Tried it Tuesday: Brownie Ice Cream Cups

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting our family.

Brownies are great.  Ice cream is great.  Together, the’re FABULOUS!  So what could be better than Brownie Ice Cream Cups?  When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a shot!

(Go look at that pin.  Seriously. How beautiful is that?)  I had to try it!  It was time for another Tried it Tuesday!

I followed the directions exactly.  I mixed up a batch of brownies, filled the muffin tins half full, and set my second set of muffin “tins” on top.  All I had were silicone muffin “tins”, so that’s what I used.

Sorry for the fuzzy picture. I *might* have been taking these pictures in the middle of the night the night before M’s birthday party…


I baked the allotted amount of time and when I took them out, I had brownies with muffin tins on top.  They were flat, circular brownies with NO rims.  So…I tried to do something a little different with the next batch.  I filled the tins a little fuller and when I put the top tins on, I pushed them down until I could see the batter coming up over the rims.  I once again baked and once again (to my disappointment), ended up with flat brownies.  Delicious, but definitely not cups.  This time, they had a little bit more of a rim, but nothing that would hold ice cream.

So…PINTEREST: FAIL.  But…I still had delicious brownies!  And they were tasty mixed in with ice cream or as a motivational tool!

And they looked adorable at my daughter’s birthday party in a big, festive bowl!

There are a couple things I could have done differently that may have made it work better.

1. Use regular tins instead of silicone on top.  They would have been a little heavier and might have helped.

2. Use an extra egg in the recipe to make more “cake-like” brownies.

Have you tried this recipe?  Did it work for you?  I’d love to know if I did something wrong!
