Three of your favorite things, all tied together in one dessert: chocolate, brownies, and ice cream.
- 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
- 1/2 cup honey/agave
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
chocolate ice cream
- 2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight (4 hr minimum)
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2/3 cup honey/agave
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup water
Preheat oven to 325ºF.
Prepare brownie base: Melt together chocolate and honey. Stir in applesauce, almond butter, salt and baking soda. Pour into a greased 9 inch spring-form pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly and place in freezer.
While brownie base is baking, prepare ice cream. Place all ingredients into a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour mixture over chilled brownie base. Place back in freezer to set, at least 2 hours.
Drizzle with melted chocolate and serve with raspberries and cream.
*for easy removal, warm a damp tea towel in the microwave and wrap around the pan. this will help release the ice cream from the pan.
*if frozen solid, this dessert can travel fine for up to 1 hr or longer if kept in a cooler bag.
