Frangelico Brownie Gelato Dessert

Thursday, April 8, 2010

I love Chocolate Gelato ( Italian frozen confection) and brownies, so this is two treats in one for me.
What can be better than a brownie, with dark chocolate chip creamy gelato, whipped cream and chocolate sauce? Saving the best part of this brownie...... It has a shot of Frangelico on top, saturating the brownie,  so good!

I love homemade gelato. This done in a ice cream maker, comes out so smooth and very creamy.

You can use these tins, the bottom comes right out for easy removal of the cake, or make a large pan and cut into a square.

Dark Chocolate Brownies
2 squares( 1-oz each) unsweetened chocolate melted in the microwave or over hot water
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together until well blended, around 50 strokes by hand. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes in 8x8 greased pan, or make mini muffin cups, fluted removable bottom pans shown above for individual desserts or brownie pan. The recipe can easily be doubled. When cool, you can also frost these if not making the whole dessert.

Double Chocolate Chip Gelato (Makes about 3 cups)

1 shot of Frangelico
whipped cream in a can
1 scoop of double chocolate chip gelato
brownie squares
chocolate fudge sauce (sub Frangelico for Kahlua in this recipe)
Place brownie on a pretty plate, sprinkle with a shot of Frangelico, top with a scoop of chocolate gelato, garnish with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
