Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches {gluten-free + vegan}

Did you know that Enjoy Life Foods now has boxed mixes? I was so excited when I found this out because Enjoy Life is one of our absolute favorite, go-to brands when it comes to allergy-friendly, safe treats. I recently had the opportunity to try out one of each of their new mixes and let me tell you, they were fantastic!

The mixes include All-Purpose Flour, Pizza Crust Mix, Brownie Mix, Muffin Mix, and Pancake + Waffle Mix. Each of them are certified gluten-free and free from the eight most common allergens. They are also certified kosher, halal, vegan, and non-GMO. The mixes include a shelf-stable probiotic for immune health. My favorite part is that each mix only calls for oil and water. Simple and I don't have to worry about having other ingredients on hand. Perfect!

I used the Pancake + Waffle Mix for just that...pancakes. It was very easy to use. I usually throw a bunch of ingredients together for a from-scratch pancake mix and sometimes they turn out but other times they don't. In this case, the pancakes turned out perfectly and I didn't have to measure all of the ingredients. Really great for a quick weekend breakfast before soccer games.

I used the Muffin Mix for my Lemon Blueberry Muffins here. Another great aspect of these mixes is that they are super versatile. I've seen such a variety of recipes created from each one and they all look delicious. I used the All-Purpose Flour in a batch of gluten-free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies (I don't have a recipe for them as they were more of an experiment that I need to keep working on). The Pizza Crust Mix will be my last endeavor as I have quite a few ideas for that one and I can't wait to see if they all work out. Stay tuned and I will share that one soon!

As for the Brownie Mix, I could've just made standard brownies and I am sure they would be amazing. But I decided to mix it up a little and create a fun, cool, end of summer treat. These Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches were a cinch!

 Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches {gluten-free + vegan}

1 box Enjoy Life Foods Brownie Mix
1 pint allergy-friendly ice cream, any flavor (I used So Delicious Dairy Free Neopolitan)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (I used a half sheet pan which is 18" x 13"). 

Prepare the brownie mix according to package instructions.  Using a spatula, spread the prepared brownie mix evenly onto the parchment paper, to about 1/4-inch thickness. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until the brownies are set in the middle. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. 

Set ice cream of choice out to soften slightly. Using the parchment paper, lift the brownie from the baking sheet and place it on a cutting board. Using a round cookie cutter, cut circles from the brownies. Peel each circle off of the parchment and lay them out on a flat surface. Half of them should be placed upside down. 

Once the ice cream has softened some, use a spoon or ice cream scoop to place two scoops on each of the upside down brownie circles. Top each one with another brownie circle and press down slightly so that they stick and the ice cream spreads to the edges. 

Wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and place in the freezer immediately to set up before serving.
