you don't like any of it. Oh, there's also cookie dough and apple strudel that I bought from a school fundraiser. Last February.
What's in the freezer that I like? Lately, I've taken to eating Dreyer's Half-the-fat Coffee Ice Cream (One of the few pleasures in life that is better than ice cream straight out of the carton?). This week I wanted to dress it up so I added warm brownies straight out of the oven. You will not be disappointed if you try this hot/cold delectable dessert combination.
Well, you'll probably regret it the next day. After all, who stops at one brownie?
