Once brownie batter is combined, spread into prepared pan and bake for 18-20 minutes, until set in the middle (it shouldn’t jiggle if you give it a shake).

6
Let brownie cool completely (you can use the refrigerator or freezer to do this more quickly).
7
When brownie is cooled, open the top and sides of the carton of Chapman’s Mint Chip ice cream so you have one rectangular block.
8
Use a sharp knife to cut a 1 ½ inch wide slice of ice cream from the long side. Place block of ice cream on one half of the brownie base. Repeat one more time and place the second block of ice cream on the second half of the brownie base. (Note: if you have a deep 8” or 9” pan, you can simply cut the ice cream block in half and use the entire thing).

Let ice cream warm for 10 minutes, then use an offset spatula to smooth the ice cream and fill in any gaps.

10
Place the ice cream cake in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours (this will depend on how soft your ice cream was when you spread it) or overnight.
11
Loosen the sides of the ice cream cake with a knife and use the parchment to remove the ice cream cake from the pan – this will make it easier to slice. If desired, use a sharp knife to trim the edges all around the cake so they are straight and smooth.
12
Decorate the cake with chocolate sauce, mini chocolate chips and fresh mint leaves, as desired. Serve and enjoy!
