Chocolate Brownies (Grain Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo)

Grain-Free Chocolate Brownies via DeliciouslyOrganic.net #paleo

As we continue on our journey to healthy eating, it’s important to be conscious of the products we are using and do our best to reduce waste. Check out these statistics:

Total number of plastic bags used worldwide annually 1 trillion
Total number of plastic bags used every minute 1 million
Total number of years it takes for a plastic bag to degrade 1,000 years
Total amount of plastic bags discarded in 2008 3.5 million tons
Total amount of plastic floating in every square mile of the ocean 46,000 pieces
Average amount of plastic bags consumed per family in 4 trips
to the grocery store 60
Total amount of plastic bags used by US citizens every year 100 billion

These numbers are pretty shocking. So how do we begin to reduce our waste? One way is to trade in our disposable bags for reusable ones. At my house we pack lunches each day before school, so when a stainless steel or glass container isn’t a good fit, I use Lunchskins. They are reusable sandwich bags that are dishwasher safe. Over the last year, I’ve picked up a few Lunchskins here and there at the store and overtime we’ve drastically reduced our plastic bag use. I use them on road trips, or to stash a snack in my purse. My husband packs food in them and keeps them in the pocket of his flight suit for when he needs a quick meal. A few weeks ago when we went hiking in Yosemite, I packed all of our snacks in Lunchskins—we didn’t throw away a single bag during our entire trip!

To celebrate Earth Day and to help us on the path of reducing, reusing and recycling, Lunchskins has kindly offered a $100 giveaway package for one Deliciously Organic reader.

A brownie is one of my kid’s favorite treats to take to school. Many of you have asked that I create more recipes without almond flour, so this recipe is for you! They are fudgy and moist, but not too dense. Coconut flour, cocoa powder, butter or ghee, honey and bittersweet chocolate chips make for a fun, easy-to-make occasional indulgence. To keep this recipe dairy-free, I used the fatty portion of the coconut milk that rises to the top when refrigerated. It’s best to place a can of coconut milk in the fridge the night before and then scoop off the dense coconut cream that rises to the top.  

Chocolate Brownies (Grain Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo)

Serving Size: Makes one 8x8-inch pan.

Chocolate Brownies (Grain Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo)

For a much lighter flavor you can omit the chocolate chips and espresso powder.

Ingredients

    For the batter:

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse Celtic sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (make sure it's grain-free!)
*
  • 6 large eggs
  • 
1/2 cup coconut cream skimmed from the top of the coconut milk (see above description)

  • 6 tablespoons ghee, butter or coconut oil, melted (click here for an easy homemade ghee recipe)

  • 3/4 cup raw honey (I used clover)

  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips or a chocolate bar chopped into small pieces (I prefer Trader Joe’s organic bars or Equal Exchange because they don’t contain soy.)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Cut two long pieces of unbleached parchment paper that are 8-inches wide. Fit parchment into length of 8x8-inch baking pan, pushing it into corners and up sides of pan; allow excess to overhang pan edges. Fit other piece of parchment into width of pan in the same manner, perpendicular to the first sheet (this keeps the brownies from sticking and will give you the ability to lift the brownies out of the pan after they have been baked for even cutting).

Place coconut flour, cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Whisk gently to combine ingredients. Place eggs, coconut cream, melted ghee, honey, espresso powder and vanilla in the blender and blend until smooth (this step is necessary because the coconut cream is very thick and it will ensure a smooth brownie batter). Whisk wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until smooth, about 30 seconds. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into the parchment-lined baking dish and spread evenly using an off-set spatula. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until edges are set and a cake tester inserted into the middle of the brownies comes out with a few moist crumbs (be careful not to over bake). Cool for 10 minutes and then, holding onto the parchment, gently lift the brownies out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Cut brownies and serve.

*To make homemade grain-free baking powder combine 1 part baking soda, 1 part arrowroot powder and 2 parts cream of tartar. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    Last year, I began using reusable tote bags for grocery shopping. I also love giving gifts in reusable totes to encourage my friends to reduce, reuse, and recycle (not to mention these totes are way cuter than plastic grocery store bags).

  2. mary weiss

    Canning our own food and produce, including beans, has allowed me to cut down on the amount of packaged waste. We also use cloth dish towels, napkins, etc..and no plastic bottled water.

  3. Jessica

    I always use shoe boxes for storage. They are great for craft supplies and hair bows/brushes. I also use shopping bags to line our smaller trash cans in the bathrooms and office.

  4. Missy

    Reducing waste and living more organically has recently become a priority to my family. We just kind of started paying more attention to what we are doing (and eating). We’ve started using old dish towels instead of paper towels and we made compost pile. This morning, I spend half an hour finding where I could recycle #5 plastics. . . Whole Foods!!! Still searching for what to do with those dog food bags. . . any suggestions?

  5. Jana

    I use my own bags, buy bulk, cook from scratch & recycle to name a few. I only put my trash out once a month. Thanks for the opportunity to win & try out this awesome product! How your DaZe Beautiful…;)

  6. Emma P.

    My husband and I use only reusable grocery bags, glass bottles for water and glass containers for food storage. Plus I try to remember to take reusable bags when out shopping at Target, World Market and TJMAXX.

  7. Alexandra Hubbard

    Over the last year we’ve worked to reduce our food waste (and increase our well-being and be eco-friendly) by joining a CSA for local organic produce, meat and eggs. We also started a huge garden on our property with a diverse amount of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs. Finally, I learned and took a few classes on food preservation- I love dehydrating, pickling and canning. We switched over to reusable bags, all cloth napkins and dishtowels. As a scientist, I was also concerned about the amount of harm that the industrial food culture was doing to the environment and our health. I’m thrilled with how this year has gone and how much less wasteful we are.

  8. I’d love to win! And those brownies look amazing! To reduce waste (and mainly, to be healthier…), I’m buying less packaged foods, and more whole foods, recycling more, and using Norwex cloths instead of cleaners and paper towels.

  9. To reduce waste, I am planting my own garden with my girlfriend and we’ve started a compost pile. We’re also shopping with reusable grocery bags. Glad to see you have such a great following, and thank you to your husband for serving our nation! I’m a prior Marine Corps Officer myself and have assembled a culinary video blog at KitchenlessChef.com following my time in the Corps. I can only hope to grow it like you have with your site, and I will be focusing on Paleo soon since I have used that diet to lose a lot of weight and get in shape quickly for summer! :)

  10. Justine

    I already have a couple resusable bags like these and I LOVE them! I can’t wait to get more.

    To try and reduce waste, my family buys recycled toilet paper and paper towels and we have drastically reduced our use of paper towels. I buy cloth napkins at thrift stores and use those to clean up most messes. We use resusable shopping bags instead of plastic. We recycle. We find use for things that would normally be thrown out (glass jars, bins, etc). We try and purchase products from companies that are mindful of waste and sustainability. There’s still so much more we could be doing!!!

  11. Catherine

    In general, I try to reduce waste by using reusable materials when I can (grocery bags, mesh produce bags, cloth napkins, etc.) and reusing disposable materials (e.g. using plastic grocery bags for trash bags). I would love to add these bags to my home!

  12. Andrea

    We have been slowly changing our food storage over to glass (from plastic). It’s much harder, especially with freezing, but there are so many ways to reuse with glass (coconut oil, tomato puree, etc.) that I have a lot of ‘extras’ for when breakage occurs.

  13. Marie

    We use reusable containers, and if there’s something where a zip-lock bag really makes more sense to use, I re-use them until they are shot:)

    I think a win-win to this whole thing is if it is usually Eco-frienldy, it’s also wallet friendly:)

  14. kelly

    We are saving all of our secondary bags- ie: cereal bags, bulk purchase bags, etc. – and using them for things like kitty litter disposal or any kind of secondary use we can think of. If it isn’t used at least twice, it isn’t thrown out :)

  15. Holly

    I have just started to eat healthier and be greener. We have tried to use more glass containers to store food in and also use tote bags for our groceries instead of getting plastic bags at the store.

  16. Karen

    Carrie – the brownies look/sound divine! Can’t wait to try out the recipe. Also, thanks for your efforts in getting other manufacturers to donate goodies for us to win. I hope it’s ME!

  17. I am working toward a plastic free kitchen (slowly but surely). Every time I see a good glass jar at a thrift store or yard sale I snatch it up. I have been reusing jars from salsa and pasta sauce too until I can find better long term containers.

  18. Amy

    I’m trying to get better at reusing. I have been saving my egg shells to crunch and scatter around the plant to keep snails away. I also bought a Berkey, so no more water bottles for us!

  19. Emily

    I am reusing all of my glass jars instead of recycling them. Also, I make my own mayo and plan on learning to make all other condiments too, so that I am not buying those disposable containers.

  20. Karen A.

    I use reusable containers for school lunches, cloth napkins for dinner, etc. I think the color on this product would brighten up any take away meal! Plus the brownies are fabulous sounding.

  21. Heather Luna

    We have started using re-usble bags, are using cloth napkins more regularly and are looking into composting. I would love to win these bags. They have become my latest crush. So cute and durable. Plus I love that they’re dishwasher friendly!

  22. We’ve switched to cloth napkins and use dish towels much more frequently than paper towels. The plastic bags get me though, as we still use them. I’d be delighted to win some Lunchskins to help with that! And on that note, I have a question … Do you have a solution for all the plastic produce and bulk bags at the grocery store? I shop the bulk section every week, and I’m always throwing away plastic bags when I come home. Any ideas for a replacement for these?

  23. Erin

    To reduce waste we have been composting, using reusable grocery bags, recycling, packing our lunches in glassware and taking our own silverware with our lunches. We also use cloth napkins, cleaning rags, diapers and wipes.

  24. Lezlee

    We just rededicated ourselves to ALWAYS using a reusable bag for shopping trips, or picking paper bags if we forget. We are going to start lining our kitchen trash can with a paper bag instead of a plastic one. We also compost all our kitchen waste.

  25. Michelle

    I am reducing waste by using washable cloths instead of paper towels. I also keep my reusable shopping bags in the trunk of my car so that I won’t forget them when I go to the store.

  26. Stacey

    I used cloth diapers when my children were little. I use cloth napkins, and cloth ‘faker’ towels (as my daughter likes to call them ~ instead of paper), and I almost always bring my own grocery bags. I have switched to cloth panty liners and use a diva cup instead of tampons.

  27. Kali Michelle P

    We use reusable grocery bags, we haven’t had paper towels in our home for years, I use family cloth and mama cloth, when I do use plastic zipper bags (guilty!) I rinse and reuse them as many times as possible, I have a whole collection of reusable water bottles/drink cups, I have a reusable lunch set (containers and bag) to make sure I don’t use throw aways when I’m out and about (plus I don’t end up eating something I’ll regret).

  28. kelly

    we now have water bottles and lunchboxes for the kids and these reusable baggies would fit in nicely. We have also used mason jars instead of plastic containers and recycle our grocery bags or use reusable ones.

  29. Two main things – we have switched to all glass storage containers instead of those washable plastic ones (which usually get tossed pretty frequently). I also keep my paper towels underneath my sink now instead of on the counter. I use kitchen towels now and have gone from using at least one roll of paper towels a week to barely one a month.

  30. Stephanie

    Soooo excited about the Lunchskins give away. I pack lunches for my husband and 3 of my boys (will be 4 starting in the fall) That’s over 750 lunches in 1 year!!!! (just for the hubby and 3 kiddos)

  31. We recycle religiously! My husband is the ring leader and checks and double checks every bottle, jar, box, etc to see what number is in the triangle to determine whether or not it’s recyclable! These little baggies would help cut down a tremendous amount of waste with my son’s school snacks. Thanks!

  32. Susan Parker

    I use cloth bags at the market (have for quite some time). My biggest problem was paper towels and paper napkins. I would use a roll of paper towels per day and large pkg. of napkins (500 count) per every two weeks….I gave them up in January.

    I bought cloth diapers online, flat ones, (not pre-fold), they were very big (27×27″ I think), I cut in half and stitched along edges – got 2 towels out of 1 dipaer. They cost about $1.00 per diaper (approx.) so each towel cost $0.50. I bought 36, so I have 72 paper (not) towels that I use. I have about 30 in a basket on my counter, and if that gets low, I grab a stack from the pantry and put in the basket. When whites get full in dirty laundry, I wash them. I also have 40 small size (white – from diapers) napkins.

    It has eliminated our family’s paper consumption and saved me money. Average savings since Jan. 2013 is close to $100.00 (that’s including what it would cost for me to buy paper towels and paper napkins for my family – MINUS, my inital cost of diapers).

    And it’s great not to buy paper towels every week at the store…more money towards produce and debt.

    Susan

  33. Kelly Irene

    What do you do with the remainder of the coconut milk? I am totally new to this!

    To answer your question, we use cloth napkins and paper towels and I try to bring my own bags (but I’ve been admittedly lax about that!) I also try to be really aware of packaging when I make a purchase.

  34. Amanda P

    We recycle as much as we can. I have bought cloths for cleaning and am trying really hard not to use paper towels. I love the idea of reusable lunch bags, we use too many plastic baggies.

  35. Christine W

    we just bought a “smart” nest thermostat. i also just picked up a cheap 10-pack of towels from ikea (a perfect small size) because i am tired of using paper towels! we have a lot of messes around with a 2 and half year old and a baby, so the hand towels are coming in quite handy!

  36. Laurie

    I own some lunchskins and metal sandwhich tins which my kids take to school. Unfortunately, some of the reusable containers get inadvertently thrown in the trash so I could use some more.

  37. aprile

    I have tried to cut down on ziploc baggies and this would be a great replacement. we have also started compost. And resuse all plastic bags from store for diaper pail, as well take our own reusable grocery bags.

  38. Lori

    I am sure you had a great time at Yosemite. I love this park. My first memory was driving through the tunnel and the the Yosemite valley opening up below. It was an April trip @17 years ago. I will never forget the beauty of that day.

    Thanks for the facts on your post about plastic bags. Wow. I will read to my husband and son tonight.

  39. Gail

    I’ve been wanting to get some of these! Just last night I was made aware of how many plastic baggies we use in this house…and I’d like to start replacing them with reusable ones. I have a question though: do you have any issues with them getting moldy? How do you keep them dry in between uses? Air dry? Also, these brownies look amazing! I want to try it soon! I have a black bean brownie recipe that I’m wanting to try soon too…have you had any success with these types of recipes? They sound disgusting (the black bean ones) but I’m trying to replace my treats with healthier ones because I have such a sweet tooth but we’re cutting out processed sugar. The recipe I’m using calls for “xylitol”. Are you in favor of, or had any experience with? Also…one last question, you mentioned that you use the choc. chips that don’t contain soy. Is it because you are allergic or some other reason? I’ve heard so much controversy on soy and honestly don’t know where to land. There are camps of people who rave about tofu and soymilk, etc. then there are those that say no no…it’ll raise estrogen levels too much, etc. I’m in the middle, and clearly confused! Okay, now that’s like 5 questions…sorry!

    Thanks a million,
    Gail

      I’ve never had an issue with the Lunchskins getting moldy. After I wash them, I turn them inside-out and dry it with a cloth. Then I let them sit inside-out until they are ready to use. The pantry looks a bit funny with them all inside-out, but it works! :)

      I haven’t tried a black bean brownie yet. I don’t eat many legumes, but it looks like an interesting idea. I’m not a fan of xylitol because most companies make that sweetener with gmo corn or sometimes tree bark. It’s a “new” sweetener, so I prefer to stick with the old-school kinds like raw honey, maple syrup, etc. I stay away from soy because it can have negative affects on the thyroid, adrenals and metabolism. It also contains enzyme inhibitors and most soy in the US is GMO. If I ever do eat soy, it’s only when it’s been fermented such as in Oshama Tamari. Here’s an interesting article that gives more details about soy: http://www.westonaprice.org/soy-alert/ploy-of-soy

  40. Reusable lunchbots containers & making my own shower scrub, shampoo, etc.

    For the recipe…do you think it would work with applesauce instead of egg whites. I could still use the 6 yolks..but have an sensitivity to the whites?

    • Deliciously Organic

      I haven’t tested it, but it seems like a good option. If the batter is super thick, then I’d add a bit more applesauce to add more moisture. Coconut flour can be tricky that way!

  41. Anthea

    These look awesome I have never seen them before. At home I try to reduce waste with composting and I always use my own shopping bags so as to reduce plastic bag usage. I really want to leave children a healthy world to live in! BEst way I can think is to set a good example and role-model the changes that need to happen!

  42. Lisa Roudebush

    Lunchskins were the next purchase on my personal “reduce waste” campaign! We use our own waterbottles everywhere we go, and use reusable bags for all purchases. We’ve cut down on our plastic bag use by using glass containers, and when a plastic bag is more useful, I wash it out and reuse it. Always trying to get better at this though!

  43. KC

    I have never heard of the lunchskins. I wash the ziplock bags over and over because I do not want to throw them in the trash and fill the land fills. I would feel so much better packing my children’s lunches using these. Thank you for sharing information about these and I hope we win!

  44. Michelle L

    We recycle like crazy. In fact, inside the pantry door, we put up the long list of what our recycle waste management will accept so we can easily check if we forget. Now we use more glass to store food items in both the pantry and fridge. Both of our cars have reusable grocery bags in them, and we use them everywhere. Now I’m interested in composting. Thanks for the giveaway.

  45. Molly

    Recycling, reusable bags, no plastic bags for produce, make treats like granola bars and such so we don’t use wrappers, no plastic bags in lunches–pyrex, tupperware, and reusable lunch bags instead, Etc. Thank you for the chance!

  46. Tina

    I have a carload of reusable grocery bags in the back of my car. Unfortunately, I remember them as I am checking out. One of these days I’ll remember them before I walk into the store!

  47. Rosanne

    We recycle as much as is possible in our area. Also take reusable bags for grocery shopping. Have a compost pile and large garden in our backyard. We wash plastic ziplocs and reuse as many times as possible. Use cloth napkins and towels over paper most of the time. When we travel, we bring home everything we can to be recycled. Pack lunches and snacks in reusable containers. Working on eliminating plastic containers for glass. These lunchskins would be awesome for my husband’s and daughter’s lunches. Love your recipes, thanks.

  48. lisa

    I love the uses Lunchskins have. I love things and products I can reuse. I love your website. I try to be as natural as I can. It is such a healthy lifestyle and it makes you feel good. When you consume something so nutritious, it is like your body knows.

  49. Wow – I love those lunch skins. I’m all about conserving our environment and avoiding plastic when at all possible – so these are a great alternative. Thanks for the spotlight. ALSO – love that you used coconut flour in this recipe! I have been experimenting with recipes for WEEKS – so it’s nice to see you’ve found one that works nicely. Especially when it comes to brownies 😉 I look forward to giving these a go – and maybe with a twist of protein powder!

  50. Caroline

    I am using cotton totes to store my grocceries when I’m heading to the supermarkets
    ” soap bars
    ” not switching my air-conditioner (living in the tropics)
    ” my camelbak water bottle

  51. Amber

    I always use my own bags when I go grocery shopping, I hate the build up of plastic shopping bags in my house. I love these LunchSkins, they’d be perfect for my daughter who is starting Kindergarten this Fall. 😉 Thank you!

  52. Claudia

    We live overseas and try to recycle all paper,plastics, glass etc. we have also been using glass containers for food storage as well as in packed lunches, snacks, etc and use our own water bottles. Thanks for the post and amazing recipes Carrie!

  53. Kalea F.

    I use cloth napkins, reusable grocery bags, steel water bottle, and cloth dish rags. I also recycle and compost. I want to get into using glass jars to store homemade food…and make more homemade food. :)

  54. Candi

    I would love to try Lunchskins. I feel a great deal of guilt with all of the sandwich bags I use, but didn’t realize there was such a great alternative. Would rather not buy them online but i’ve never seen them in a store; can anyone tell me where I can find these?

  55. LouAnn Dahlager

    The main things I am doing to reduce waste is to buy items with less-packaging (whole, fresh foods and bulk quantities) do more home-cooking using all parts of food, and be more diligent in identifying recyclable items rather than throwing them in the trash.

  56. TIFFANY COFFMAN

    We don’t use bottled water, I use wexy bags for the kids lunches if I don’t use my laptop lunchbox containers! Our biggest obstacle is eliminating paper towels, that’s my next goal.

  57. Reusable shopping bags and containers for leftovers. Trying to keep grocery-buying under control so we don’t get more than we can use (but freezing the excess if we do go overboard!). Recycling anything we can. Buying gift bags and wraps people will want to reuse, rather than toss. Shopping Goodwill and vintage in an effort to reuse someone else’s stuff, rather than buying new.

  58. Erin Nolan

    I have been trying to reduce waste by using glass containers as often as possible to store/transport my children’s school food as opposed to plastic bags. I am very interested in these Lunchskins, they look great! What a good compromise.

  59. Sarah

    I’m trying to learn more about reducing waste. I use containers for leftovers. We recycle. We do get the plastic bags from the grocery store but use them to pick up after our puppy.

  60. Jessica

    The lunchskins are adorable! On reducing waste- I have started to buy almost everything in bulk, and orderering from azurestandard really helps me do that. :)
    Also, question… why do you prefer not to have soy? I have heard some negative things about it, mostly that it can mess with your hormones. Curious to know your reason for avoiding?

  61. I definitely make efforts to purchase things that can be recycled and reused. I do use plastic snack bags right now, but I reuse them as long as they’re not sticky or dirty. Of course, if I win this giveaway, no need for plastic bags anymore! These would definitely be put to good use!

  62. Shauna b

    We are huge fans of mason jars and we use them for just about everything. We also got rid of our plastic Tupperware and have been using glass for about 5 years. Got rid of all plastic cookin utensils and plastic bags. We’re trying to go 100% plastic free but it is very hard. A work in progress.

  63. Tracy Stone

    Grain-free brownies just doesn’t seem right, but I’m going to try these. I’ve loved your recipes that I have made, so odds are good! The lunchskins are great. I have some, but would love these!

  64. I’m so excited about this recipe! I would love to make these today and I am out of coconut milk…is there a dairy product that would sub for the coconut cream? I have milk, butter, sour cream,…oh, and i also have coconut oil. What do you think?

    At our house, we reuse as much packaging as possible, drink out of jars, compost, and are learning to bring our reusable bags to the store. We also walk to our local grocery store several times a week for fresh meat, and produce. We would love to get the plastic baggies out of our house and win those lunchskins!

  65. Melanie

    To reduce waste I make sure to fill up a water bottle for my son and one for myself every night and put them in the refrigerator and then take them to work and put them in the refrigerator so they are ready for soccer practice etc. after work. It feels good not to have to buy water and throw away a water bottle every time my son has soccer practice or I have a workout.

  66. Ally

    We grow our own veggies and berries, compost, eat leftovers, recycle, use reusable grocery totes and produce bags, buy in bulk, avoid disposables (especially bottled water and other plastics), use a HE washer and other energy efficient appliances, avoid using air conditioning, can or freeze seasonal produce, combine trips to limit driving, mulch our lawn, use green cleaners and body products, buy local and organic whenever possible, and use cloth diapers. However, we still use plastic lunch sacks and paper napkins and this is something we are trying to get away from, so these bags would be very helpful!

  67. Brooke P

    We cloth diaper, use reusable bags for grocery/normal shopping and try to use the reusable “ziplock” bags but don’t have enough to do it constantly. All of those would def help!!

  68. Jolene G

    We have taken steps to reduce waste by purchasing cloth napkins, have some lunch containers and reusable bags, and reusable bags for the grocery store. I have just added reusable produce bags to take to the grocery store to reduce the plastic bags we use even further.

    We also reduce waste by trying to purchase items used from thrift/second hand store and garage sales!

  69. Nicole S.

    One thing I have been meaning to get are these types of reusable bags, just haven’t yet! We already use rags for cleaning, cloth napkins and diapers, and use glass containers with lids instead of covering dishes with plastic wrap.

  70. Kim Helbling

    I made these just as the recipe is written except I used regular semi-sweet chocolate chips (I know:( , but it’s all I had on hand) and they were quite good. I might heat one up with some raw cream, yummy. This recipe is SO much tastier than my last go at a grain-free dessert (not one of yours). Thanks, Carrie!

  71. Elizabeth Sofia

    Made the brownies for Memorial day into a Brownie sundae cake…with 3 layers of brownie and 2 layers of ice cream and froze it…It looks fabulous and the brownies by the way are delicious!
