For my mom's birthday dessert she requested an ice cream dessert that included something chocolatey and peanutty... This was a recipe that I wanted to try for a while, so I decided to go for it! It was definitely a hit... I made up a double batch for our whole family at Sunday dinner and there was not a lot left. Everyone kept going back for a few more bites! :) While the dulce de leche took some time to cook it was worth the sweet taste.
(recipe found on pinterest via cakestudent.com)
1 prepared pan of brownies (in a 9″ spring form pan)
1 half gallon vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup nutella
chocolate animal crackers, crushed (2 cups worth)
dulce de leche, as recipe states
sweetened condensed milk
2 snickers, chopped
Dulce de leche: Place sweetened condensed milk in a pie plate and cover with foil. Place in roasting pan and pour water into bottom of roasting pan until it is up the sides of the pie plate. Put in preheated oven (425) and cook for 1 hour, chickening occasionally to make sure the water level remains about halfway up pie plate. Cook until golden brown color and thickened. Let cool completely. Mix together nutella and crushed animal crackers, adding a small amount of milk to make spreadable. Spread a layer of nutella mixture onto the brownies. Freeze for 15 minutes while ice cream is softening. Spread a layer of ice cream. Top with the dulce de leche and then chopped snickers. Freeze.
